Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the letter, “Is the Courier-Herald slipping away from Plateau values?” published Nov. 18.
I will try and make this short and simple.
I too recently agreed to pay $60 a year for the Courier-Herald because I think it reflects the concerns and values within the community of the Buckly-Enumclaw area, of which I live. I like Rich Elfers’ column. Not everyone may agree with what he says, but a least he gives you something to ponder.
I found the column by Daisy Devine, the senior at EHS, insightful. She represents the next generation to step up and be active in our democracy. I was delighted to hear someone her age speak up and express her views. We should applaud her not discourage her efforts.
Elections are determined by “the people” not SCOTUS. The people voted on Nov. 3rd and they chose the next president. Sorry your candidate didn’t win, but the numbers don’t lie. Your candidate was not fit for the office of president. His track record is dismal. So please stop whining. Put on your big boy pants and accept the fact we will have a new president on Jan. 20, 2021.
And thank you Mr. Elfers for your column. I look forward to reading your column in upcoming issues of the Courier-Herald.
