Corsicana — Questions content

To the Editor: As Bernie Goldberg says in his book “A Slobbering Love Affair” this paper prints just about anything Vicky Prater has to say whether it is correct or not, yet in your letters to the editor policy you state that slanderous statements will not be printed. But when it comes to Ms. Prater, she can say anything she likes and you do or say nothing.  

Is it because you agree with what she says and you just do not want to say it for fear of making your readers mad?  

In her rant about the power plant she make reference to them trying to do anything to cut what they would owe, yet there is no proof that they would do any such thing.  

Stop this pandering.

Road question

To the Editor: After reading the article by Janet Jacobs on the update of “the summer street projects” I don’t remember anything about the proposed widening of South 15th Street from the railroad out to I-45.  

Has this project been sidelined again?  

I have lived south if Corsicana for over 50 years and the road has always been a disgrace to our fair town.

In support of Shelton

To the Editor: I would like to take this time to ask you to vote for Darrell Shelton for Commissioner, Precinct 1. I have known this young man for a number of years and know him to be an honest, knowledgeable person who will be an asset to this position. He knows about road construction and he knows about financial responsibility. He is a fine Christian man.

Please vote, early voting is July 23 to 27, or vote July 31. Your vote does count.

Johnny Rhodes

In support of Grant

To the Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to support Jason Grant as Republican Candidate for Navarro County Commissioner Precinct 1.  

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jason for the past 13 years. As a candidate, Jason has proven his dedication and perseverance and I have witnessed these qualities continuously in Jason’s work ethic over the years. Jason’s law enforcement experience has gifted him with the ability to see all sides of any given situation without being judgmental. This skill will allow him to serve as a very public-minded commissioner with no hidden agendas.  

Those of us who choose to make our careers in public service are driven, not by money, but by our need to improve our neighbors’ lives and our community. You will not find a better example of this than Jason Grant. He has a pure, basic instinct bred in him that this ability just comes naturally to him. Jason has pledged to clean up the county, strive to bring in new businesses and continue to fight against crime and violence by supporting all of our area law enforcement agencies.

I predict that after the citizens of Navarro County see Jason in action as Precinct 1 County Commissioner, all of those who voted for him will hold their heads high, and those that didn’t will probably claim they did.

Remember early voting begins July 23.
