Galvin: Why I voted to increase pay

Dear Editor: Many residents have contacted me about legislation that increased stipends for certain positions in the legislature and pay for the state’s judges and constitutional officers. There has been considerable inaccurate information spread about what was included in this legislation. I wish to clarify some of the finer points of this legislation that helped […]

Legislative pay raises shocking, hypocritical

Dear Editor: I am disgusted and speechless by the size and scope of the pay raise Representative Bill Galvin (D-Canton) voted for himself and his fellow legislators. Thus, I will type it out. State legislators recently received a pay raise four weeks ago and came off a five-month vacation prior to their recent vote to […]

Environmental activism in the age of Trump

Dear Editor: As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump promised to “Make America Great Again.” While what he meant remains ambiguous, what is clear is that he liberally invokes divisive rhetoric and blame and that caring for our environment is not part of his program. President Trump demonstrated that he is a climate change denier by […]

Women’s marchers: No apology needed

Editor’s note: In response to a recent Canton Citizen story on the Women’s March on Washington, reader Larry Overlan requested an apology for statements made about President Donald Trump. Below are the responses from the two women who were featured in the original story. *** Dear Editor: Larry Overlan, I will be happy to apologize […]

No consistency with Trump supporter’s remarks

Dear Editor: I read with amusement Larry Overlan’s letter admonishing Nancy Bloom and Susan Johnson for their “vicious statements” in reference to Donald Trump. He went onto say, “Such awful, unsubstantiated comments do a disservice to our country’s president.” My question for Mr. Overlan is this: where was your outrage when Donald Trump spent five […]

It’s time to wake up and resist

Dear Editor: I was saddened to see that the Ringling Bros. Circus was folding its tents after over 100 years of entertainment across the USA. But I was soon heartened by the fact that a new circus based in Washington, D.C., was emerging. The new owner/ringmaster has promised that his circus will indeed be like […]

Trump critics should apologize for verbal attacks

Dear Editor: Regarding the vicious statements (“President Trump is extremely dangerous and disgusting”) made by Nancy Bloom and echoed by Susan Johnson in the story on the women’s march in the January 19 edition of the Citizen, they should be ashamed of themselves for setting a terrible example for the children of Canton with their […]

Revenue forecasting a collaborative effort

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on something I read in the January 12 Canton Citizen article on the school budget; i.e., that on January 26, the finance director and the Finance Committee will make their recommendation on the revenue for FY18. To clarify how the process works, Canton has a Revenue Forecasting Committee. […]

Food for thought from a different point of view

Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter by Alice Brown that appeared in last week’s Canton Citizen. Dear Editor: It doesn’t sound like Alice Brown lives in the same United States of America that I do. Our republic’s Constitution calls for an Electoral College in order to count the votes of the […]

Searching for silver linings in post-election America

Dear Editor: I never thought I would see states’ rights as a good thing, since my governor (George Wallace) used it as an excuse to rob people of color of their human rights. But attorneys general Healey and Schneiderman give me hope. So what if Trump puts in an EPA head who wants to destroy the […]
