Thank you to the thousands of community members who are supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Through March 23, come out and brave the wintry weather as more than 2,500 Girl Scouts sell those amazing cookies from community booths.
Small business owners are lucky to have Sen. Mike Crapo looking after their interests in Washington. He’s led the way in reducing or eliminating Obama-era regulations and supports the Trump administration’s efforts to cut oppressive rules.

Tommy Ahlquist has been a dear friend of mine for over twenty years. I’ve known Tommy as a medical resident, a doctor, a civil servant, an entrepreneur and a family man. I admire Tommy because through all our experiences in medical residency and starting a businesses together, family has alw…
Nearly 15 years ago, my daughter, Angie Leon, was shot and killed by her estranged husband. Three weeks shy of her 22nd birthday, my daughter was taken from me and her three children. For the rest of our lives, we’ll be the victims of this senseless crime.
Hooray for Raul Labrador who has an economic development plan that will eliminate barriers for businesses in Idaho.
To the Editor:
The State’s tax on groceries should be removed during the 2018 Legislative Session. You might remember in 2017 when the majority of both the House and Senate passed legislation to repeal the grocery tax and tax credit starting in summer 2018. Governor Otter sidestepped the Legislature with a…
I am Zoe Kenney, and I have been part of the Planned Parenthood volunteer force for about six months. I was excited to come to the Idaho Statehouse and talk about complex issues facing our state today. I chose to talk to my legislators about Add the Words Idaho, and spent upwards of six hour…
While reading Early Pitch, Friday, January 12, 2018 featuring six 1st Congressional District Republican candidates, some things were glaringly obvious. The non-career Army Veteran candidate, Nick Henderson should be the obvious choice. The political bull shines bright coming from our other f…
I encourage the support of the Linder Village project at the corner of Linder and Chinden Blvd. One of my main reasons to support this project is that I have learned that the Developer is going to foot the bill to expand Chinden Blvd to 5 lanes from Linder to Meridian Rd. I know that the tra…
Linder Village: As Meridian plans and works to accommodate its rapid population growth, there are many opportunities for private development to catalyze the much-needed infrastructure improvements that make the area more livable than ever before.
I want to express support Marsy’s Law for Idaho and its goal of strengthening crime victims’ rights. For the last 20 years, I’ve worked directly with crime victims, specifically in Canyon County. I’ve seen first-hand the challenge many victims have navigating our legal system trying to pursu…
As a 41-year resident of the only property directly adjacent to the proposed WinCo store in the Linder Village. I SUPPORT approval of this development.

Last week the Meridian Press ran letters from some readers on the topic of making Meridian smoke free in businesses as well as a poll from the group SmokeFree Idaho. This week the Meridian Press would like to run a response from Mayor Tammy de Weerd on the topic of smoking in Meridian.
We moved here from not California. Have been here eight years; pretty much enjoy it. One thing we really would like to see built is a casino. When we tell people they roll their eyes and say there’s Jackpot. Yes. We have gone many times and noticed most plates down there are 1A. We are baby …
We are thankful for community’s support of the Meridian Library
I strongly agree with Mr. Zaremba and Mr. Cavener. It is time we dog owners have a decent and safe dog park to use. I currently drive to the Nampa Dog park several times a week. Why can Nampa have a fun and safe environment for our furry friends, yet Boise and Meridian can’t figure out how t…
My husband, Stephen Warren, is a humble man, so he doesn’t speak much about the extra things he does for our community. He says “it’s my obligation as a business leader.” I want to point them out so Meridian really knows the kind of person he is.
I am the director of the Meridian Senior Center. Joe Borton has been our attorney and supporter for several years. Joe is a very genuine man who helps our seniors with legal inquiries every month.
I support Patrick Malloy for Meridian City Council Seat 2. I have known him for several years and urged him to run for City Council, as he shares my concerns over the ever-expanding regulations and fees that make starting and growing business difficult and expensive.
Meridian Firefighter Local 4627 has endorsed Luke Cavener for City Council. Out of the 17 candidates on the ballot for the Nov. 5 election, the firefighters chose Mr. Cavener as their sole endorsement.
Meridian is one of the best cities in the country to raise a family or start a business.
I recently met Russ Joki when he personally came to my door. I was impressed with his passion for our community, honesty and personable presence.
David Moberly, candidate for Meridian City Council’s Seat 6, is a man of integrity, honesty and high moral character. Most importantly, he has a vision for the future of our community and the personal drive to see it come to fruition.
I have had the opportunity to work with Genesis Milam on a professional level, and she has always conducted business in a fair and ethical manner.
I see in your article in the Meridian Press on March 8 that “The services that have stirred dissent nationwide have been abortion-related. Glundberg-Prossor said the Meridian location has not received any complaints.”
