LETTERS: In support of tolls, in support of McCain

LETTERS: In support of tolls, in support of McCain



Bring back tolls

Editor:

I’m writing this letter in regard to tolls in Connecticut. I can’t understand why the legislators are having such a hard time deciding, yes or no, on the tolls. To me it’s a no-brainer. Of course, we need to have tolls, where else is the money going to come from for road repairs and repairs to bridges, etc. I pay tolls in other states for their road repairs. It’s about time out-of-staters paid tolls to our state. I also believe the residents of Connecticut need not pay tolls when driving in Connecticut. We pay enough in taxes already.

This is my opinion but I’ll bet a lot of other people in Connecticut agree with me. I hope our legislators do the right thing and that they bring back tolls to Connecticut.

Disrespectful president

Editor:

I am a Vietnam Era Veteran. My brother, a cousin and many friends served in country in Vietnam during the war. A close military friend of mine died in Vietnam. My family has had at least eighteen (18) members serve in the military from World War II to date. Therefore, I can write ... That I do not respect nor trust our President/ Commander and Chief.

This is an individual who hid from the possibility of military service, (Vietnam War Era) by procuring a deferment for a heel spur. Was it in truth a heel spur? Or, like the stock market probably a “paper” spur.

He is a person who throws darts at Senator John McCain (Deceased) in a disparaging manner. He, President Trump, is an immoral, unethical, cowardly bully. His comments directed at Senator John McCain are offensive to all military veterans: past, present and future.
