<b>No more years</b>
EDITOR: There's a rumor circulating that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is telling his colleagues that the top priority for Republicans over the next four years is to deny Barack Obama a third term. And, by golly, this time I think we're gonna do it!
<b>A west side candidate</b>
EDITOR: I agree with your Saturday editorial ("Find west SR Resident for council seat"). After Susan Gorin steps down to take her seat on the Board of Supervisors, the new Santa Rosa City Council must agree on an appointment to fill her vacated position. They do not have to look too far to find someone who lives west of Highway 101 and came in fifth in the election. Don Taylor should be appointed to the council to fill that seat.
Not only did he get more than 19,000 votes in the election, but his service to the community as a former planning commissioner, Community Advisory Board member, Railroad Square merchant and too many other community service/volunteer activities to mention makes him the ideal person for the job.
