To the Editor: I am proud to have a representative in the legislature who has the courage to stand against metro interests and influence and is true to his principles. We are proud of Ron Kresha and our area. Kresha reads the bills in entirety, and I am proud he has the courage to vote [...]

To the Editor: I’m glad I listened to the radio debate between Al Doty and Ron Kresha last week, as it really helped clarify my support for Al Doty. Don’t get me wrong, Rep.
