A vote of confidence for Kelsen Young

Letter to the editor
2012-10-10T00:00:00Z A vote of confidence for Kelsen YoungBy Ken Toole Helena Independent Record

I’m supporting Kelsen Young for our representative in House District 80. Kelsen has the energy and experience to do a great job in the state legislature. She has worked tirelessly to stop domestic violence in our state and has shown the kind of dedication we need in our representatives. Equally important she shares the values and concerns of the people of Helena.

Most of us watched the last session of the Legislature in disbelief. We saw the wacky right wing of the Republican Party take control. We need people who care about good government and who are willing to stand up to the zealots who were in charge last session. I’m confident that is exactly what Kelsen Young will do and that is why I am happy to support her to represent us in the Legislature.

    Sounds like your votes are already decided, too, caribouboy. Is that all you've got?

    Wacky = Ken Tool.

    Talk about the double whammy. When Ken Tool and Christine Kaufmann write letters supporting you in the same week, you know Kelsen Young's votes are already decided. Kelsen will kowtow to Tool and Kaufmann in every way possible.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
