Letter: ‘Did not vote on this subject’

Last week the Review featured an article about the Maplewood City election.  Each candidate was asked to answer questions and to say what she feels qualifies her for this elected office.
Diana Longrie stated that she had been “voted one of Maplewood’s most notable women by the Maplewood Historical Society.”

Letter: ‘New absentee vote rights’

On Nov. 5, we will elect a new Mayor and two City Council Members for Maplewood. Last year a bill was passed that we would have a no excuse needed for the right to vote on absentee ballot, so you can go to City Hall and vote anytime convenient for you. No waiting in long lines, or fearing bad weather.

Letter: Maplewood votes

As a Maplewood Resident for 59 years and interested in Maplewood government and have attended the Citizens Forums through 3 mayors, I feel confident in voting for Diana Longrie for Mayor.  When she was mayor before, her Citizens Forums were attended by 17 to 25 people and all had their questions answered and were all listened to.  What she didn’t know, she had the City Manager attend the Forums and he knew the answers.

Letter: No more ‘disrespectful disagreement’

Since 2009, I have attended literally hundreds of Maplewood city meetings and events. Five years of city engagement and plenty of work in state politics have proven what I had always suspected. If you want to understand how our state government works, you need to study it where the rubber meets the road; at the city and county levels.

Letter: More differences than meet the eye

I agree with the Review it is very different having all six of the same gender as candidates for the three offices. However, there is a very wide difference in the leadership style of the six.I was so happy when Nora Slawik choose to be a candidate for Mayor. She has a wide experience negotiating  in a bi-partisan manner and is respected by both parties.

Letter: ‘Are good listeners’

Be sure to vote at the Primary Election, Aug. 13.  We,  as citizens of Maplewood, need to vote for the best candidates and not vote for anyone who is supported by a Union or a Political Party.  City Elections are non-partisan and Unions and Political Parties should stay out of it.  Check up on the candidates and vote for the person.
