  • “How come every time somebody endorses David Linn for district attorney, Michael Keitz comes back and says, ‘Well, this one’s from the mountains, or I knew that person would endorse him.’ Keitz says he has big-time backers, but he’s not at liberty to say who they are. Hello, it’s time to start saying who’s backing you. David Linn is the only one qualified to be our new D.A. Second, one of those running for sheriff, Kime, says he’d donating 75 percent of his salary. I’d like to know how he’d donate any of it back, because you’d be a county employee or elected official. How are you donating your whole salary back? You have to be paid.”
  • “In Wednesday’s letters to the editor, a local rancher suggests using Bloat Guard in dealing with our local school system. I agree entirely with his analysis. I first used the product years ago when I shipped cattle from Madera from Snowflake, Ariz.”
  • “With the elections coming up, how many of these people running for office are willing to bring Madera up to standards by bringing in shopping centers so we can keep Madera peoples’ tax dollars within Madera and build up a nice city so we don’t have to continue driving to Fresno to purchase things from Target, Costco and many other stores. Just like the nice shopping center that was just put in off (State Route) 99 and Herndon (Ave.). Let’s all stick together and try to make sure that these new elected officials are going to be working for the pople and do what we ask to make Madera a better place. If we don’t ask, we won’t get it.”
