Get informed, then get out to vote Nov. 4

To the Editor:
Voting is a right. Wars have been fought over this, revolutions have been waged over this, people have died for this right.

Attack ads on Peterson are unwarranted

To the Editor:
I have seen enough of the negative political ads to make up my mind, especially about 7th District U.S. Congressman Collin Peterson, D-Minn. He had my vote even before the recent barrage of nasty political ads surfaced, because I got to know him over the past years during newspaper interviews and occasional stopovers in the Glencoe area. He is a man of good common sense.
The latest batch of TV attack ads go after his vehicle rental leases and mileage for his airplane. Pretty feeble attempts at slinging mud.

Robeck understands city’s infrastructure

To the Editor:
Finally! We have a young man running for the council seat-at-large in the city of Glencoe who is very knowledgeable of the infrastructure in this city. He understands the problems that may occur and will see that they are taken care of correctly.
Do yourself a favor for all of us and vote for Allen Robeck, council person at-large.
