Letters to the Editor

American workers are tired of the lies

DEAR EDITOR: Donald Trump is bragging about his jobs record in the Midwest. So why didn’t he lift a finger when 14,000 GM workers were laid off? In 2016, Trump won big in the Mahoning Valley. Voters here believed Trump when he said he would be the “greatest jobs president that God ever ...

Christina Hagan is ‘right Hagan’

DEAR EDITOR: Tim Ryan is obviously desperate to stay in Congress, and it appears he is willing to go to low depths to accomplish it. Take the recent ad he created with state Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan, in which residents of the 13th District were instructed not to vote for the “wrong ...

Disability advocates compare candidates

DEAR EDITOR: The mission of Disability Rights Ohio (DRO) is to advocate for the human, civil and legal rights of people with disabilities in Ohio. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, the soul of our work is rooted in empowering Ohioans with disabilities to make the best choices for ...

Powerful words can create support

DEAR EDITOR: We hear the speeches, and we often see the attendees clap and cheer. So do those words and statements really work? Do they bring support? Words and statements such as: “Today I am at the head of the strongest Army in the world, the most gigantic Air Force and of a proud ...

How Trump failed with coronavirus

DEAR EDITOR: So, as we watch maskless Donald Trump brag that he was blessed to have contracted COVID-19 and that he’s found a cure for it, let’s look at some facts. The therapeutic drug the president was prescribed, antibody Regeneron, has shown even more promise as a prophylaxis to ...

What will happen if Biden is elected?

DEAR EDITOR: A Joe Biden administration will be boring! Love or hate Donald Trump, reporters always have something to report, and if they don’t, they could always make up fake news. When Biden does emerge from his basement to actually take two minutes of questions, he is asked such ...

Local debate failed to address abortion

DEAR EDITOR: The televised and live-streamed debate between our three candidates vying for the congressional seat was very well organized — much better than the presidential debate. Asking the questions were mainly local reporters. COVID-19, quality health care, college education, ...

Hagan impressive in congressional debate

DEAR EDITOR: I watched the 13th District Congressional debate the other night, involving Christina Hagan and Tim Ryan. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Hagan, being a first-time candidate in a congressional race. Simply put, I was extremely impressed. She had a solid grasp of the issues ...

JP Morgan represents best choice for judge

DEAR EDITOR: I have been practicing law in the Mahoning County Court No. 3 in Sebring for nearly 40 years. Three judges of that court have been removed from office for criminal activity and another due to his bailiff’s criminal conduct. All were appointed by the ruling Democratic Party ...
