LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Phony veterans set a poor example

  • Apr 23, 2014 at 2:00PM

Editor, In regard to your article which featured a “51 year-old Vietnam Vet, which would have made him 12 when the war ended in 1975, as a disabled combat Vietnam veteran myself I find it very offensive that people like this gentleman sit on corners and begs rather than stepping up to the plate and taking care of himself and his family.

EDITORIAL | Board creation was the right, ethical choice

  • Apr 22, 2014 at 4:00PM

The right decision isn’t always clear. The road can be fogged with circumstance and variables that make things seem more complicated, or more simple, than they really are. That’s why the Langley City Council’s vote to reinstate a standing ethics board earlier this month was so important. City leaders such as the mayor, who oversees employees at City Hall, should not be tasked with vetting claims of improper or dishonest action against himself or his staff. That job is best left to a third-party group not involved in the daily affairs of Langley government.
