  • Rouzer’s lack of response calls for electing Horton to Congress

    To the editor:

    Five times our precinct committee attempted to set an appointment with Congressman David Rouzer to discuss matters related to the election. I offered to limit the meeting to four Democrats, one unaffiliated voter and one Republican and to submit the issues that we wished to discuss. In a final attempt to engage Mr. Rouzer, I mailed the questions to him and the proposed agenda to him, to no avail.

  • Republicans already chose not to answer county citizens

    To the editor:

    On Oct. 17, my wife and I attended the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear candidates’ forum moderated by Jon Evans of WECT. The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan and never endorses candidates or makes contributions to any political party.

    As always, Barbara Burrell and the LWV did an outstanding job in organizing and promoting this event. Candidates from all political parties were invited to participate, but only those from the Constitutional, Libertarian and Democratic parties did.

  • All candidates should take part in public forums

    To the editor:

    I want to thank the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear for putting on the candidates’ forum in Shallotte on Oct. 17. Kudos as well to WECT’s Jon Evans for doing a great job of moderating the event and keeping things moving throughout the evening.

  • Vote Mascolo for state senate

    To the editor:

    The election is upon us and I’d like to remind Beacon readers that there is an option to the Republican and Democratic candidates for state Senate District 8. Mr. Anthony Mascolo, Libertarian, is running against Sen. Bill Rabon and Dr. David Sink Jr.

  • Vote to end the destruction of our environment

    To the editor:

    Hurricane Florence may be gone but the impact will be felt for a long time. We can’t stop a hurricane, but we can do something to stop the destructive actions by our current elected officials.

  • Clean up our country’s politics with your votes and your money

    To the editor:

    We have presidential election loser Hillary Clinton advocating for the country to be uncivil to one another. We have a sitting senator, Maxine Waters, advocating harassing anyone who is a Republican anytime, anywhere. Then there is 2020 presidential candidate Eric Holder, a former U.S. Attorney General, telling his supporters to “kick” his opponents.

  • Thank you to all who helped rescue squad

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the officers and members of Coastline Volunteer Rescue Squad, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many citizens who volunteered their time and effort to CVRS before, during and after Hurricane Florence. Your help positively impacted so many people that were affected by this storm.

    Also, a special thanks to Twin Lakes By the Sea who provided a wonderful meal to the Coastline Volunteers and Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center Staff — this was a meal welcomed by all of us.

  • Kudos to BFA, partners and volunteers

    To the editor:

    Brunswick Family Assistance, its partners and volunteers deserve commendation for their distribution of food, water, clothing, cleaning products, paper supplies, diapers, tarps, etc. to thousands of people in Brunswick County impacted by Hurricane Florence.

  • Why don’t you just trust in God?

    To the editor:

    I had been a Democrat all my life until the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in 2012 when the crowd booed God and had any reference to God removed from the platform. President Obama had them put God back in so as not to lose the support of the black churches and other Christians. My wife and I changed to Independent the next day. We did not leave the Democratic Party; it left us.

  • Tillis and Burr shut down communication

    To the editor:

    The next time U.S. Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr wish to claim they are doing a fantastic job in representing their constituents, they should make sure they keep their lines of communication open.

    I made repeated attempts to contact their offices to voice my opinion regarding the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, only to be told their lines were full and I should try my call later.
