Letter to the editor: Denson will balance conservation, infrastructure

Oct 24, 2022

We are voting for Robyn Denson because we have watched her commitment and hard work for the last 5- 6 years. We have seen her dedication first hand, and have witnessed her accomplishments. Recently I hosted an event: a Meet & Greet for Robyn and Senator Emily Randall. I invited friends of different political and

Letter to the editor: Randall will protect equal rights

Oct 24, 2022

We are voting (again) for State Senator Emily Randall because we have watched her commitment and non-partisan hard work. Recently I hosted an event: a Meet & Greet for Senator Randall and Robyn Denson. I invited friends of different political and social views, all with the same goal: honest, transparent, equitable and fiscally responsible representation.

Letter to the editor: Randall’s record worthy of support

Oct 24, 2022

I am concerned about my health and safety and honestly, my pocket book, which is why I’m voting to re-elect State Senator Randall. I knew enough to thank Randall for the 75 cent reduction in Tacoma Narrows Bridge tolls (nearly $200 annually for commuters), for the reduction of insulin prices, and for her support of

Letter to the editor: Richards shows intelligence, compassion

Oct 20, 2022

If public safety, inflation, education, and employment opportunities are a concern of yours, I encourage you to vote for Adison Richards for State Representative. He has lived here all his life, and he has been working as a lawyer with the Northwest Justice Project, where he has served people who could not afford representation. He

Letter to the Editor: Denson’s energy, passion, work ethic are unmatched

Letter to the Editor: Vote for Caldier, Hutchins and common sense

Oct 18, 2022

Residents of the 26th Legislative District —those living in Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, Bremerton, the Key Peninsula, and outlying areas – as well as other Washington citizens – are facing an unprecedented time of inflationary pressure, rising interest rates, rising consumer prices, a sharp rise in violent crimes, understaffed police and sheriff’s departments for most

Letter to the editor: Young offers action and common sense

Oct 14, 2022

I enthusiastically endorse Jesse Young for Washington State Senate for two reasons: his eight years of experience as our Legislative Representative and from several in-person conversations. Jesse Young is one of the most senior representatives in Olympia with over eight years’ experience.  He has served on the several key committees including: “Children’s, Youth & Family;

Letter to the editor: Lonergan will bring experience to Pierce Co. Council

Oct 14, 2022

With only weeks to go before the Midterm elections here in Washington, Paula Lonergan continues putting the word out about where she stands for the voters of Pierce County and District 7. As a Pierce County Council member, Paula would be responsible for passing legislation, setting county policy, adopting the county’s budget, and holding government

Letter to the editor: Smiley, Kreiselmaier support liberty

Oct 14, 2022

Like many voters, I have become increasingly frustrated with the direction that D.C. progressives have been dragging our country. Inflation, crime, homelessness, declining education, growing racial division, massive national debt and everything they touch is becoming worse and worse.  Their only answers are more control, more spending and more taxes. Elections are about choices, but

Guest column: Another great Film Festival in the books

“It’s like I have ESPN or something,” a quote from the 2004 movie “Mean Girls.” Well, probably not ESPN, but if you had any ESP going on, you took yourself to the 2022 Gig Harbor Film Festival last weekend. And what a weekend it was! The festival launched on Thursday evening with a welcome chat
