Wall to represent parents

Editor, Everyone agrees that Judy Eppler is a knowledgeable, dedicated, experienced and respected educator, including her service on the Mariposa County Unified School District Board of Trustees. However, check out the present trustees and their backgrounds: four out of the five district represented are retired educators. They are all very capable trustees. Nonetheless, it is obvious that parental input and […]

Eppler’s experience crucial for district

Editor, I strongly urge you to vote for Judy Eppler for District 3 School Board member on November’s ballot. Judy has been a consistent and knowledgeable addition to the MCUSD School Board for the past seven years. In addition to her excellent service on the board, Judy carries more than 40-plus years of experience supporting Mariposa County public schools. Judy […]

Wall breath of fresh air

Editor, Honesty, dedication and commitment. Those are the things that Christy Wall strives for. Those are the things that she will continue to do as our District 3 School Board member. She has the knowledge, education, experience and passion that we admire as not only a voice for our children and grandchildren, but as a friend to all. She presents […]

Eppler has the knowledge

Editor, I am writing in support of Judy Eppler for the Mariposa County Unified School District Board of Trustees. In the scope of California education and the funding for education, there have been more changes in the past four years than any time over the past 20 years. The effects to programs and funding have had great impact. Having knowledge […]

Eppler best for seat on school board

Editor, As a former Mariposa teacher and current school board member, I have known Judy Eppler for 30 years. Mariposa is fortunate to have had her expertise on the school board for the past seven years because not only has she worked as a teacher, principal, and district administrator, she currently works as an educational consultant for the Fresno County […]

Measure M needs passed

Editor, I attended the debate hosted by AAUW last week. I believe there were some obvious points made in favor of passing Measure M. The opponents of the measure seemed to weigh heavily on the perceived detriment to their industry only. The supporters of the measure spoke about the entire community and what services we would all benefit by having […]

Measure M is right for Mariposa County

Editor, Why I am voting for Measure M to raise the TOT by 2 percent? The 2 percent increase in TOT could bring in as much as $3 million to the county. That money will go toward increasing the abilities of the sheriff’s office to protect us, better roads and fire prevention. This increase will benefit everyone in the county […]

Morse is hands-on candidate

Editor, The debate on Sept. 23 should have helped you decide on whom to vote for, but here is some food for thought: Tom McClintock has represented this area for 10 years and has almost nothing to show for it. He named a couple of post offices, a mountain and would like to euthanize wild horses. Meanwhile, he has voted […]

Happy to endorse Eppler

Editor, As a retired Mariposa teacher of many years, I am happy to endorse Judy Eppler for the Mariposa school board. I worked with Judy over the years as a parent and a teacher in various capacities, and always found her to be a conscientious professional. Judy has integrity, strong leadership capabilities, a willingness to listen and an approachable demeanor. […]

Send McClintock home

Editor, Our democracy is in some danger right now. We must have a much larger than normal voter turnout in this fall election. The future depends on it; your vote does count. The person we send to Congress will have a say in which direction the country goes. Please vote. California District 4 is currently represented or misrepresented by Tom […]
