Letters to the Tribune

Letter: Where was Stenehjem as Attorney General?

Normally, I would applaud a candidate for coming out in favor of criminal justice reform-our state is in dire need of it. We have skyrocketing incarceration rates, enormous drug problems, and have a system where a 20-year old college student caught selling $80 of marijuana can be threatened ...

Letter: Giving credit where credit is due

Far too many elected officials serve for their own self interests. Motivations to retain elective office range from the desire to wield power by imposing rules, regulations and taxes; stroking one's pride to reaping the rewards of health benefits, per diem payment and travel. This reality ...

Letter: Pierce County should rally again

Fellow citizens of Pierce County:Some weeks ago Pierce County residents were faced with the "borehole" experiment. It was very impressive to the quick preparedness and aptness to communicate the case against allowing it. I was proud to observe our county residents.With that being said, might I ...

Letter: District 14 a special interest

In reading Mr. Fred's letter in your recent paper we found a number of items which are somewhat inaccurate.Let us begin by simply asking what were the wishes and interests of the majority of District 14 voters we voted against? The three of us have been elected five times in the district. Last ...

If there's one thing I've learned throughout my career in the private sector, and as mayor of Watford City fighting for the future of western North Dakota, it's that you can't begin to solve a problem until you acknowledge that it exists. It's a basic concept, but one that is absolutely vital ...

Letter: Vote Klein

Whatever the season, it seems there is always more to do than hours in the day to do it.While I'm busy tending to my cattle and crops here at home, I know there are plenty of issues affecting my family and operation being discussed and debated at the Capitol, and, of course, I cannot always be ...

Letter: The Truth About District 14

I will respond to only one portion of Dennis Fred's letter at this time. He claims that people in our district have been ignored, no meetings were held and those who wanted to be involved were told there was nothing they needed to do.This could not be farther from the truth. I have been ...
