Letters, Nov. 25

Thank you, Phoenix

I’d like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the citizens of Phoenix for re-electing me as your mayor. Your overwhelming support is extremely gratifying and humbling. Councilors-elect Jim Snyder, Robert Crawford and Angie Vermillion would also like to express gratitude for your confidence in them.

These newly elected councilors and I are committed to working with our other councilors to maintain our small town feel while encouraging smart growth and insuring a positive, productive and bright future for your community. Phoenix’s renaissance continues.

If you did not vote for me, I really want to hear from you. Your voice is important. What are your aspirations, desires and suggestions for Phoenix? Your voices count! Diversity of thought is a strength.

My fellow citizens, please work with each other to bring peace, love and encouragement to our residents. Let’s work to reduce the bitter and divisive political discourse infecting Facebook and other media. We’re better than that. For accurate information please contact city staff, councilors and me. Keep it positive.

Please support our police, administrative staff, city employees and fellow citizens to make Phoenix an even better place to live, work and play.

Thanks for your continued support.

Chris Luz

Phoenix mayor

Thank you to Bobbio’s

Soroptimist International of North Valley would like to express our appreciation to Bobbio’s Pizza, a local, family-owned business.

We value their generosity and support for our mentoring project for middle school girls from Scenic and Hanby. The girls were involved in a community service project at Habitat For Humanity in which they built benches for future Habitat homeowners. The girls enjoyed the project and the delicious pizza!

Please support Bobbio’s, a very community centered local business.

Supporting Jordan Cove

Allie Rosenbluth’s guest opinion (Nov. 11) forgets to leave her bias at home. I support clean energy and job creation, I’m a union leader that knows safety is the highest priority, and I’m a member of the Cow Creek Tribe, so I take seriously any impacts to ancestral lands. I evaluate Jordan Cove from all these perspectives and after considering all the factual information on the record and in my discussions community leaders throughout Southern Oregon, I am proud to say that I support Jordan Cove.

Safety is certainly the highest priority so let’s look at Pembina’s record — Pembina has been building and operating natural gas infrastructure safely for more than 60 years. After a simple Google search you’ll find they have been given awards time and again for their enviable safety record and commitment to communities where they operate.

Combine that with the skilled Oregon union trades people building the project — we build projects to the highest standard, with workers who have decades of experience building energy infrastructure all over Oregon that meet stringent government standards for safety, environmental protection and reliability.

Jordan Cove is a smart project for Southern Oregon and I encourage everyone to voice their support.
