LETTERS TO THE EDITOR – January 18, 2018

Just another hypocrite

Dear Editor,

Our President recently suggested that immigrants from Haiti and Africa are mostly from “s—t-hole countries.”
Hereby I quote from the inscription on our Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Or how about this? “Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien…” Jeremiah 22:3-5 (English Standard Version – The Holy Bible)
I ask, “Are you an American citizen?— a Christian American citizen?”
Or are you just another hypocrite?

Just askin’

Raymond “Rusty” Strait,
Hemet


Paralysis of Hemet City Council

Dear Editor,

Before Measure “U”.  Before the revelation of illegal off books accounting, the state auditor gave specific details of how to solve this city’s budget problems and not go into bankruptcy. This city Council has flagrantly ignored good advice and continues to push the city towards bankruptcy.
Immediate action is required now.
The city attorney needs to be suspended immediately until  a thorough  investigation can be completed.
The city clerk needs to be suspended without pay until further investigation into the balloting improprieties.
Council-member Krupa and council-member Wright both need to resign immediately.
The state auditor’s requirements need to be implemented immediately.
The state audit needs to be expanded to include all off books accounting activity.
Any and all illegal activity that is found during these processes needs to be prosecuted.

Jim Welker Hemet, CA
