Letter to the Editor, Oct. 23: Vote for Marie

I am 19 and this is my first time being included in the voting process. Voting is something we are lucky enough to have the privilege to do, and we need to make sure that we are taking full advantage of these opportunities. Voting...

Letter: No need to search outside for administrator

I disagree with Mayor Roland Velasco's claim that Gilroy should have conducted a nationwide search for a new city administrator instead of appointing Jimmy Forbis, who has been the Gilroy Finance Director since 2016 and is the current interim administrator.  Full disclosure, I live in...

Guest View, Carol Marques: Spend energy on solutions, not negativity

By Carol Marques I was disappointed last week when I read a letter to the editor in the Dispatch which reinforced the negativity that is trending right now. The writer’s perceptions of the City of Gilroy lack the facts. Much of what he is concerned...

Letters to the Editor, Sept. 17: Listen to the voters, America will be strong again

Listen to the voters I completely agree with the letter written to the Gilroy Dispatch by Bill O’Connor, “Accept the voters’ voices,” dated Sept. 11, 2020. With the approximately 20,000 city-wide voters that will vote for members of the City Council and Mayor on Nov. 3,...

Editorial: Thrill on the Alley

With distanced outdoor dining all the rage, there’s never been a better time to roll out Gilroy’s long marinating Gourmet Alley project. The branded corridor, which runs between Monterey and Eigleberry streets from 3rd to 7th, has had its cool-sounding name for at least...

Letter: America is in trouble

We have a big election this year. President Trump seems to think this is Joe Biden’s America, well it’s not, it’s Donald Trump’s America, where mayhem and chaos is now an everyday thing! Trump is a failure in every way! The virus, the economy. What...
