We love getting letters to the editor. Sometimes it can be exhausting and tedious to fit them in the confines of a page. It can be frustrating to get those phone calls asking, “Where is my letter?” But we love getting letters that add to the dialogue. With the local elections looming, we’ve been getting…

To the editor: The decision to file and then uphold an ethics complaint against Tom Lombardi is an outrage that flies in the face of any sense of fair play.

To the editor: Democrats want you to believe that under Republican leadership taxes are high. They are confused again. Under Democrat-controlled government (2007 to 2010) tax increases were double what they are under Republican leadership (2011 to 2014), and in 2015 taxes were raised less than 1 percent. Under the Democrat control, the sewer plant…

We invite readers to contribute letters to the editor. Please include a name, address, and phone number and email us at  JGoralski@ SouthingtonObserver.com.

To the editor: Those Board of “Ethics” members who recently decided that Tom Lombardi had a violation should look in the mirror and ask themselves if they acted morally and responsibly. Their decision, based on opinion vs. the fact, is a shameful stain on their credibility. They have attempted to create a perception of conflict…
