The continued rollback of regulations is the road map for a trip to hell in a handbasket. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, and my congressman, Mike Thompson, must call for vigilance. There is no time left to be silent.

The charlatan-in-chief

EDITOR: Donald Trump is a charlatan. If being a big New York City con man with a bloated ego who will say anything about everything and anyone just for attention is a qualification for the highest office in the land, believe me, our democracy is in serious jeopardy. Believe me, folks.

Throwing gas on a fire isn’t the way to extinguish a fire just as name-calling never solves arguments. It’s a ruse. A source of entertainment for a demented mind. America has created a monster capable of our demise. Tweet, tweet, tweet, blah, blah, blah, one lie after another. What will it take before people realize what a grave mistake Donald J. Trump is. We needed a leader who would be a problem-solver, not a problem.

Unauthorized settlement

EDITOR: The Sonoma County Employees Retirement Association’s settlement of a lawsuit in the early 2000s was unauthorized and has resulted in excessive pension payments ever since. This injustice to the taxpayers must stop now. We in Marin County have a similar problem with illegally authorized pension payments, but ours is due to illegal actions by our Board of Supervisors.
