Letter: Vote the incumbents out Letter: Vote the incumbents out To the editor:

This November I plan on voting against every incumbent. It seems the issues that were present when these fine people took office are still an issue. Take heed, members of Congress, county and local council incumbents – I'm voting for your opponent, and these are my reasons.

I am voting for the opponent of any governing officials who monitor the intersection of New York Avenue and Route 40. For more than six years they would rather buy more orange barrels than repair a drainage issue.
