Letter: Long best for Southwest Washington

February 27, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

Southwest Washington deserves an accessible, hardworking, problem-solving representative. That person is clearly Carolyn Long. Read story

Letter: GOP decision is self-destructive

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

Golly, after their performance in the last debate, I thought the Democrats had formed a circular firing squad. Now I see that local Republicans are engaging in the same sort of self-destructive behavior. The GOP's invitation to Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley, to be the emcee for a major Republican fundraiser is a case of "ready, fire, aim." Shea is accused of being a domestic terrorist and is shunned even… Read story

Letter: Camas action is irresponsible

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I was appalled that Dr. Liza Sejkora would resign from Camas High School for exercising her First Amendment rights on her own personal Facebook page. We do not censor our citizens for speaking their truth. The students in Camas schools just learned an awful lesson: speak your truth and you will be vilified and fired. That is not a lesson that we need to be teaching our future citizens. Read story

Letter: Support Bloomberg for president

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

After watching the Democratic primary debate on Feb. 19, one thing is clear to me: We need Mike Bloomberg in the White House. Read story

Letter: Trump wrong about cities

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

On Feb. 4, Donald Trump gave the final State of Union speech of his current term as president of the United States. He said many things I disagree with, but when he said, "In sanctuary cities, local officials order police to release dangerous criminal aliens to prey upon the public instead of handing them over to ICE to be safely removed," I got really mad and offended.

Letter: Camas principal treated unfairly

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I am writing in response to the article "Camas principal on leave following Bryant death comment" (The Columbian, Feb. 6). I wasn't aware that one gave up one's constitutional right to free speech and thought when one became an employee of the Camas School District. Read story

Letter: Get involved to end homelessness

February 26, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

In Clark County, it is not hard to spot a homeless person. As you get closer to Portland, in fact, they are practically everywhere. This is because the rate of those without a home has been on the rise in the past several years, and it is our duty as citizens to actively work toward a solution. Read story

Letter: Vote Republicans out

February 25, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

Greg Jayne notes with appropriate disgust that state Rep. Matt Shea has been invited by Clark County Republicans to emcee their Lincoln Day Gala (“Shame on county GOP for Shea,” The Columbian, Feb. 23). By thus honoring Shea, local Republican officials follow the base tone set by their supreme leader, President Donald Trump, whose amorality has now leached down to the county level. This is yet another reason why We,… Read story

Letter: Question what you believe

February 25, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

Here we are, rumbling toward the election of a president and others. It is time to think critically, to recognize when someone might be trying to spoon feed us fertilizer. Understanding a few logical fallacies might be a step toward that. Read story

Letter: Build infrastructure for livability

February 25, 2020, 6:00am Letters to Editor

The amount of people moving to Oregon and Washington is staggering. Read story
