Newspaper should not have printed Hofmann’s letter; he’s ‘out in left field’

It is not difficult to see that you are a Democratic newspaper as your support of Mr. Warner is obvious, but I see no reason for Charles Hofmann’s letter to even be printed.

Mr. Hofmann is out in left field somewhere when he accuses Mr. Harvey and his campaign of negative tactics. Mr. Harvey has not used or said anything that can be denied by his opponent and maybe, Mr. Hofmann, you should let someone else answer your phone if that simple vote for me bothers you. 

 Robo calls are made by the thousands every day. If things are so sensitive for you then maybe you should be the one to go to California.  Mr Harvey has been here 35-plus years. 

The newspaper article telling all Democrats to run down and become Republicans just to vote was the lowest campaign trick that has happened so far.

Please leave ‘California’ out of disparaging remarks about people with differing opinions

It seems one of the ways “we do things in Baker County,” is to make disparaging remarks about “California” over and over again. I’m a native of Baker City, and I have also lived and worked in California, so I think I can give an opinion about both. 

First of all, not EVERYTHING about Baker County is always GOOD. Second, not EVERYTHING about California is always BAD. Could we just leave “California” out of our negative opinion vocabulary? It is my opinion that telling people we disagree with to “go back to California,” is not one of the things about Baker County that makes it good.

Let me vote for the best candidates without the unnecessary additional politics

Why can’t I, as a non-partisan, vote for the best of both Republican and Democratic parties, in whatever seat. No additional politics involved.
