Letters to the Editor

Letter: GOP is a threat to democracy

November 14, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Whether it is incompetence or willful disruption of government, those in the House of Representatives calling themselves GOP have proven they are dysfunctional and unable to move the country forward. There are those among them that would end our democracy in favor of a strong autocratic government. Read story

Letter: Time for new leadership

November 14, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

It’s no secret that Democrats rely on getting out the young vote in general elections. With Joe Biden’s handling of the Israel/Hamas situation, even more young people are fleeing from his side. Whether you agree with their position or not, this situation might just be the tipping point that allows… Read story

Letter: Perez works for district

November 14, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I was struck by Ms. Anderson’s letter (“Perez loses touch,” Our Readers’ Views, Nov. 4). Apparently she does not subscribe to The Columbian. Read story

Letter: Vote wisely, demand integrity

November 13, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Dear political parties, choose your candidates wisely. Read story

Letter: God blessed Israel

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

In the first book in the Bible, Genesis, God told Abram to go “To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation, bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and curse… Read story

Letter: Be civically engaged

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I was 15 years old when I first canvassed for my congresswoman, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, in 2023. Why would a 15-year-old go out into the rain and freezing weather to canvas for a congressional candidate when they can’t even vote? For the same reasons anyone would do so: to… Read story

Letter: Lewallen is off the mark

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

The article covering Leslie Lewallen’s announcement of her candidacy for the 3rd District House seat (“Leslie Lewallen sets sights on Washington’s 3rd Congressional District seat,” The Columbian, Nov. 2) shows that her grasp on the truth is nearly as weak as her principal Republican opponent, Joe Kent. Read story

Letter: Short on ideas, long on vitriol

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Leslie Lewallen follows the typical Republican game plan of: 1) attacking her opponents using scare tactics (drugs will flow into Vancouver if light rail is built on the Interstate 5 Bridge); 2) making preposterous claims about the Democrats (they are responsible for the closing of Target stores in Portland; really?)… Read story

Letter: Pickleball courts, dog parks needed

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Over the past several years, housing projects have sprouted throughout the area. Salmon Creek has experienced much of this growth. What is now needed are recreational facilities to accommodate the growing population. To my knowledge, Lincoln Elementary School tennis courts are the only public pickleball courts in the city. The… Read story

Letter: Seek other options

November 11, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

In the words of a Buddhist practitioner living in Israel: “When the voices on both sides say that there are no other options, it expresses only the paths that were not taken. It is sleepwalking into suffering. It shows aggressive and reactive responses based on trauma, rather than wise actions… Read story
