Letter: Maplewood votes

As a Maplewood Resident for 59 years and interested in Maplewood government and have attended the Citizens Forums through 3 mayors, I feel confident in voting for Diana Longrie for Mayor.  When she was mayor before, her Citizens Forums were attended by 17 to 25 people and all had their questions answered and were all listened to.  What she didn’t know, she had the City Manager attend the Forums and he knew the answers.

Letter: No more ‘disrespectful disagreement’

Since 2009, I have attended literally hundreds of Maplewood city meetings and events. Five years of city engagement and plenty of work in state politics have proven what I had always suspected. If you want to understand how our state government works, you need to study it where the rubber meets the road; at the city and county levels.

Letter: More differences than meet the eye

I agree with the Review it is very different having all six of the same gender as candidates for the three offices. However, there is a very wide difference in the leadership style of the six.I was so happy when Nora Slawik choose to be a candidate for Mayor. She has a wide experience negotiating  in a bi-partisan manner and is respected by both parties.

Letter: ‘Are good listeners’

Be sure to vote at the Primary Election, Aug. 13.  We,  as citizens of Maplewood, need to vote for the best candidates and not vote for anyone who is supported by a Union or a Political Party.  City Elections are non-partisan and Unions and Political Parties should stay out of it.  Check up on the candidates and vote for the person.

Letter: ‘Surprised and dismayed’

I was very much surprised and dismayed  to learn Will Rossbach will not be a candidate for mayor. He has done a great job and it will certainly be a loss to our city. I can understand that business has to come first. He will certainly be missed. I watched him interact with the leadership of other cities and know he was well respected.

To those of you who may have missed an opportunity to enjoy the beauty, wonder and pageantry of drumline performance, that’s a pity. It’s pure family entertainment at its best.

Letter: Time to invest in early ed

As a mother of two young children that both participated in early childhood programs, I truly believe quality early learning opportunities benefit all kids and families.
