Supports Cook’s efforts

To the Editor: Kudos to our State Rep. Byron Cook for his efforts to put the brakes on “dark money” that funds political campaigns (Corsicana Daily Sun, July 2, 2014).

Everyone has a right to know who is financing political campaigns, regardless of whether the money is donated directly to an individual candidate, a political party, or to some fund that’s labeled with a high sounding name. Hiding such donations from public view should not be tolerated in an open society.

I sincerely hope that in the next session of the Texas Legislature, Rep. Cook is successful in getting a bill moving that prevents secret campaign funding.

Border thoughts

To the Editor: Thanks for The Sun's article “Obama meets with Perry.”

Gov. Rick Perry tried to convince President Obama to meet him at the border, so Obama could see first hand what is going on with over 50,000 illegal children crossing the border alone. Obama said no, but he conceded to met Perry in Dallas at a sit down meeting with others to discuss it.  

Gov. Perry wants to deploy the National Guard to the border to have better control, and has asked Obama for more border guards. Obama doesn't think either are needed. Republicans and some Democrats say the president hasn't responded quickly and forcefully enough to the mounting crisis.

The border is out of control and that is dangerous. How can this neglect be stopped? We must let our leaders know what the public want and expect of them. They are our elected leaders. Now is the time to see some leading.
