Election Letters to the Editor: 10/24/2012

Our only chance

This presidential election is about one issue. Do you want intrusive government or limited government? Intrusive government is at your doorstep in the form of Obamacare. This election may be your last chance to stop this huge government invasion into your personal life. Obamacare will not provide lower cost medical care, but does require everyone purchase expensive medical insurance. Doctors will be put in the terrible position of turning away Medicare patients, because Obamacare cuts the Medicare payments to doctors too drastically.

Right now, Mitt Romney is our only chance of getting Obamacare reversed.

Qualities that matter

I am writing in support of Lynette Wolfgang for Blair Township clerk. Lynette worked as a recording secretary for us for four years. We found her to be friendly, timely, efficient and dependable — qualities that really matter.

Lynette has trained for this job, was appointed by the Blair Township Board as interim clerk and has been dedicated to serving the residents of Blair Township since that appointment.

Please consider Lynette Wolfgang on Nov. 6 to continue good service to Blair Township residents.

Maintain schools

The Traverse City Area Public Schools millage updates Central Grade School, replaces old buses and makes necessary improvements to our public schools. Over several decades, I have made gifts to churches that I don't belong to because vibrant communities of faith make us all better. I have donated to preserve land that I have never visited because I believe in maintaining our region's open spaces and rural character. We all do better when we build up the important institutions in our community.

Please, whether or not you have kids in TCAPS, support the millage to maintain healthy and productive schools.
