Letters to the Editor

Report facts, not historical myths

DEAR EDITOR: Our frequent correspondent from New Middletown is at it again, spreading misinformation. I wish her grasp of historical facts was as strong as her obviously sincere religious faith. In her Nov. 8 letter, the writer claimed, “Columbus spread Christianity all over the ...

An analysis of our 2020 general election

DEAR EDITOR: What happened in the 2020 election? Who actually won? Will America become a socialist country or continue to be a capitalistic constitutional republic? The next 40 to 50 days will make this determination. The bottom line in determining who will become president is votes. As of ...

E. Liverpool hospital should pay its heroes

DEAR EDITOR: One of the most monumental figures in my life is my Auntie Mar. I was the youngest of five and was being raised by a single mother. Auntie Mar was a superhero to me, helping buy school clothes for five kids, sending cards for every holiday and taking us to the movies. My ...

Voters should oversee town hall debates

DEAR EDITOR: This letter is concerning the process of the debates. I think the next presidential debates should be town halls put on by the people and not the dumb media. The national media is all Democrats, which is not right. They only want to know about what they want to know. Do they ...

Continue to support energy, manufacturing

DEAR EDITOR: Manufacturing and construction — industries that not only built the Valley, but built up America — had a substantial impact on the election. U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan rightly acknowledged this during his campaign, and he has championed across the Valley, the importance of ...

What really happened at GM-Lordstown

DEAR EDITOR: What really was responsible for closing of the very important GM-Lordstown plant? I’m an outsider. I never worked at General Motors, so I’m going to attempt to answer based on what I’ve seen in our nation the last several years. I believe the company and local union ...

Portman faking bi-partisanship

DEAR EDITOR: It must be that time again. Rob Portman is worried about his re-election, so he’s pretending to be bipartisan once more, after four years of kowtowing to Donald Trump’s every single whim. Portman voted for Betsy DeVos as secretary of education. He voted for Alexander ...

Mahoning Valley needs 2-party system

DEAR EDITOR: I was very pleased to read The Vindicator editorial Nov. 6 titled, “Local 2-party political system is long overdue.” I think it had wonderfully apt observations of our changing political landscape. I grew up in a community just outside of Pittsburgh, which was as staunchly ...

Tim Ryan’s close call could be his last

DEAR EDITOR: Tim Ryan managed to get re-elected for a 10th two-year term. This victory by (7.5 percent) was his narrowest. He did not carry his home county of Trumbull. He lost three of the five counties in his district. Surprisingly, President Trump carried Trumbull and Mahoning counties. ...

Americans must think critically on COVID-19

DEAR EDITOR: Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, this president has deceived us, downplayed the threat and disparaged science and experts to convey his alternative, erroneous facts that align with his political agenda. Early in his term, officials charged with pandemic preparedness were ...
