Letters to the Editor
Editor, At a recent forum, Island County treasurer candidate Wanda Grone indicated that, were she required to make budget cuts, the "position" she would eliminate would be that of the foreclosure deputy. To paraphrase, as the numbers of property subject to tax foreclosure have dropped, those duties could easily be absorbed by the other staff members.

Editor, Incumbent Ana Maria Nuñez is extremely qualified to be the Island County treasurer. I have learned that she implemented more new and innovative programs and services for Island County than any treasurer before her. In the last four years she has eliminated a backlog in processing adjustments to property taxes that existed for 10 years; not a problem she created but one she fixed.
Editor, Don’t ever hesitate when it comes to using our local Whidbey Hospital emergency room. I’ve gone twice and each time I was treated fast, with respect and by caring staff. They can diagnose and stabilize you and send you on your way to a hospital better suited to treat your condition.
Editor, The members of Mardi Unit of Ryther Children’s Center League would like to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation to the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club for extending their generosity in hosting the annual dinner/auction for Mardi Unit.
Editor, State Initiative 594 is a bad idea. If I-594 were in place one year ago Jaylen Fryberg would still be dead and he would have still murdered another student and wounded four others. Neither I-594 nor the fact that the school is a “Gun Free Zone” stopped Jaylen Fryberg from murdering fellow students.
