Letters To The Editor

Sorry for America

To the editor: With the immigration crisis and this $2.5 trillion infrastructure plan and tax bill, I am hearing the same rhetoric from politicians and media. We are told we should welcome and help everyone that comes to this country illegally and yet the people that come here legally have ...

A living wage will pay for itself

To the editor: We simply can not tolerate people dying in the streets. Therefore, the employers in any given community must pay wages commensurate with the local ( Repeat: local) Cost of Living -- or -- be taxed to provide Social Services sufficient to forestall such dying. It is likely ...

Guest commentary: The fight to save Florida’s Medical Marijuana Program

In 2016, Florida voters overwhelmingly expressed their desire for a safe and accessible medical marijuana program, and I am fighting to preserve the medical nature of the program that voters demanded. What we have now is a recreational drug program masquerading as a medical marijuana program, ...

Guest commentary: You betcha’

Questions we frequently get: “What does it mean when Women For a Better Lee says it is ‘fiercely nonpartisan’?”, closely followed by: “Don’t you have to be a part of an organized political party to succeed at electing women?” First, what does “nonpartisan” mean for us? ...

Immigration policy fraught with problems

To the editor: It is difficult to lose an election especially when you feel it is so important for this country but it also verifies your beliefs. Although Biden is not receiving the castigation that Trump received there is much news if you look about the immigration crisis. Trump was beat ...

Immigration policy is failing American spouses

To the editor: I am a U.S. citizen struggling to overcome immigration issues for my spouse, the highest priority for legal immigration. I am extremely frustrated that Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives blocked a vote on amendments to the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm ...
