As You See It

Democrats

To the Editor,

I am proud to be a Democrat. Our candidates demonstrate the drive of Democrats throughout the past…”How can we do the most good for the most people?”

Hillary Clinton’s Methodist background has influenced her public service as she follows this Methodist belief… “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” (John Wesley- Theologian)

As First Lady, and later as New York senator, she aggressively crossed the aisle to seek areas for bipartisan progress. She continues to make appeals to Republicans. At the final debate she said that she was “reaching out to all Americans— Democrats, Republicans, and independents—because we need everybody to help make our country what it should be.”

Democratic candidates can help her and Tim Kaine. Return Russ Feingold to the U.S. Senate! When Russ lost his 2010 re-election bid, Senator McCain said, “I have to confess I think the Senate will be a much poorer place without Russ Feingold in it.”

Elect Sarah Lloyd to the U.S. House of Representatives. Her agricultural background and progressive views will help bring balance to the House. Rural areas need more representation along with the views of women… only 84 women in a 435-member House?

Two well-qualified women are running in area Assembly Districts. Rebecca Clarke in the 26th and Nanette Bulebosh in the 27th. Their life experiences well attune them to concerns of all citizens. Like funding of our pre-K thru UW/Technical public school systems, funding of our infrastructure - especially roads - an economy with family supporting jobs, and protecting our environment.

Vote for balanced and common sense national and state representation. Vote for our great Democratic candidates!

Katsma

To the Editor,

I encourage you to re-elect State Representative Terry Katsma to the Wisconsin State Assembly. I have known Terry for 18 years and am proud to call him a friend. He is bright, professional, thoughtful, and treats everyone with respect.

Representative Terry Katsma was born and raised in Sheboygan County. He went to college to earn a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Business. He then returned to Sheboygan County to raise a family and worked at a community bank in Oostburg for 34 years.

Terry cares deeply about our community and understands the needs and challenges of local government. Prior to serving in the State Assembly, he served six years on the Village Board. He understands the importance of intergovernmental cooperation, fiscal responsibility, a safe and reliable transportation system, taking care of the neediest of the needy, and helping support our local families and businesses to be successful.

Terry is a leader in his church and serves on the Board of Managers for the Sheboygan YMCA. I have personally had the pleasure of competing with Terry on the racquetball court and to see my mild-mannered friend turn into a fearless gladiator. He brings this same grit and toughness to the State Capitol.

State Representative Terry Katsma is a passionate competitor who loves our community, and has dedicated his life to helping his family and countless others be successful. He is a man of character, he is approachable, and he cares. Though I am pleased he has a good competitor in this race and it has been a positive and respectful campaign, Terry Katsma is the more qualified candidate and I am proud to endorse him.

On November 8th I encourage you to vote for State Representative Terry Katsma.

Respectfully,

Adam Payne

Results

To the Editor,

When it comes to governing our cities, states, and federal government we need to step back from the promises and noise of day to day politics and look at the longterm results under Republican and Democrat administrations.

Look at the old industrial cities like Milwaukee, Detroit, Baltimore, and Chicago what do you see? For many decades, these cities have been governed solely by Democrat politicians with disastrous results: industry and commerce has fled to the suburbs and beyond; dependency has risen to unacceptable levels; the neighborhoods have deteriorated; the schools are subpar or failing; the crime rate and shootings have escalated to such a degree that it makes our human losses in Iraq and Afghanistan seem trivial. Poverty and despair prevail. Democrats blame their failures on madeup Republican racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia, and xenophobia. Those are the shiny objects meant to grab your attention while Obama, Clinton, and the likes of Russ Feingold lead our country into decay and insolvency. On the other hand, Republicans have shown the ability to confront the special interests that hog-tie the Democrat politicians. When Republicans apply conservative principles, budgets are balanced, pensions are funded, there is law and order, and everyone is treated fairly. Keep that in mind on November 8.

I "gasped" at the false

I "gasped" at the false accusations, misrepresentations, and deceptions listed in the letter from the Republican Party. By the way...Congress has been controlled in both the House and Senate by the Republicans. This writer needs to pay attention to why so many of his fellow Republicans are "jumping ship!"... EX-U.S. ATTORNEY LEAVES GOP, CALLING IT AN ORGANIZATION “DOMINATED BY FEAR, ANGER AND HATE” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/marcos-daniel-jimenez-donald-trump_u... A top republican donor and fundraiser...Meg Whitman endorses Hillary Clinton, calling Donald Drumpf a danger to national security http://www.mercurynews.com/politics-government/ci_30200605/meg-whitman-e... and George W.

Hopefully a new party is on the way...a 21st century party that keeps extremist interests at bay...pragmatic, compassionate, more civil, that still works to limit government size and scope while keeping a balance between state and federal responsibilities, and working to accomplish their 21st century platform through constructive collaboration and compromising to maximize success.
