I read with pleasure that Helen Probst Mills is running for North Carolina Senate in 2020. I have known Helen for several years and worked with her on several worthwhile programs.

As I read the article and Tom McInnis’ quote, as usual, a sense of dread overwhelmed me. Again, McInnis is clearly using his Republican threadbare tropes.

In 2016, his message in the primary was all about tearing down Michelle Lexo, and that tactic remained as he faced the general election. As a voter, I am more interested in finding out how the candidates intend on enhancing the lives of folks in the district, not what is wrong with their opposition.

I expect that, again, I will be bombarded with McInnis birdcage liners, telling anyone who might read them, the terrible character flaws of his opponent.

Enough! Tom McInnis, clean up your act. Start talking about the issues and how you intend to represent the people in North Carolina District 25.

Kent Misegades

Ms. Mills is largely responsible for the budget-busting government school spending and rapidly rising taxes in our county. We do not need such representatives in Raleigh.

Kent makes his assertion, that Ms. Mills is largely responsible for the budget-busting government school spending and rapidly rising taxes in Moore County, but provides absolutely no evidence to support it. This is what he always does. Well, I say he's a liar. Prove me wrong Kent, back-up your assertion with facts.
