Letters: Blaming GOP for vote scandal is disingenuous

Voter drive under attack from GOP | Oct. 18, letter

Supervise voter drives at schools

I think it ridiculous and disingenuous for any Democrat to point a critical finger at the GOP for hiring and summarily firing a suspect registration firm when the Democrats for years funneled federal funds, part of the $16 trillion debt, to the poster child of voter fraud, ACORN.

Superintendent Heather Fiorentino and School Board members were prudent in disallowing additional policy breaks by allowing more partisan speech in the classroom. Multiple wrongs do not make a right.

In the future, only the supervisor of elections should be able to hold voter registrations on school grounds to avoid any further use of the classrooms and students for political agendas.

Plethora of signs is out of control

I find it reprehensible to see all the signs on the lawns of our homes in our community.

According to our bylaws, there are no signs permitted. I spoke with one of our board members, and he advised me that the federal government allows this. It seems to me that each state and county, along with the communities, have their own laws.

Sheriff's Office isn't short on PR

Every time I open a newspaper there is a photo or story on Sheriff Chris Nocco, and now I know why. Since being appointed by Gov. Scott as Pasco sheriff, Mr. Nocco has added public relations and media personnel to the department.

There are now three public relations/media staff employed by the Sheriff's Office. We need more patrol officers but we get hype. I wonder if the sheriff will need three public relations/media consultants after the election is over?
