• Handicapped parking

    Instead of providing more handicapped parking spaces for the disabled, as suggested in the Chronicle of Aug 6, how about putting some effort into ensuring the existing spaces are being used by the truly needy? 

  • Disappointed voter

    I read this morning’s Chronicle (Monday, July 21) only to find out that according to some of our candidates for District 4, “JJ” Kenney has just totally ruined this county. He’s a one-man band, I guess. According to his competition for a seat on the Citrus County Commission, he has total control over all the good, bad or indifferent things that happen in the county.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Support for trade school advocated

    We have one of the best school districts in the state of Florida, and I want to keep it that way or even make it better.

    I have a certain passion that says not everyone is going to be college bound. Today, about 

  • ENDORSEMENT: Doug Dodd has my vote for school board

    This is an unusual endorsement. Recently, I was involved in a two-vehicle accident. As I dialed 911, I heard a voice suggest what I should say. It was Doug Dodd. I offered him the phone. He took it and gave the dispatcher the pertinent information needed. Then, he calmly managed the scene until an officer arrived. He briefed the officer spoke to the witnesses and myself before he left to resume his travels. 

  • ENDORSEMENT: Support McPheeters in BOCC election

    I am a senior citizen and I met Renee Christopher-McPheeters, candidate for Citrus County Commissioner District 2, at the West Citrus Community Center, which she has supported over the years. Myself and many friends from the center will be voting for Renee because she cares for seniors and will look out for us. 

    Get out and vote for Renee. We need at least one woman on the BOCC.

  • Endorsement rebuttal: Kitchen offers new course for county

    I would like to thank the Chronicle for the outstanding job they did in defining the District 2 county commissioner race. The Chronicle stated “... only Kenney and Kitchen have the requisite leadership, experience and knowledge to effectively guide Citrus County for the next four years.” 

  • Endorsement rebuttal: Vote McPheeters for real change

    First of all, I firmly believe that I, Renee Christopher-McPheeters am the best candidate to serve the citizens of Citrus County as commissioner, District 2, and all registered Republicans in Citrus County can vote for me in the Republican primary, on or before Aug. 26. 

  • Endorsement rebuttal: Carnahan offers calm, professionalism

    As you know, the District 4 County Commission election is the general election. Reason being, my opponent and I are both of the same political party. Both of our names will appear on your primary ballot for all Citrus County registered voters. Our government structure is such that a commissioner is district “assigned,” in essence to ensure countywide representation. It does not mean the election is district-specific. Thus, you and your neighbors will be electing your commissioner for District 4. 

  • Barriers eyesores and unsafe

    I hesitated to write this, but now that the Sound Off of Friday, Aug. 1, has brought this to light, I must speak up.

  • Setting the record straight

    On July 15, I was interviewed by the Chronicle concerning my desire to (be) elected to the School Board of Citrus County.

    Imagine my dismay when, in the published interview on July 26, I was incorrectly quoted as saying, “…I was a good ol’ boy,” who wanted to return to the “good ol’ days.”
