Contemplative manner

Whitman County Commissioner Michael Largent, a lifetime resident of the county, has the experience that is crucial for our county to continue to be a great place to live. Mike is accessible and willing to listen and work through issues important to...

 

Disappoints

Gordon Forgey, in contrast to your usual pertinent and level-headed editorials, your "Who Needs the Russians?" (Oct. 25, 2018), disappoints. You equate the confusion of voters as to whether or not to add a fifty-cent postage stamp on their ballot...

 

Two wins

A vote for Rob Rembert will accomplish two good things for the citizens of Whitman County. It will allow John Hart to retain his position as Colfax’s municipal court judge, a role for which he is eminently well-equipped. It will help ensure that...

 

Blank vote

After meeting with county commissioners on 22 Oct. it became apparent that Mike Largent doesn't care about the conditions in our small western county communities. He states that county government doesn't have a responsibility to enforce county...

 

Kirk Suess letter

It may not surprise you to note that none of the comments attributed to me by Kirk Suess in his letter to the editor are accurate nor reflect my views. Fortunately, there is a recording of Mr. Suess' recent presentation to the Whitman County Board...

 

Why Lisa Brown?

I urge you to vote for Lisa Brown. Lisa deserves your support for many reasons, certainly including her record of working across the aisle to get things accomplished. Here are my top three reasons. Healthcare: Lisa Brown voted to expand healthcare...

 

About time

I just have to comment on the person that stated it was their right to bring a dog into a grocery store (letter Oct. 11). Actually, it is against the law unless it is a trained service dog. Thank you to the grocery store that said no. It is about...

 

Fantastic job

We have all heard how some have the personality to do a good job. John Hart has the personality to do a good job and be fair. Whitman County District Court needs more than a judge with personality. The fact that he is endorsed by current Judge to...

 

Careful consideration

I have worked for Whitman County District Court for the past two years as court clerk, but served as the court administrator for the Colfax Municipal Court for 17 years. It is there where I first had the pleasure to meet and work with Judge John...

 

Real results

I think one could say that I am a Tom Foley fan, big time. Here was a man that was able to work with both sides of the aisle and get tangible results that benefitted all residents of the fifth district and beyond. He along with Bob Dole were able to...

 

Experience

Rob Rembert is hometown grown in the Palouse. His family goes back 129 years when his ancestors arrived in 1889. He has 16 years devoted to community service in the Palouse and 22 years of experience in a local general law practice. While those are n...

 

Down-to-Earth

My husband, Ross, and I have had the pleasure of calling Rob Rembert and his wife, Jeannine, our friends. When Rob announced he was running for Whitman County District Court Judge, I did not hesitate to support him as I know his character and...

 

This is why

I support Robert Rembert for Whitman County District Court Judge and this is why. Rob’s integrity, intelligence, and fairness are unmatched. I have had the privilege of working with Rob for over 20 years. During that time, I have had the...

 

Observations

Having served in the Washington State Legislature with both Cathy McMorris-Rogers and Lisa Brown for eight years, I would like to share some observations. First, they share many good qualities. They are both intelligent and articulate, they both...

 

Quality

Two Pullman lawyers are running for Whitman County District Court Judge. John Hart, a public defender and part-time Municipal Court Judge in Colfax, and Rob Rembert, who’s been practicing law here since 1996. John Hart may have more time on the...

 

Yes for District No. 11

On November 6th the voters of Fire District #11, which is the rural area around Colfax and Albion and the communities of Diamond and Steptoe, will be asked to raise the levy lid. The commissioners have not asked for a special levy since 1991 and the...

 

Pay now or later

Last week’s Gazette provided an interesting juxtaposition of ideas. Page 8A’s editorial by Gordon Forgey, “12 years left,” faced page 9A’s column, “Carbon Fee Hurts Business and Families,” by Don Brunell. The editorial depicted...

 

Crucial experience

I have known Michael Largent for 15 plus years, dating back to before he first ran for county commissioner. The job was demanding and had a pretty steep learning curve as he expressed to me. I don't think it's time to remove someone from office that...

 

Impressive credentials

When I send in my ballot early next month, I will be pleased to vote for Sandy Jamison for Whitman County Auditor. She will bring impressive credentials to the job. She's a CPA with a lot of fiscal management experience–as a director of finance...

 

Best steward

Sandy Jamison is the most qualified candidate to serve as Whitman County Auditor. Jamison earned her MBA and also is a CPA with over 30 years of accounting, management and auditing experience. In addition to acting as the financial manager for her...

 

Clock is ticking

So many issues clamoring for attention as we prepare to vote for town, county, state and national leaders. For me, it’s come down to the planet’s future, or lack thereof. I’m not going to consider any candidate or party that denies climate chan...

 

Unintended

There has been a lot of discussion revolving around law lately: the Supreme Court/Kavanaugh debacle, assaults on the rule of law, concerns about law enforcement (profiling, militarization, use of deadly force, etc.), as well as the ongoing...

 

She said, he said

SHE SAID that the most hurtful part of the sexual assault was the sound of the laughter of the two young men assaulting her. HE SAID he didn't do it, but was not willing to talk with investigators. He claimed that she was a part of a conspiracy to...

 

Mitigating effects

I applaud Publisher Gordon Forgey for his editorial “Climate refugees.” In it he describes a phenomenon – the flood of refugees into our country from climate change – as likely to be “slower in coming,” yet longer-lasting than Dust Bowl...

 

Just a puppet

Let’s just put aside the juvenile name calling by Cathy McMorris Rodgers and VP Mike Pence of Lisa Brown as Liberal, for the moment. What has Cathy McMorris Rodgers done that is consistent with Conservative Republican values? As far as I know,...
