Rossi’s economic policy is scary

Rossi isn’t as stupid as Bush, he is, however, a Bush-style economic conservative who would rather see bridges fall into the river than know he has paid $1 more for maintenance. These guys’ economic policies are scary. By contrast, having spoken with Gov. Gregoire at Legislative Days, I found her very impressive. Sure the economy isn’t impressive, but when you realize the other Washington has led us into the toilet, I am so thankful that we had Gregoire as a governor.

Jack Hamilton’s ideology is an inadequate substitute for knowledge

Jack Hamilton’s Sound-Off (“The end is not near (except for some government officials), Oct. 4) was more off the mark than soundly on it. If nothing else, Mr. Hamilton showed once again that ideology is an inadequate substitute for what was once described as profound knowledge.

Washington has earned my vote

Walt Washington is our county auditor and he has been endorsed by retired auditor Karen Flynn. As a mater of fact, Flynn would not have retired when she did if Washington wasn’t perfectly capable of doing the job in a trustworthy, efficient and transparent as well as non-partisan way, with the highest possible ethical standards.

Garrido has integrity

I had the pleasure of getting to know Charlotte Garrido this past year. Her commitment and personal loyalty to this county made a deep impression on me. She is a person of integrity, whose strong sense of commitment to Kitsap County will serve all of us very well.

Vote yes on Initiative 1000

When you’re 30 years old feeling young and virile it is easy to feel offended that someone would seriously consider their own suicide. It’s easy to feel self-righteous, sanctimonious and above such a religiously offensive idea.

I am tired of hearing the closed-minded, one-sided views of Adele Ferguson. She has offended enough of us too often and it is time for her to move on. I know creating emotion from an article is the sign of a good writer but she only causes us anger and this latest article left me steaming.

Central Kitsap Reporter Letters to the Editor | Oct. 18

“Follow the money trail” can tell you a lot about a candidate for public office and to whom they owe their allegiance. State House of Representatives candidate Kim Abel has accepted thousands of dollars from five Washington Indian tribes. One of her tribal contributors received exclusive use of 200 feet of our Port Orchard waterfront thanks to a backroom deal with the well-noted Port of Bremerton.

North Kitsap Herald Letters to the Editor | Oct. 18

I watch in dismay and sadness as the political parties blame each other for the state of financial affairs in this great country. As a licensed mortgage broker, I have seen first hand who the real culprits are that have caused our economic calamity. The problem started from the top with the creation of stated-income mortgages, but was tragically exacerbated by the actions of the people at the bottom.
