Mail Call - Oct. 29

October 28, 2012

“First of all, I’m glad that we have Mail Call to call in our opinions. I hope it continues. And second, the debate last night gives me a clear choice. I am voting for Mitt Romney because he is a leader and actually says what he really means. I watched all his debates and I have watched all of his advertising, and I have followed him from the beginning. We need to look to him to win in November.”
— Boonsboro

“We have received more than 30 phone calls from John Delaney, using his robocall campaign. Any intelligent candidate should know that after you annoy a voter that often, the person will not be voting for you.”
— Hagerstown

“Dear ... Clear Spring person, wondering about atheists: For your information, we work for our money. We are not afraid to touch money, and yes, we use the money to live off, and yes, we spend all our money to get everything, just like everybody else. We handle money with our hands. However, on the other note, everyone has a different religion. Unless they’re in a Catholic school, there’s no reason to be saying the Lord’s Prayer in a public school, which I’m pretty sure they don’t do that in public schools. Sincerely, your friendly neighborhood atheist.”
— Hagerstown

“For residents of certain neighborhoods who decide that they want to pick and choose when to hold trick or treating, instead of having it on Oct. 31, which is Halloween: They need to stop opening people’s mailboxes and putting fliers in them. It’s against the law to open people’s mailboxes. Stay out of the mailboxes, have trick or treating on Oct. 31 like it’s supposed to be, on Halloween, and there won’t be any problems.”
— Hagerstown

“This call is for all the people who constantly call in and complain about President Obama and the economy. Just remember, if you get your way and Mitt Romney gets the job in January, President Obama will not be handing him an economy anywhere near the economy he got from President Bush, with a collapsing car industry, collapsing bank, collapsing housing market. The economy is stable now and it’s starting to get better, and Romney will take credit for that.”
— Hagerstown

“In the discussion about building a new stadium, I haven’t seen anything about the cost of maintaining the old stadium. If a new one is built, the old one will still be standing, and need to be maintained. There’s a cost involved there for the citizen, for the taxpayer, unless the stadium is torn down, which then is going to cost also, at least on a one-time basis.”
— Washington County

“I’m calling about the situation at Fairplay Fire Co. down in Fairplay, Md. I totally agree with the task force. You need to get rid of all the officers that they have now. They have been in there entirely too long, and if you want to start out fresh, that’s the way to do it, with everything. And I can’t understand, when the records and stuff are requested to be turned over, some of them, they still haven’t.”
— Hagerstown

“I want to thank the person or persons who took my antique chair off of my front porch. It was light wood with a hole in the middle of it. You could put a flowerpot in it. They must not be churchgoers. They should read the Ten Commandments. It says ‘Thou shall not steal.’ Any information, please call the sheriff’s department.”
— Hagerstown
