To the Editor: Pretend for the moment that I’m not the Davison County Republican chairman. Pretend for the moment that I’m just a Republican, working every day to provide for my family, who hopes for lower taxes and less government intrusion in my daily life. I’m going to tell you who I think you should vote for in the District 20 state House Republican primary on Tuesday. Please note these are my personal views only.
To the Editor: Being a South Dakotan requires having a driven and balanced lifestyle. Having the guts to go for anything and the mind to keep things in perspective is...
To the Editor: Our country is in deep trouble, and putting the same familiar names into office again and again is a large part of the reason. In too many cases, government has become the family business. While brand loyalty is great for buying laundry soap, it's not a good way of picking people for government jobs, like U.S. Senate. National office holders wield a lot of power and make decisions that greatly affect our lives. The Republicans always make the mistake of choosing candidates according to whose big name is next -- just ask President Romney, for example.
To the Editor: Are you aware of the potential problem of uranium mining in western South Dakota to the rest of the state? Presently there are over 200 abandoned uranium...
To the Editor: With the flooding of TV ads, campaign signs and literature it is important the public keep a clear perspective on candidates that is based on fact and record. Many talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. Can your vote be bought? Look at voting records, legislative and government proceedings to verify and decide. Let's sweep out those who don't listen to their constituents. Candidates who resort to sending out disparaging literature about their opponent cannot be trusted -- sweep 'em.
To the Editor: Washington politicians from both parties have governed our nation with reckless abandon. America needs a new wave of public servants with fresh ideas, fresh policies and fresh leadership. Stace Nelson represents a new wave of committed public servants who will strongly appeal to young people and will encourage young people to get involved within the Republican Party. America must get back on track to provide this and future generations with the same opportunities as our parents and grandparents. If Nelson is elected to the U.S.
To the Editor: I would like to point out that on the Davison County Republican primary ballot is just one precinct committeeman or committeewoman race. I am in that race...
To the Editor: Gubernatorial candidate Joe Lowe spoke at a meet and greet in Hot Springs at the Blue Bison cafe. The cafe was packed with local citizens concerned about...
To the Editor: It's not necessarily a matter of who you vote for in the Republican primary next week, it is more that you actually demonstrate your right to do so. But as for us, we will cast our votes for Mike Rounds. The reasons are clear -- Mike has served the state of South Dakota with pride and dignity. He is a true South Dakotan, with deep roots in our state, a successful family and businessman and an honorable statesman.
To the Editor: Josh Klumb, running for the District 20 House of Representatives spot on the Republican ticket, is a bright spot for me as I look at the future of our state and national political world. I have known Josh as a part of the Mitchell Wesleyan Church for 15 or more years. As his pastor, I have watched as Josh has enthusiastically stepped forward to offer to serve time and time again.
