Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: TRUMP VOTERS WERE TIRED OF OLD POLITICS

Editor, Times-Advocate: In reference to Richard Bova’s letter to the editor stating that President Trump is a disruptor and this is disastrous; this is exactly the reason why people voted him in. We are tired of the old political infrastructure and want to “drain the swamp.”  President Trump “allowed” the coronavirus to sweep the country? I’ll tell you this much, […]

Letter to the Editor: HOSPITAL DISTRICT’S “SINKING FORTUNES”

Editor, Times-Advocate: Re: “Candidate Grove wants to provide access to safe, quality health care” The Palomar Hospital District has severe financial issues and the community may soon see their tax bills go up to fill in the opening gaps. The board is led by Dr. Engel who has severe conflicts of interest along with “private partners” and is personally benefiting […]

Letter to the Editor: PALOMAR HEALTH IS AWARD-WINNING

Editor, Times-Advocate:  Election season is a great time to make our voices heard and exercise our constitutional right to vote for candidates and issues we believe in. This is the beauty of our country, but the unfortunate side of elections is negative campaigning and mudslinging. Recently, there has been campaign-related information that casts Palomar Health in a negative light and […]

Letter to the Editor: HAVING THE DISRUPTOR IN CHARGE IS DISASTROUS

Editor, Times-Advocate: RE: Rick Elkin column ‘The Disruptor”  There were things I agreed and disagreed with in this column. Many people voted for Donald Trump as a Randall McMurphy type disruptor. I would say that Nurse Ratched represented not the modern progressive culture but the conservative culture where everyone “knows their place in society.”  In the movie, Randall McMurphy takes […]

Letter to the Editor: DISCREPANCY ON VOTER INFORMATION

Editor, Times-Advocate: Attention Michael Wu, Registrar of Voters There is a discrepancy on information sent out to voters. On the information page, under Section 2, it says to sign your ballot “like it appears on your driver’s license or identification card.” On the return ballot envelope, it says “signature must match your voter registration record.” As a former City Clerk, I […]

Letter to the Editor: WHERE HAVE OUR GAS TAX DOLLARS GONE?

Editor, Times-Advocate: OK, y’all know I am not happy with the State of California, but things are getting ridiculous. Two day ago I was stopped at eastbound Grand at Ash in Escondido on my motorcycle.  This is a state highway intersection as Ash is SR78.  I put my foot down in a major pothole.  Not good.  But then I look […]

Letter to the Editor: OLD RACIAL PLAYBOOK REMAINS

Editor, Times-Advocate: Re: “Council rejects $515K in traffic safety funding” We have seven major exits off the freeways into Escondido that lead to a handful of major traffic arteries within the city. Surely the council could have applied strings to their Yes vote to assure a scientific and statistical probability approach was applied to a traffic safety policy.  Smearing our […]

Letter to the Editor: I PRAY A DRUNK DRIVER DOESN’T HIT YOU

Editor, Times-Advocate: Re: “Council rejects $515K in traffic safety funding” I really pray a drunk driver never hits any of you. I lost a brother and a uncle from drunk drivers. Have done so many accidents locally resulting in serious or fatal accidents. Just one arrest at a checkpoint  can save someone’s life. GWEN LATTA,  Escondido

Letter to the Editor: FIGHT FOR COMMUNITY SAFETY AND SUPPORT THE POLICE

Editor, Times-Advocate: It’s one thing having 18-year old teenagers riot while promoting the idea of defunding the police, it’s another when two members of our own City Council have fallen for the illogical, dangerous trickery that these fringe groups support. One would expect our elected officials to know better, and act like educated adults; however, it looks like Olga Diaz […]

Letter to the Editor: POLICE CITIZENS COMMISSION – SOLUTION LOOKING FOR A PROBLEM

Editor, Times-Advocate: Even as I have watched the mayhem and terror on city streets across America, I felt secure knowing that I lived in Escondido, where our leaders along with our proactive and effective Police Department was protecting our city.  As I listened to the lunacy among Mayors and City Councils in Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, and LA about taking away […]
