Letters to the Editor

I commend LNP | LancasterOnline for publishing, and Curtis Villanueva Jantzi for writing, the Jan. 19 op-ed “Lancaster needs permanent Housing First.”

I know there is sufficient hype around Chick-fil-A’s new restaurant being proposed along Lititz Pike. I personally wish that these high-traffic businesses were used to develop new areas in Lancaster County, instead of contributing to further traffic density. However, that doesn’t seem to be …

Outspoken pacifists who flaunt their anti-military posture by writing regular letters to LNP | LancasterOnline (examples: “Shift spending from the military” on Nov. 17 and “Pentagon spending poisons our culture” on Dec. 21) could feel better about themselves and our country by joining with t…

To quote Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell from Jan. 19: “The concern is misplaced, because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.”

The failure of Lancaster County Commissioners Ray D’Agostino and Josh Parsons to appoint Alisa Jones, CEO of our local community health center (Union Community Care) to the Health Advisory Council when there are still openings is appalling. I believe she would bring the voices of the underse…

The Electoral College’s primary purpose was not to give small states greater representation, as is often claimed by its defenders. Instead, the Electoral College was created to reflect the political realities associated with accommodating the institution of slavery into our electoral system.

Over the holidays, my father-in-law, a staunch Republican and Vietnam War veteran, said something that gave me pause. He said, unprompted, that he knew that his house on the Florida coast would be underwater someday soon.

I am writing this after reading the Jan. 20 letter “We need the peacemakers,” which concerned the writer’s self-revelation about the previous president. The writer’s plea for an identification of “peacemakers” is exactly what is needed. Let me repeat it, but approach the writer’s words from …

It is difficult to read op-eds that I believe are so leftist and ill-informed, like the ones from Charles Blow of The New York Times. It is is also unfortunate that LNP is publishing such leftist opinions.

Is today a good day to remind everyone that U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker voted against certifying the legally cast and counted ballots of his constituents in the 2020 election? It’s puzzling, because I clearly remember that his name was on the same ballot.

Redistricting is so 18th-century. In my view, it was part of a good Constitution when there were 13 states with a total population of about 4 million people. It was good when people could not travel faster than horses, good when people could not be heard beyond the sound of their voices, and…
