Golden Valley Letter: Printing letter was disrespectful

Shame on you. The letter you printed about Janice Palmer was very disrespectful. There was no need for pronouns to describe Janice.

I agree that the political signs should come down, but let's have more respect for other people.

Janice Palmer didn't even care enough to answer the questions put to him by the chamber of commerce. The whole idea there was to inform the citizens so they could make an educated decision . Most of the other candidates provided their answers. Why would you be surprised he didn't pick up his signs?

Earl Hamlyn needs to remove his signs from the foreclosed residence's fence on Calle Castano, the corner of Calle Castano and Bank Street, AND the residence fence on Calle Dimas!

"The he/she was acceptable, as Palmer is a man dressed in women's clothes, Palmer was deceptive from the beginning, his past experience can't be validated, lies were given to KDM about council candidates by him, Palmers whole demeanor and actions are questionable."

I tend to agree. I did not know until after the the election about his/her transgender status. Some people may say "what does it have to do with running for office". The fact that he/she was not comfortable revealing enough history for one to make a logical voting decision takes away credibility. I guess we were suppose to just take his/her word about the 5 degrees.

What was more disrespectful, disappointing, sad, and maddening was the response of Janice.
The letter could have been worded differently, but, no matter what is said anyone wanting to be in politics should know people can be rude, rotten, mean, and stupid.
Ask where the signs are and take them down.
DONE, no more needed or needs to be said.

There are laws on the books for a reason. By not removing her signs in a timely manner, she showed a lack of respect for those laws that had she won, she would of had to support. Additionally, by leaving the signs up showed a lack of respect to the citizens of Mohave County, the individuals that did win. How can she say on one hand that she is going to represent Mohave County, and on the other hand, disrespect the very people who had voted for her. She'll get no pity from me.

The letter was not disrespectful. It was needed, since Palmer has disregarded the rules to take them. The he/she was acceptable, as Palmer is a man dressed in women's clothes. When you run for a public office, you need to be honest and forthright, as well as transparent in qualifications. Palmer was deceptive from the beginning, his past experience can't be validated, lies were given to KDM about council candidates by him, Palmers whole demeanor and actions are questionable. Evidently there are 3000 voters out there who do not care about honesty and integrity in a candidate, so glad Gary and Janet Watson are in office. Palmer had no respect for fellow council candidates or elected officials and I guess people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. The voters picked the best candidates, who were honest and who would promote the area in a respectful and ethical way. If you want respect, you give respect, something Palmer has not learned yet. It's not a matter of being a man or woman, it's being a responsible, honest adult that is in question.
