Mail Call

September 10, 2010

"Why a debate now? Asking for a debate this close to the election is nothing but a ploy by someone very desperate. After all these years, everyone pretty well knows by now Mr. Munson's stance on things. Mistakes made? You bet, but who hasn't? His accomplishments far outweigh the few mistakes he has made. What are Chris Shank's accomplishments over the last years as a delegate? In the last year alone, he presented nine bills for law, and had nine ... this is a no-brainer here. Vote Don Munson."

-- Hagerstown




"Well, I see in the Tuesday morning paper where Bruce Poole has changed his party affiliation so he could vote Republican. If he's smart, he'll stay Republican. And the other thing is that Poole ... losing to Shank. He lost to a good man. Otherwise, that don't make him much."

"To the person who says Del. Shank is trying to tarnish Sen. Munson's name: Apparently you don't get The Herald-Mail on Sundays. ... Shank's mailers have provided honest and factual truth about Munson's recent record. I have been shocked to learn the truth, but so glad Del. Shank has opened my eyes to things I never knew. All I can say to those of you who don't like Del. Shank's mailers is this: The truth always hurts."

"Has anyone heard Chris Shank explain how he would cut taxes? Tax cuts happen only after a delegate or senator introduces a bill with tax cut language written into it, and then convinces a majority of the legislative body to vote for that bill. Shank introduced 10 fairly irrelevant bills last session but none were passed. So why would anyone expect a majority of the state legislature to jump on Chris Shank's bandwagon in the next session?"

-- Washington County




"I'd like to say that seeing Sen. Munson and John Donoghue out on the street corner waving to voters is like seeing two peas in the pod, and one of the -- two of the biggest mistakes I made as a voter was voting for both of them -- but never again."

-- Hagerstown




"Vote for Russell Williams for Washington County school board. He is a resourceful and knowledgeable man, who has the skills to advance the direction of the school board. Mr. Williams is a dedicated president of the NAACP and father to his ... daughter. He ... constantly works to improve the lives of various minorities in this county. Because he is a Washington County retired schoolteacher and a parent, his experiences both in and out of the school system will help him create policy that is beneficial for students, parents and school personnel."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm a Republican. However, I do not know Don Munson personally, but I think it's funny that ... a person in Mail Call says he should retire before he disgraces himself. I think Don Munson can decide for himself, and I think the voters can decide whether they want him to retire or not. And I will tell you one thing, I will vote for Don Munson and I will never, ever vote for Chris Shank. ... Chris Shank has lowered himself because of the sleazy tactics he is using. I'll never vote for him."

-- Hagerstown




"A few weeks ago, a caller called in and made an observation about the neighbors of Denny Stouffer in Ringgold and how there were signs for Denny Stouffer all over Ringgold, and you can obviously tell a lot about the character of that person by the support of his neighbors. I just came up Oak Hill Avenue, and all I saw were 'I support Cort' posters. I didn't see a single Donoghue one."

-- Hagerstown




"I just read the editorial about Munson being the clear choice for the race for the state Senate seat. I really appreciate that editorial coming out, because I had planned on voting for Shank, but now I see clearly with this editorial that Munson seems to be the clear choice. I just wanted to say that."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about the election signs that are around the area, and I've noticed one that says 'I support Cort.' I cannot support Cort, because he has the Maryland flag upside down on his sign. So I wish he'd pay attention to small details, because small details like that can either get you elected or not elected."

-- Hagerstown




"To the person in the West End who wants to trap the cats: I would advise him to let the poor animals alone, if they aren't hurting anybody and destroying any property. If you take them to the humane society, the only thing that's gonna happen to them in all probability is that they'll be put down."

-- Hagerstown




"This is in regards to the election, the upcoming election. Regarding Don Munson, Don Munson does not hold -- he does not own that seat. That seat does not belong to him. It was given to him by the citizens, and we have the right to take it back. Chris Shank will be our man. We've constantly voted for Munson, but we have definitely ... we've positively decided to vote for Chris Shank."
