letters to the editor
Vendor clarifies details
Ms. Stacey Davidson wrote a letter to the editor published in another newspaper this past weekend saying, amongst other things, our company, “Johnson & Williamson” was from “outside of our county.” It seemed important to clarify our company, Johnson & Williamson Insurance, LLC has resided in Montgomery County and Crawfordsville for 139 years.
Phenomenal voter turnout
In one of our local daily papers, it was reported today that as of the close of the day on Tuesday, there have been 1720 early votes cast (approximately 7% of registered voters).
Reader endorses Ron Dickerson
Ron is a proven leader by making tough, but sound business decisions during tough economic times in the steel industry all while maintaining his commitment to the community needs of Montgomery County.
Reader choses candidate based on specific qualities
Before the 2016 election season started and candidates were named, I made a list of qualities I wanted in a candidate.
Reader supports Dickerson
I confidently recommend Ron Dickerson for the position of At-Large position on the County Council. In my experience working with Ron at Nucor Steel, I found he is a man of great integrity and a dedicated leader.
From reader who has worked with Dickerson
Usually I do not write comments on candidates running for office, but there have been some about Ron Dickerson that I feel have been made by people who could not know him.
Reader see Dickerson as good decision maker
I worked with Ron Dickerson for over 25 years. During that time Ron rose through the company by being a good leader that was able to make good decisions.
Fulwider voices his support
I feel fortunate to have served Montgomery County for the last eleven years, first as a County Councilman, and currently as County Commissioner. I have worked very hard with many other elected and appointed officials in local government units to try to make our County a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
Bane writes in support of Frey
It has been my honor and privilege to serve as County Commissioner. As a small business owner, it was never my plan to run for elected office. But when I began to see how the actions and sometimes inactions of County government affected my business and others like mine, I chose to become involved and try to help our government serve its citizens better.
Rhoads’ reasons for Dickerson support
I am a farmer and a businessman who supports Ron Dickerson for County Council.
Bannons support Dickerson for Council
“All things rise and fall on leadership.” It is our privilege to endorse Ron Dickerson for Montgomery County Council.
Reader’s personal view on candidates
In a Presidential election year, it is easy to overlook the elections of our county officials. What we shouldn’t overlook, however, is that the people having the most impact on our daily lives and the lives of our children will be those county officials. Although I do not personally know three of the candidates running for election as County Councilmen, there are three candidates that I do know and respect.
Information on election ads
To the Editor,
Fiscal responsibility and keeping priorities straight. What do they mean on a “Vote for me” ad? Using these terms as a qualification for County Commissioner or County Council, I feel is meaningless.
Mills voices his support for Pickerill, others
I can always tell its spring when people start mowing yards, farmers get in their fields, and election editorials come out in the paper. So, before I go out to get started planting, I want to throw a thought into the column. One thing I’ve noticed, this year and years past, is that candidates are sometimes grouped together under one philosophy.
Reader’s view on what is at stake
I find much of the recent rhetoric concerning the Montgomery County primary election campaign to be a cause for heartburn and even a bit nauseating at times. To read the hyperbole put forth by the so called progressive wing of the Republican party might lead one to think that if these men are elected we will regain the Paradise that was lost.
