Letters

  • Personal attacks only drive a wedge into a community

    To the Editor: A recent letter criticized the Manhattan mayor for appointing “mean-spirited” “extremists” to the Social Services Board and directly accused me of being one of those “mean-spirited” “extremist” appointments. I have never visited with the author of that .

  • Candidate’s absence from forum is pertinent

    To the Editor: The patrons of USD 378 have the right to know what a candidate for school board believes. A sitting member candidate not showing up for a forum should speak volumes to voters..

  • James, Ball and Butler will control city spending

    To the Editor: On Tuesday, we need to elect three city commissioners. Who is qualified for the job? I found out the basic job of the City Commission is to prioritize the spending of our tax dollars; pay down city .

  • Ball, Butler and James are an ‘awesome trio’

    To the Editor: Wynn Butler is good for Manhattan. He seeks to get the best value out of our city assets so we can have more dollars for other priorities. For example, Butler is interested in the repurposing of city .

  • 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 .

  • 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 .

  • 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. .

  • 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 .

  • 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 .

  • League of Women Voters encourages citizens to vote

    To the Editor: The League of Women Voters of Manhattan/Riley County would like to remind all registered voters that it is time to vote! Make your choices for our local leaders — Manhattan’s City Commission and the USD 383 Board .

  • 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 .

  • 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 .
