    Letters to the Editor, May 20

    Our 26th District Legislators, (Jan) Angel, (Jesse) Young and (Michelle) Caldier, are taking a “sit on our hands” approach to solving Washington’s budget challenges. They are content to rely on a rise in tax collection due to a projected rise in economic activity. This is not...

    I would like to see a larger segment of the payoff for the Narrows Bridge come out of the Department of Defense’s budget. For a state highway of such national significance, we could use some of our tax dollars right here at home.

    Thank you, Larry Seaquist, for your guest column on Narrows Bridge tolling. You brought together a history that I had not quite realized, that this highway project is the only one in our state being financed 100 percent by its users, US.

    Ms. Elliott's recent letter (Gateway, April 8) states the courts should decide the validly of the referendum against the $230 million new administration building. The bigger question is can the issue get a fair trial in Pierce County Courts. Pierce County has already sued the citizen that filed ...

    I am an 88-year-old senior citizen who crosses the Narrows Bridge daily to visit my husband who is living in an adult family care home in Tacoma.

    Our new County Councilman for the 7th District, Derek Young, recently wrote a newspaper article entitled “Lawsuit isn’t easy choice, but it is right” (The News Tribune, March 8). Sorry, Mr. Young. But you’re wrong and the sad thing is you don’t even know it.

    I am disturbed by the report (Gateway, March 19) that the Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Club is going to be without a home. It seems they have to leave Skansie Park and would like to temporarily put their boats next to the Eddon Boat Shop but Eddon doesn't want them there. Boat Shop president Guy Hoppen...

    In raising the specter of a property tax increase in her letter (Gateway, March 4), Jeni Woock might have also mentioned Gig Harbor's intent to raise utility rates this year. The recent history of these rates indicates a penchant by the city to favor revenue increases rather than expenditure control...

    Did you read the “Taxes need only normal vote, lieutenant governor rules” article in the March 3 edition of the The News Tribune?

    Letters to the Editor, Feb. 25

    We've enjoyed living and raising children here in Gig Harbor for 15 years. It's a wonderful community: nice people, picturesque harbor, good schools. We couldn't be happier. One of our criteria when buying a home was finding a place close to downtown so that we could walk to businesses and restaurants...
