Letter: City's involvement in library project has been minimal
In response to the story recognizing the three outgoing county commissioners, I could not help but see the interest in pushing the library project to be a city project. While this may be a worthy project, it is viewed differently by many citizens of the county and has always been,...

Letter: Oberloh, Short both deserve support
We were happy to read the Worthington Globe endorsement of Al Oberloh. They chose Al because of his independent voice, which is so needed in St. Paul. We couldn't agree more. We have just met Al this year, but have read of his work in Worthington for years. We find him to be a very...

Letter: Oberloh would follow own path, not others'
Unfortunately, last year's Citizens United decision by the U.S. Supreme Court opened the floodgates for campaign spending. The amount being expended during this election cycle borders on the obscene. Imagine what it would have been like if we lived in one of the battleground states,...

Letter: Weber offers proven ideas
Most of us have lived here for our entire lives or much of our lives. We remember what southwest Minnesota looks like when our people and small businesses are thriving. Locally grown businesses are what have fueled our economies for generations. It used to be that, if you worked hard...

Letter: Candidates need ability to think for themselves
Is our political system letting us down? It seems like it is all about getting our respective political party candidates elected. Until Congress decides to compromise for the good of our country, nothing gets done. Congress knows they only have a 10-percent approval rating, but that...

Letter: Ignore unfair attacks, vote for Oberloh
When I opened my mailbox the other day and found another flyer attacking Alan Oberloh, I was not surprised. It seems that a big metro PAC with boatloads of money is sending out attack piece after attack piece to convince us to vote against Alan Oberloh. I guess they know that people...

Letter: Weber makes wrong choice in letter response
I was shocked when I read Bill Weber's recent letter in your newspaper. Clearly he is trying to have it both ways, benefiting from personal attacks while accusing a good man of resorting to "political tactics." Weber and I both know that gossipy phone calls filled with lies were made...

Letter: Don't listen to special interests - support Oberloh
I have known Alan Oberloh for many years. I know him as an honest and hardworking, hands-on owner of a successful auto body shop. I know him as a family man who helped raise great kids. And, I know him as a mayor who stands up for his community and Greater Minnesota. Special interests...
