Letter: I'm voting Democrat to protect friends and neighbors

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: Like many of you I have spent many hours recently trying to pick a new medical insurance plan for next year. It is frustrating and expensive. I am lucky I am on Medicare, but lately I read Republican Senator Mitch McConnell talking about cutting Medicare and Social Security to pay...

Letter: Vote for demonstrated leadership ability

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: On Nov. 6, Lake City will vote-in three community members to serve a four-year city council term. Four years is a long time, so make your voice heard by voting for candidates that have demonstrated an ability to lead with respect and have a strong desire to serve Lake City...

Letter: Mead's public service commitment is dubious

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: Having been out of town for a couple weeks, I just finished previous issues of The Graphic. My letter is in response to council candidate John Mead’s letter, which more now than before has many voters believing his personal obligations and self-interests are not in Lake City’s best...

Letter: Protect pro-choice

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: I hear so much about lowering taxes, less government over reach, more personal freedoms except when it comes to a woman’s body. The difficult choice to terminate a pregnancy lies with the woman, her partner, her family, her clergy or counselor, not the government. Tax money going...

Letter: Leadership transcends the issues of the day

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: There’s no shortage of opinions about the upcoming city council election in Lake City, but it does seem there is an integral gap in the conversation: who these folks are and the characteristics that make them the right leaders for our city. Issues are important, don’t get me wrong...

Letter: Keep Haley working for us

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: Just two short years ago Rep. Barb Haley was able to convince the state legislative bonding committee to stop in Lake City while on a bus tour from Red Wing to Wabasha. (This was a big deal for them to stop here; it had never been done before). They had lunch at the Marina while...

Letter: Introducing SWCD candidates, mission

Oct 25, 2018
Every time election year rolls around, I unfailingly hear… “What is the Soil and Water Conservation District?” at least once or see someone post the question on Facebook. We are increasing our efforts at public awareness and hopefully more and more people get to know us. This year, the Wabasha...

Letter: I stand with Marty

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: After working eight years as a Detention Deputy for Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office and retiring in 2016, I can think of no other law enforcement officer I would be prouder to endorse for Sheriff than Marty Kelly. Coming into contact with the law enforcement community was an almost...

Letter: Haley gets things done

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: If you didn’t know Barb Hailey before she was elected state representative two years ago, you probably know her now. She has proven to be one of the most hard working state representatives and we are lucky to have her representing our region. Rep. Barb Haley has been of a champion...

Letter: Going to bat for Greg Schreck

Oct 25, 2018
To the editor: If you’ve seen me around town in my Twins or Cubs gear you know I’m a baseball fan. Neither of my teams is in the World Series so this November I’m going to bat for my husband, Greg Schreck, in the upcoming election. Here’s why: Greg grew up in Lake City being the ninth child in a...
