    Butler, Ball and Dodson will keep city taxes manageable

    To the Editor: On April 7, we have the opportunity to vote on who will be our city commissioners. As taxpaying citizens, we all have our needs, wants, likes and dislikes. There are some who WANT a large new recreation center estimated to cost some $54 million.

    Ignore Sherow’s rant; elect Butler, Ball and James

    Ignore Sherow’s rant; elect Butler, Ball and James To the Editor: Interestingly, Mr. Sherow mentions no names of candidates for City Commission that he would support in his April Fool’s Day rant. The last-minute third-grade playground name-calling of candidates I have met and

    Sherow fears diversity; put Ball, Butler on commission

    To the Editor: Jim Sherow is, as ever, an extreme left-wing partisan who supports candidates who have openly stated they don’t believe in the free market. Sherow wants nonpartisan elections, but clearly he lives in an extremely partisan bubble. Linda Morse is precinct chair

    Left-wing partisanship has been bad for Manhattan

    To the Editor: Jim Sherow’s “let’s-not-be-partisan” letter fails common sense. Remember the Manhattan Alliance for Peace and Justice (MAPJ)? Or Chris Renner’s leftist activism and K-State radio show? What about Political Neighborhood Organizaton to Stop Growth? How is the League of Women

    Sherow is wrong about Flint Hills Tea Party board

    To the Editor: Truth is something that seems to elude Mr. Sherow. Thus it is so very apropos that the former mayor and failed congressional candidate’s letter was in the April Fool’s edition of the Manhattan Mercury. The Flint Hills Tea Party does

    Sherow makes multiple innacurate statements

    To the Editor: In Mr. Sherow’s letter of Wednesday, April 1, he accused me of “Right-wing extremism, with its mean-spirited disdain for the common good.” Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion about local candidates, and I embrace the concept of vigorous debate of diverse

    Elect Allen, Bohnenblust, and Larson in USD 378

    To the Editor: I would like to endorse Shane Allen, Kyle Bohnenblust and Jared Larson for the USD 378 School Board. They will all help change USD 378 for the better. Each one of these individuals has a positive focus in everything he does. Shane is running

    Avoid liberal agendas that will divide Manhattan

    To the Editor: Who you vote for in the City Commission race boils down to whether you want unity and fairness in your commission or division and turmoil in our community. It seems obvious, judging from the forums and their personal comments, that Linda Morse

    Four positive candidates hope to serve USD 378

    To the Editor: Many thanks to The Manhattan Mercury for covering last Sunday’s Riley County USD 378 Board of Education “Candidates Forum” presented by the Manhattan/Riley County League of Women Voters. Unfortunately, with a large group of candidates and limited space for an article
