Letter to the editor: The importance of local politics

September 30, 2015

Dear editor,Between fake hair and feeling the Bern, it’s easy to lose focus on the much less exciting realm of local politics.The impact of homegrown policymaking is likely to have a much more direct effect on your life than the issues being discussed on CNN.The Evergreen State is one of the best examp...

Letter to the editor: Qualifications, not quotas
