For Todd Lauer

WELDON C. COHICK JR. Linden I happen to know Todd Lauer and I talk to him quite often. He is a Republican running for a Lycoming County commissioners seat in the May 2019 election. He is willing and able to become a county commissioner. We need more elected officials at the county and ...

Back to the future

BLAKE BERGEY Mill Hall In most elections voters are faced with a difficult decision - vote for experience or vote for change. On May 21 the voters of Clinton County have a unique opportunity to select a candidate who checks both boxes. Miles Kessinger is no stranger to Clinton County ...

In support of Christensen

KRISTI SCHLESINGER Lock Haven I got to know Mitch Christensen when he was the finance committee chairperson at our church and I was the treasurer. These were volunteer positions. Often times, volunteers are not able to give 100 percent effort to their volunteer duties. Let’s face it, our ...

Race for commissioner

TRACIE CHRISTENSEN McElhattan Dear Clinton County, I am sure that as the wife of a candidate for county commissioner, it’s no surprise to learn that I have a clear cut favorite. But what I would really like for you to know is why our family decided that it was the right time for Mitch to ...

Not in our name

Affordable health care for all is good for the economy

SHARI JACOBSON Lewisburg Capitalism can’t work if people can’t. When people are sick it is harder for them to care for their children, they miss days at work, and they have less money to spend on groceries, clothes, and other things that stimulate our economy. Right now, the only ...

In favor of Vicki Wedler

GEORGE and JANE MORTON-MONCRIEFF Port Matilda We encourage all voters to mark their ballot for Vicki Wedler running for Centre County commissioner. We call her our “little dynamo.” She became our real estate agent and there was nothing put in her way that she didn’t overcome for ...

Change? From what to what?

ART GRAY Lock Haven There are lots of ads for change in our county government, but there are also some serious questions. I think we all have had time to see what we currently have but what are we being asked to change to? Lower taxes and more services? Is this possible? I favor a ...

She knows the job

STEVE HEVERLY Bellefonte I’m greatly encouraged to see Vicki Wedler running for Centre County commissioner. With her past successful experience helping to manage the complex county government, her understanding and compassion for human problems, and her drive to “get the job ...

Last thoughts

RICHARD A. MORRIS Lock Haven For Democrats, watching the run up to the Republican primary election for Clinton County commissioner is like standing outside the bedroom door while the parents are fighting; strictly, it is none of our business, but it’s too fascinating to ignore. In ...

On two subjects

EUGENE MOORE McElhattan I read the letter to the editor from Mr. Charles Reeder on May 4 in The Express regarding the Green Deal and how there are people in Venezuela standing in line for a chicken for several hours, going home empty handed. You tell me how this works for you? No food, no ...

Global warming enthusiasts

MIKE KERSTETTER Watsontown Most of the writers who are doomsday global warming enthusiasts have not yet mastered the basic difference between climate change, which is a naturally occurring event, and anthropogenic (man-made) climate change, which has yet to be proven with any empirical ...

A bad idea

DAVID BROSS Cogan Station Initiating impeachment proceedings against President Trump is a bad idea. It would give Trump the perfect “enemy” to rail against for the next two years, thereby distracting attention away from the President’s incompetence. Instead, it is much better ...

Let the games begin

KEITH McANDREWS Williamsport I can hardly wait until the Democratic presidential candidates start campaigning against each other to win their party’s nomination. It is certainly an interesting field of candidates who are competing to lose against President Trump! The country is still ...

Experience vs. ideas

SCOTT and KELLY BAKER Dunnstable Township All too often we hear complaints in regards to career politicians and the need for change in our governmental leadership at all levels. Similarly, the talk continues because despite the opportunity that we voters have to make change, we either ...

The people

DAN REEDER Lock Haven I write this letter to weigh in on a recent letter to the editor that cited the Preamble to the United States Constitution, “We the people.” I agree with the incredible significance of this seemingly simple statement but would hasten to point out that the current ...
