Letters to the Editor

Open Letter to President Barack Obama, Democratic National Committee Officers and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee:

As former members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), we had the honor of serving as staff or DNC members for a collective total of 38 years between 1971 and 2010. During our service on the DNC, no sitting Democratic President of the United States ever became involved in a Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate. When I (Polly) was Vice Chair of the National Democratic Party (1981-89), I pledged prior to my election that I would not be involved in any Democratic primary race, which was the norm for national Party Officers.

DiStefano leadership offers great promise

Dear Editor,

Shakespeare reminded us in Julius Caesar of the importance of praising effective leadership with Marc Antony’s famous line “I have come not to bury Caesar but to praise him.”

Treasurer's candidate J.J. Ament is still making false claim

Dear Editor,

I was surprised by your recent article about the GOP state treasurer primary (“Hasan Opens Treasurer’s Race by Attacking His Foes,” Jan. 8), which relayed a quote by candidate J.J. Ament that he is “the only candidate [for state treasurer] with a background in finance.”
