Letter: Gas taxes wasted on public sector transit

How much sooner would we have highway improvements if we didn't waste gas taxes and vehicle fees on boondoggle public sector transit? If we didn't run all those empty buses around? If we didn't pretend that public sector transit was beneficial, and cover up...

Letter: Reduce energy costs and bill fluctuations

We understand no one likes energy bills that are higher than expected. Heat waves are causing customers to crank up their AC, which can lead to higher energy bills.  PG&E does not add any mark up on the energy we buy for customers, neither gas...

Letter: It’s time to privatize transit

Regarding more public sector rail transit boondoggles feasting off taxpayers forcing up gas taxes and auto fees so that politicians can crow “success” about boondoggle monstrosities like County Transit, Caltrain, Amtrak, etc., thanks for considering transport options, one of my favorite subjects.  The late Secretary...

Guest View: Quarry jeopardizes our health

Dear Mayor Blankley and Council Members, We ask you to enact a resolution urging Santa Clara County to deny the application for a quarry on the Sargent Ranch property. We also ask you to direct staff to make official comments on the Draft Environmental Impact...

The future of the Sargent Ranch site is officially open for discussion. While I am a big proponent of property rights, I do believe that in some situations, overriding concerns can place limitations on them.  I have attended seminars on “takings” at League of Cities...

Letter: Bills force truckers off the road

In addition to inflation worsening our supply chains, the throttling of 70,000 owner-operator truckers by California's AB5 and AB2257 is one heck of a monkey wrench tossed into our gearbox.  I am a 1966 graduate of the Motor Carrier Fleet Safety Supervisor School at UC...

Letter: Local Dem club’s confusing actions

I was a member of the South County Democratic Club for over 14 years. It was not always a pleasant experience for me, but now I must say that I am angry and confused about who they support in the Party and why.  Years ago,...

Letter: California will not be missed

I moved out of California this year. Astronomical taxes along with diminishing services, high prices, increasing crime, crumbling infrastructure, and absence of leadership led me to an easy and obvious decision to leave. The California of today reminds me of my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio...

Letter: Transparency needed in all levels of government

“The March Toward Darkness” (Gilroy Dispatch, June 24) is an opinion with which I agree wholeheartedly! The newspaper is one way we, the public, must keep our eye on what our representatives are doing or what they are proposing, in the dark. I am not comfortable...
