  • Column: Graham seeks your vote in runoff

    Iam Terry Graham and I am running for Lancaster County Council District 1.  
    I would like to thank all the voters who voted in the primary on June 14.
    I received 46.1 percent of the vote, and the second place candidate received 22.42 percent. My support was broad-based, from both new and old residents. However, because I did not reach the 50 percent plus one threshold, there must be a runoff on June 28.

  • Column: Blackmon touts his experience, ideas

    In running for the Lancaster County Auditor’s Office, I have greatly appreciated the warm hospitality shown by so many and appreciate their concerns for a modernized auditor’s office, which truly puts taxpayers first. My background of success at managing operations for a large and growing construction company, senior management roles in the state Department of Revenue and record of community service has given me the ability to manage the auditor’s office, while bringing needed reforms and planning for future growth.

  • Letter: Neighbor supports Graham in District 1 race

    After a close race for the Lancaster County Council seat in District 1, I’d like to express my support for Terry Graham.  
    As a neighbor and businessman in my community, I have been very impressed by the integrity and authenticity of this man. He’s the real deal!  
    With so many challenges facing the county due to the explosive growth in the Panhandle, our County Council is in need of leadership. This council seat must have a leader who is willing to work with other members to address the issues and provide solutions.  

  • Letter: Hunter Wallace deserves promotion

    The runoff election for county auditor is Tuesday, June 28, and the citizens of Lancaster County should be thankful that someone like Susan Hunter Wallace is one of the final two candidates.
    Her experience as deputy auditor for the past six years of her career with the county will allow her to transition into the auditor’s job with ease, knowledge and experience.
    Please consider giving Susan Hunter Wallace the promotion she has worked for and deserves.

  • Letter: Murphy supports Blackmon in auditor’s runoff

    I would like to encourage everyone to please get out and vote in the primary runoff election for the county auditor’s race on Tuesday, June 28.

  • Column: The world I grew up in is long gone

    What is truth? It seems a simple question, and yet truth is the elusive puff of smoke everyone is seeking through layers of rhetoric and excuses.
    Why is there no beacon of truth anymore? Once we thought that electing good, honest leaders and trusting them assured a great society, and justice would be served by a Supreme Court if all other courts in the land failed. But now we see judges appointed based more on their political leanings than their interpretations of the law, and those good, honest leaders seem to be out of touch with their constituents.

  • Column: My friend needs Mulvaney to try again on Medicare fight

    I am writing about a problem involving Sandra Knight Howard, who now lives in Winnsboro.
    Sandra grew up in Lancaster and attended schools here until her marriage. She still has two brothers in Lancaster.
    Many Lancastrians know of her brother Richard Knight and his many helpful deeds with the Red Cross and other local organizations. Sandra’s other brother, Carl, works at the local courthouse as court bailiff. Sandra loves Lancaster and visits here often.

  • Letter: Backing Hunter Wallace in runoff for auditor

    Cheryl Morgan is retiring as auditor for Lancaster County. I would like to thank her for her many years of service in that capacity. She served long and well and has certainly earned her time of retirement.
    It is a comfort to know that Susan Hunter Wallace is running for the position of auditor. She has been a county employee for the past 14 years and has served in the auditor’s office the last six years as deputy auditor. I feel that she is well qualified and will oversee this position in an efficient and respectful manner if elected.
