We need Linthicum as
our state senator
Letter to editor of Herald and
News by Lisa Johnson, Klamath Falls 10/16/16
I first met Dennis Linthicum
when he was a county commissioner and I went to his office
to discuss my concerns with our county.
I found his values and mine ran
parallel as we were both strict constitutional
conservatives. I was very confident in the direction of his
leadership for this county and trusted the direction he
wanted to see this county go.
I believe in his values and he
would fight without compromise with the leadership that has
taken over the government in Salem. I don't want a
"pragmatic" approach as I want a representative who will
stand up for my values — win or lose.I want my
representative to fight against the simple "solution" of
constantly going to the taxpayers for more and more money.
I want someone who loves our
state and federal constitutions and is willing to fight to
uphold them. The buzzword in government is "compromise" and
that is the reason we have been dragged into the fiscal mess
we are in now.
We truly need a man of Mr.
Linthicum's character who has a record of working for this
county and the people here and not bound to any special
interest groups that seem to want to pull this rural
district to a more tax-and-spend arena.
I want a representative who
will fight to reduce my tax burden in this state and fight,
win or lose to get this state back to a more fiscally
conservative, live-within-our means budget.
We are bankrupting our state
and our children's future with all the "pork barrel
spending" programs that get carried through Salem.
I thoroughly believe that Mr.
Linthicum will be the representative that will fight for all
of us and be a representative we all can be proud to
support. I encourage your vote for Dennis Linthicum for
