Taylor: Local leaders support Bellus for Gilbert Public Schools board
Posted: October 21, 2014

As a member of the Gilbert Town Council, I join with other current and former elected officials who fully endorse Ron Bellus for the Gilbert School Board. We understand the importance of building relationships when working with one another in the governing process. Those relationships aren’t created overnight; it takes time to build trust and mutual respect.

Letter: Prop. 303 gives terminally ill a fighting chance
Posted: October 21, 2014

A good friend has a terminal illness but you can do something at no cost that could very well cure him. There are drugs in development that have been proven to be safe for his condition, but have not yet finished the final procedures the FDA requires. The FDA places these drugs out of reach of dying patients, drugs that could save their lives. Apparently it’s OK to die, but not for a dying man to risk a drug reaction!

Endorsement of Ducey does not speak for all veterans
Posted: October 19, 2014

I wish to rebut Mr. Romley’s plea to elect Doug Ducey for governor. (East Valley Tribune, Oct. 12). He does not speak for me and many other veterans.

Letter: Make sure to vote the ‘clowns’ off Gilbert school board
Posted: October 15, 2014

While I am a relative newcomer to Gilbert area politics, I am a veteran of Valley politics. What I have witnessed the last two years regarding the Gilbert School Board is absolutely appalling. Today, Oct. 4, 2014, I read the opinion of a Ms. Van De Graff who basically is asking us to vote for two candidates that would allow the circus to stay in town. There is so much to comment on in her opinion, but mandatory word limits on letters will not allow.

Letter: DuVal gets this Republican’s vote for governor
Posted: October 14, 2014

The next month promises to bring out lots of mud, baseless accusations and partisan attacks as we move toward the Nov. 4 election. Despite the polls, the campaign for governor should even not be close.

Local leaders support Reed Carr for Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board
Posted: October 08, 2014

We support Reed Carr for Gilbert Public School Board! Reed has a well-deserved reputation for listening to others while seeking balanced, thoughtful, and conservative decisions. A father of four GPS students, he greatly cares about education and has been involved in our schools. He also provides a strong background and understanding of business. We are confident that he will combine skills of accountability and oversight with the need to ensure that GPS employees have our community’s appreciation and support.

Letter: Shrivastava well-suited for Tempe Union High School District board
Posted: October 07, 2014

Residents in the Tempe Union High School District earnestly await every two years to see who’ll run for the governing board. This year, we have the refreshing entry of Veekas Shrivastava, with an astonishing grasp of what a 21st-century education must be in a district that achieves and expects excellence. With fierce faith in what public education can accomplish with vision and resources, Shrivastava has magnetism, an ear to listen and a robust appreciation that his own business successes can be traced back to his education in the Kyrene schools, McClintock High School where he was active in debate, then Arizona State University.

Letter: Ducey is candidate we can trust
Posted: October 05, 2014

I was given the opportunity to speak to Mr. Doug Ducey on Sunday, Sept. 28, as one of the candidates for governor. I have shied away from politics for some time now as I have been unimpressed with many of the candidates and just voting for the least harmful to our economy and way of life. I see Mr. Ducey much differently and will give him my full support. I am impressed by Mr. Ducey’s years of experience in business and as state treasurer. After my conversation and listening to him talk to others, I find him to be an extremely credible person.

Letter: One Code Pink veteran has lengthy résumé of service
Posted: October 03, 2014

To the person venting about “Code Pink nimrods acting like 12-year-olds” (Sept. 21, 2014), one of those people protesting the Senate Armed Services hearings was retired U.S. Army Col. Ann Wright. She has both a master’s and a law degree from the University of Arkansas, a master’s degree in national security affairs from the U.S. Naval War College and is U.S. Army airborne-qualified.
