Our cup runneth over

Hello Brian:

Thank you for the’ amusing piece you did on The Secret Tearoom [“A tale of Two Tearooms”; Nov. 1, 2006; by Brian Clarey], it was entertaining and positive. Come by and see us again.

Historical kudos

Great job on the top ten [“YES! Weekly’s Ten Best Shady Elections”; Nov. 1, 2006; by Jordan Green]. I think you did an excellent job compiling the list as well as providing adequate descriptions of each election. I am glad that you put Hayes in there. In my mind, only Bush/Gore beats that election.

Thanks for being inclusive and fair.

Thank you Guilford County for your support and for giving me the opportunity to go back to Raleigh as your representative. I look forward to next year’s session and the ever-evolving task of crafting the brightest future for both North Carolina and Greensboro. Thanks again to my supporters, my constituents and my opponent, who was gracious throughout the whole process and never let our contest devolve into a mudslinging contest. I often hear that politicians only listen just before and during election season, but I want to let you know that I am always available to try to answer your questions about local issues and state government.

Fast feedback

I am the cooridinator with the Blake congressional campaign. Amy Kingsley was reporting on the race [see “The forgotten Democrat”; p. 12; by Amy Kingsley]. I just wanted to take the time to thank you at YES! Weekly. Her articles were fair and unbiased. I have never been a fan of the press nor have I ever fully given attention to the press because of a biased view in Davidson County. However I was amazed at how open your reporter was and how objective she looked at the race. We didn’t win, but I wanted to take the time to thank you. I was never a reader before, but now I look for your paper and can’t wait to read the next article.

With much thanks,

Travis Gaddy
