Today's Opinions

  • Newman will stand up for us

    In November, voters will elect a new solicitor. This person will be the chief prosecutor in Chester, Fairfield and Lancaster counties.

    As the son of a career police officer with more than three decades’ experience, who stood in a courtroom last year to speak at the sentencing of the man charged with killing my brother, the issues at stake in the race for solicitor hit close to home for me and my family.

  • Republicans ready to make a difference

    Next month, Lancaster County voters will cast ballots from U.S. Senate down to county and school board offices.

    Lancaster County Republicans have worked hard to ensure that Lancaster County voters have more choices than ever by helping to recruit local candidates, some for races which long went uncontested on November ballots.

  • I have a vested interest in our community

    You have heard a lot from my opponent(s). I think it’s time to set the record straight.

    My opponent says my experience consists of five trials. Here are the facts. Since 2011, I have been lead prosecutor for the Lancaster Police Department.

  • Brooks has skills needed for county school board

    I am writing in support of James Brooks, candidate for Lancaster County school board, District 1. James lives and practices three major attributes that will be demanded by this job: leadership skills, communication skills and dedication to community.

    James’ leadership is clearly demonstrated by professional activity as vice president of a major construction firm, through his membership and participation in the Indian Land Rotary Club as an officer and board member and his co-chairmanship of the Board of Zoning Appeals for Lancaster County.

  • Measure of good judge based on knowledge, integrity

    In less than two weeks, the voters of Lancaster County will be tasked with the responsibility of choosing the best person to manage a government office that, sooner or later, will affect every family in our area – the probate judge. In this election, the voters are offered two sharply contrasting candidates with regard to their levels of relative preparedness for the challenges that face them.

  • Holt: We need to do something different

    Albert Einstein is often credited with saying that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

    The voters of Lancaster County have elected the same probate judge over and over again during the past 20 years. They undoubtedly didn’t know the true results they were getting. Our probate court is ranked in the bottom third in the state.

  • Hess will bring experience to county

    John Hess is running for the Lancaster County Council District 4 seat. And I am voting for him. Washington and Columbia continue to increase taxes while decreasing services. Federal and state governments are out of control. Things must change.
    We can’t keep doing the same kind of tax-and-spend in Lancaster County either.
    County officials have to learn to control the spending of our tax dollars. The answer is not to continue increasing taxes.

  • Obama has made this election easy

    I read lots of posts as to why I should not vote for a particular Republican because he or she voted yes or no on a certain bill. They can’t tell you why they voted as they did, since all they read was a headline.

    Let’s just cut to the chase. President Barack Obama has made this election easy. If you like higher taxes, more debt, higher medical premiums, continued unemployment, more scandals and cover-ups, plus more welfare, Muslims and floods of illegals, then simply don’t vote (like in 2012) or vote Democrat.
