STILLWATER, Okla. — Editor’s note: The Stillwater News Press will accept letters to the editor endorsing candidates through March 24. Letters should focus on candidates or issues.
To the editor:
I endorse Cody Scott to remain the councilman for City Council Seat 4. April 1 is the general election. Early voting is March 27, and March 28 at the Election Office. Only the five members of the City Council have the authority to make enforceable laws the rest of us live under.
Residents seem to feel councilors are out of touch with the people. Councilmen seem to forget the residents are of the utmost importance in a city. Without the residents there’d be no City Council. When Councilmen got out of touch with the residents, the residents had to rise up and show their strength as in Nov. 6 election.
Council members agreed with each other 5 to 0, that the tax proposals were “good for the city.” and put it to a vote. They forgot to talk to people and find out what people wanted. It was no new taxes.
Voters showed their authority and that’s how it should be. The Council went into shock, but they learned a good lesson. It’s time again to vote.
Vote for the candidate you feel is down-to-earth, and will talk with you and listen to what you say. A good turnout of voters will show who the people feel will do the best job of representing them.
I will vote for Cody Scott.
Praise for Glover’s
area sports coverage
To the editor:
This is just a letter to give praise on his coverage of local sports activities and especially his following Glencoe boys to the Class A state championship with pictures and write-ups.
Andrew Glover has to be complimented not only for our coverage but at the other schools that he covered. I heard and it was commented about his presence and the coverage we had been getting in your paper. Of course, we were the subject of more coverage because of our trip to the championship game and would be expected for any school in the same scenario. I know other sports writers were involved in some coverage also, but just wanted Andrew to get some good recognition for his work in our coverage.
