LETTER: Vote No on Measure 4
I feel that I must speak out in opposition to Measure 4, the initiated measure that would quintuple the tobacco tax in North Dakota. It is a noble goal to see smoking reduced in our state, but this isn't the way to do it. It may get a small percentage of the populace to give up...

Letter: Measure 4 doesn't have enough specifics
There are many things about Measure 4 that concern me. One of them is that the spending programs, which are very vaguely described, are locked in for seven years. So what happens if there are problems? What if there is actual fraud or abuse or waste?

Our View: A mixed bag on ND measures
Regarding the five measures on the North Dakota statewide ballot on Nov. 8: Constitutional Measure 1 requires members of the Legislature to live in the district they represent. This is little more than common sense. Vote "yes."

Letter: Government needs to get out of 'sin tax' business
It is my intention in writing this editorial so that all citizens can read this in all North Dakota newspapers. Citizens, please vote "no" on Measure 4 in the upcoming state measure voting. Slam the door shut to government control! It is nothing but a scam. But more importantly, a...

Letter: Trusting ND citizens: ‘No’ on 4, ‘Yes’ on 5
On this year’s state ballot, there’s no shortage of initiated questions demanding rejection, but none as richly deserving of a resounding “No” as Measure 4. In no uncertain terms, the arrogant legislators pushing Measure 4 are asking us: Are you voters too stupid and irresponsible...
