Letters to the Editor

Randy Smith deserves to keep engineer seat

DEAR EDITOR: I had the opportunity to work for the Trumbull County engineer’s office and previously served as a Vernon Township trustee. I have known Engineer Smith through much of his career. He truly cares about this community and works hard to make it a better place to live and work. ...

Support David DeChristofaro for county engineer

DEAR EDITOR: As a former employee of the Trumbull County engineer’s office who worked with both Randy Smith and David DeChristofaro, I am writing to confirm that there is vast contrast between these two candidates, their management style and, in turn, their effectiveness as engineer. I have ...

Dan Polivka should keep commissioner seat

DEAR EDITOR: I am writing to ask for your vote for Trumbull County Commissioner Dan Polivka. I have known Dan for over 30 years and have witnessed the hard work and dedication he has put into making Trumbull County a better place to live. To help the county with the loss of General Motors ...

David DeChristofaro showed compassion for worker

DEAR EDITOR: My mother, Nancy Guerini, was hired by former Trumbull County Engineer David DeChristofaro and shortly thereafter was diagnosed with breast cancer. David was empathetic and responded with great compassion. She was encouraged during this difficult time knowing she had a boss and ...

Commissioners should call for county water study

DEAR EDITOR: There has been much written in the news recently about water rates charged by the city of Girard to users in Liberty Township; and more recently there has been much written regarding leverage that the city of Niles wants to exert on water users in Howland, Vienna and Weathersfield ...

West Farmington mayor supports Randy Smith for Trumbull engineer

DEAR EDITOR: It should do everyone’s heart good that Southington students are involved and that they organized and provided a valuable service to we the voters. I have been mayor of West Farmington village for five years. The village has been part of a very large Ohio EPA-funded water ...

Liberty trustees want Randy Smith to be re-elected

DEAR EDITOR: Speaking for all three Liberty Township trustees, we want to acknowledge the assistance the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office, led by Randy Smith, has provided us, including, at no charge to the township, a report covering 61 miles of roadway, a grading of pavement condition, ...

US must be leader in nuclear de-escalation

DEAR EDITOR: Your recent editorial agreeing to putting nuclear (atomic) war heads on rockets loaded on U.S. ships in foreign waters as a deterrent to war is troubling. This action is tantamount to bullying — a “bully” with a big stick. We all know the devastation as a result of atomic ...

Impeachment process disrespected Donald Trump

DEAR EDITOR: Public school systems have failed a whole generation of students. Seeing that the millennial generation are for socialism is an indication that the teachers have not done their job teaching students what America is about: patriotism, civics, American history, government, ...

Tulsi Gabbard deserves a chance to be heard

DEAR EDITOR: Take heed everyone, Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg already know what’s best for us — right down to the amount of pop we are allowed to drink. And yes, that’s a communist way of life. Why don’t we hear from Tulsi Gabbard at all? She has a different interpretation of ...

Why is socialism seen as wrong or bad?

DEAR EDITOR: So it is now open. The Democratic establishment is yet again set to do all it can to stop Bernie Sanders. I’ve heard people talk about the younger generation in such negative terms for supporting Sanders. How the younger generation is bad at working real jobs, or how they have ...

Sound off!

Warren leaders continue to kowtow to a Warren businessman granting him carte blanche on closing Dana Street. The administration and city council continue to ignore residents’ requests to reopen Dana Street, closed since 2016. The closure is a nuisance and safety issue to residents, and it has ...

The contrasting tales of two San Francisco 49ers

DEAR EDITOR: Maybe you could say it’s a tale of two 49ers. On one hand, there is former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 took a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustice and his action spread across the league. President Trump reacted by ...

Today’s Caesar and Brutus reside in D.C.

DEAR EDITOR: A flip of the coin may hold our destiny. The Roman Empire lasted 500 years before it crumbled. If we are relying on power of weapons to carry us, then we have become shallower than imagined. At one time, the Roman Empire had the greatest fighting force on earth. The ...

Republican opponents must ‘put up or shut up’

DEAR EDITOR: “Truth to power” is a phrase that immediately came to mind when Rep. Tim Ryan got up and walked out of Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address. Misinformation, distortion of the truth and out and out lies in the speech would have had me walking out in protest also. Mr. ...

Let the healing begin in a respectful nation

DEAR EDITOR: I feel compelled to write this for members of all political parties to read. To show disrespect to a president, any president, is to show disrespect to the presidential office of this country for which we all profess our love. I would like to add that once elected, a ...

Our country needs to be rid of President Trump

DEAR EDITOR: Mothers, get your sons and daughters ready for battle because it’s pretty much guaranteed that this president is going to start a war. Will it be Iran or will it be North Korea? Look for increased terrorist attacks against the U.S. Republicans who supported Trump during ...

Sound off!

It’s a shame many Howland residents don’t care about the appearance of their homes or property. Look at debris; litter; signs that stay up after elections or garage sales; automobiles parked on streets overnight; trash cans in full sight; and residences that become commercial properties. ...

Niles must repeal annexation plan

DEAR EDITOR: This is regarding the Trumbull County commissioners’ coordination of an Economic Development Summit recently. The presentations by several representatives from organizations working for the good of the area were well done and very encouraging. It is unfortunate that Niles ...

Warren blessed with Robins, benefactors

DEAR EDITOR: I just wanted to add my praise to the group of people who attended the gala re-opening of the Robins Theatre in downtown Warren. It was truly a night to remember. Coverage by the Tribune Chronicle was on target, and I commend Andy Gray for his excellent writeup — although I ...
