Herald and News letter to the editor by
Laura and Loren Little,
We keep reading all
this sanctimonious whining about how the Whitsetts stole the
election and Todd Kepple and Al Switzer are going to save
the day. So these two heroes are Republicans dressing up as
Democrats in order to run for state senator and state
representative, respectively. Our very own duplicitous
political cross dressers.
I understand Todd
Kepple is a moderate and that must be true as it seems the

The far left loves a
moderate Republican. Moderate Republicans start in the
center and end up left when they experience any pressure. We
need someone who holds conservative values and will stand up

He is very
intelligent, articulate and has the strength of character to
hold his own in a legislative body that is predominately far
Al Switzer’s signs say
he is the “principled conservative.” Maybe, but he lacks the
political courage to use these traits. Switzer was Klamath
County Commissioner just before all the financial woes for

time to stop the budgetary bleeding during his tenure, but
failed to do so. He didn’t have the political courage to say
“no” to unnecessary programs.
commissioner when the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement
and dam removal became an issue. Again, Switzer didn’t have
the political courage to stand for or against it. Switzer
has proved more than once that he cannot make the hard
choice. Let’s give the opportunity to someone who can.
We are going to cast
our vote for Dennis Linthicum and Werner Reschke.
