Vote ‘yes’ on 3C to support our teachers and students

Dear Editor,Could this be deja-vu? No, it’s just another letter from one of the downvalley “downers” Jan Walker that sounds exactly like her letters written last year during election time.The majority of readers already know what to expect from Jan Walker and Ross Talbott, who never have anything positive to say about the Re-2 school district. The district may not have presented its needs clearly last year, but Re-2 planners have pulled themselves up by their bootstraps and are asking for our help again this year.C’mon, let’s give these hard-working teachers and students our support and vote “yes” on 3C for a new plan with integrity and foresight. After all, they’re not asking for frivolous things – just the opportunity to teach our growing population of children.It’s not much out of our pockets to be winners and not whiners.Vote “yes” on 3C.Sincerely,Mary BlichmannSiltPublic’s concerns will become Rippy’s concernsDear Editor,To the People of District 61: When I look to a political candidate, I look for someone who will represent me, not just a party or one pet issue. We should look for leaders and representatives who are strong individuals in human relationships and who understand the needs, the fears, and the values of other people. Any person can educate themselves on one particular subject and know everything there is to be known about that subject, but will fall short when faced with anything new or unknown. So, though they may work diligently towards one goal, they may not have the ability or the desire to understand the other concerns of the people.Becky Rippy has spent her adult life working with people, not just issues which sometimes get separated from people. She does care what people want or need and will always work for you. If you want someone who represent you, then I urge you all, Democrats, Independents, Republicans, to vote for Becky Rippy. After working with Becky for many years I can tell you, all of you matter to her, and all your concerns will become her concerns.Darcy CampbellSilt
