    A Lincolnshire letter to the editor: I am so happy the Daily Herald endorsed newcomer Leslie Munger for Illinois state representative.

     
  • It’s wrong to imply endorsement by church Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Lake Villa letter to the editor: Recently, I received a letter from Sam Yingling’s campaign that, to me, implied that he was endorsed by St. Gilbert’s Catholic Church in Grayslake. The dishonesty of such a letter is appalling.

     
  • Time for career politicians to go Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Gurnee letter to the editor: I wholeheartedly concur with your endorsement of Bruce Rauner for governor. It is about time that this state has a proven, successful businessman as governor instead of a politician like Pat Quinn.

     
  • Not just governor, he should be president Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Bruce Rauner has released his 2013 tax return showing that had made over $60 million. Why would anyone want to take on the responsibility of being the governor of Illinois and agree to not taking a salary or pension? The answer is obvious.

     
  • Schneider works for the people Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: Let’s do our homework and look up qualifications and/or voting records. This is important stuff. In the 10th Congressional District, I am supporting Brad Schneider for re-election. Brad has consistently supported the Affordable Care Act, standing up against attempts to repeal it.

     
  • Dold would make the hard choices Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A letter to the editor: The 10th Congressional District in Illinois is one of the most diverse districts in the United States. Our business base runs the gamut from Fortune 500 corporations to corner shops. Our communities house people of great wealth and others in great need. We require a representative who can fully grasp the complexities of the district and will work for its best interests in a difficult Washington environment.

     
  • Overstepping bounds on matters of life, death Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Ezekiel Emanuel hopes to die at 75, as he states in his recent Atlantic Monthly article, from which I am liberally referencing and commenting. His main reason is because we become less productive as we age. He says we are remembered as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic, and that our living too long places real emotional weights on our progeny. Leaving them with memories of our frailty is the ultimate tragedy.

     
  • Four reasons to leave Illinois Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Three reasons to leave Illinois are taxes, taxes, taxes. We are near or at the top in each of these! Property tax, state income tax and sales tax.

     
  • Herald must be doing the right thing Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Chicago letter to the editor: I am a Chicago reader of the Daily Herald and pick it up from a box on Chicago Avenue. Just wanted to let you know that I think it’s great that the paper received the Inland Community Leader Award. You must be doing the right thing, so keep it up. I find many items and stories in the Daily Herald that I don’t get in the Chicago papers. Often they pique my interest.

     
  • Rauner endorsement is contradictory Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Bruce Rauner’s recent endorsement by the Daily Herald ignores the obvious and serious conflict when a candidate panders to individual self-interests and then claims to be fiscally responsible.

     
  • Her Schaumburg street in sorry shape Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Letter to the editor: Jackie Perrucci wonders why Schaumburg has neglected routine maintenance on her street.

  • Make Metropolis a children’s theater Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Letter to the editor: Damien Kalck of Mt. Prospect has an idea for Metropolis - turn it into a children's theater.

     
  • Let’s find a way to honor late mayor Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Letter to the editor: David Kumpula of Hoffman Estates says the village needs to find a way to honor the late Mike O'Malley - perhaps by naming a playing field for him.

     
  • Moylan too tied to Madigan to suit him Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Letter to the editor: Ron Flowers doesn't think Marty Moylan is significantly independent of Mike Madigan to solve the problems at the state legislature.

     
  • Leadership lacking in Metropolis discussion Oct 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Letter to the editor: The current problem with Metropolis, says William Bishop of Barrington Hills, is that Arlington Heights is throwing money at the performing arts center without any clear vision of how it should go forward.

     
  • This riddle is hard to figure out Oct 19, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: As the party’s leader, would it not be incumbent on fellow Democrats running for office to have the president actively campaigning for them?

     
  • Sleepy Hollow tax hike grows bigger Oct 19, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Sleepy Hollow letter to the editor: Back in June, the Daily Herald reported that Sleepy Hollow may ask voters for a 77 percent tax hike. Well folks during the summer, village officials managed to get even greedier by upping the ante from an additional $400,000 to approximately $428,000, or a proposed 82 percent tax increase in village property taxes.

     
  • Democratic America will survive Obama Oct 19, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: The mid-term election means a Republican Senate 51 percent majority. Don’t hold your breath for the next two years waiting for any substantive legislation. But Congressional-Presidential gridlock got us used to that.

     
  • Home rule would mean higher taxes Oct 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Lake Zurich letter to the editor: In 1998, the residents of Lake Zurich voted 70 percent against home rule, so I again say: Lock your doors, close your windows, hide your wallets and don’t cash your paychecks because they’re coming after you and me for our money and power.
