Government experience qualifies Clinton Schaad

First off I would like to commend and acknowledge anyone who runs for office. I believe that it takes a special kind of person to put themselves out there for the world to judge, and the dedication that I have seen by many of our candidates is astounding.

This letter is in support of Clinton Schaad for county auditor. I have recently read ads that I believe to be very misleading. I commend Mr. Leighton for his past experience, but his experience is not applicable to the position of county auditor/controller, whereas Clinton Schaad’s experience absolutely is. He has worked within government finance for many years dealing with our very own county finances pertaining to daily operations and long-term planning, and has been a strong advocate for collecting monies owed to our county by the state.

Keeping Riese for two important trials in best interest of justice

I’m Bob Drossel. I continue to read letters to the editor and hear rumors about me hiring Mike Riese when I am elected district attorney. Let me set the record straight.

When asked at the Tea Party forum if I would hire Mr. Riese I responded that if Mr. Riese was working on the Josiah Miller trial, for the death of Michelle Dickson, and the trial for the defendants in the Josh Lacy case, I would hire him as a special prosecutor to finish those two cases and then his work with the DA’s Office would cease.

My experience shows that this is in the best interest of justice. I have spoken at length to the families of both of the victims and they requested that Mr. Riese finish the cases. These families deserve to know there will be no delay in bringing an end to the long fight to convict the people charged in the deaths of Michelle and Josh.

My vote goes to candidate who invests wealth in constituency

Is there anyone out there that thinks, as I do, that the amount of money being spent to “win” political offices in November in this country is obscene?

My vote goes to the candidate that gives those billions of dollars being spent to the state, county or town where he or she is running.

Local Chamber of Commerce should break ties with nat’l org.

Recently TV stations all over California have been flooding the airwaves with negative, deceptive attack ads smearing Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown produced and sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce currently receives huge contributions from foreign corporations including Saudi Arabia, China and India.

The local Chamber of Commerce is affiliated with the U.S. Chamber. While I feel that the local chamber is important to local business health and I support my local businesses, I would hate to think that by doing so, I was supporting these deceptive ads and large multinational Corporations.

McCollum knows how the college works, advocates for students

Greetings from Wyoming! Christine and I have been away from Crescent City for a few years but we left our hearts at Point St. George. We plan to return to be reunited with them one day soon.

Part of my affection for the county circulates around the Del Norte campus of College of the Redwoods. This is a precious institution that has improved the lives of innumerable men and women from the county.

Stephen McCollum has been a crucial and positive part of CRDN for over 30 years and he has earned your support to be the Del Norte trustee for College of the Redwoods. Stephen knows how the college works. He is respected by professors, staff and administrators. They listen to him. He influences their opinions.
