Category: Letters to the Editor

The Dakotan welcomes the opinions of our readers in the form of letters to the editor, as long as the submissions are not in bad taste and refrain from attacking individuals without supporting documentation or a rational and legally defensible justification.

We reserve the sole discretion to decide whether or not a submission will be published. If your letter is selected, we will only publish it once.

All letters to the editor must include complete name, address, and telephone number for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be accepted.

We reserve the right to edit letters for the sake of grammar, spelling, and potentially libelous statements. This does not mean all letters are edited — most probably won’t be, but at The Dakotan, we reserve that right.

We currently have no word limit on letters we will publish. However, please bear in mind: the briefer the better. It takes more time and effort to write a good, brief letter than to write a long, rambling one. A focused, brief letter is more likely to attract and keep readers and is therefore more likely to get published.

Lastly, The Dakotan will not publish any political campaign endorsement letters.

Readers can contact Editor Nicole DesRosier by email at [email protected]

Letter to the Editor

In response to Shane McLoughlin's letter to the editor. He seems like a nice man and sincere about his comments but 10 years in Minot doesn't come close to the Midwest Federal Building, that's the period of time it was closed. Let me explain. I came to Minot in 1958…

Letter to the Editor

In Support of the County Commissioners, I read Duane Brekke's letter to the editor on April 27, 2022 and felt a response was necessary. I have lived in Minot for over ten years, in North Dakota for nearly twenty years of my adult life and having grown up on a…

Letter to the Editor

For many years we have had a county commissioner know by many probably the most negative to ever serve as commissioner. As a farm boy, I appreciate good farm-to-market roads. His ideal is a paved road from his farm house to the elevator. He has never cared about Minot (I’m…

Letter to the Editor

The political class is up in arms over a proposed ballot measure to limit the terms of the governor and state legislators.  First, they derided the concept as flawed and told us that the ballot box is how we limit their time in office.  Now, the offices of the secretary…

Letter to the Editor

I can’t say thank you enough… Our campaign earned the support of 46% of the NDGOP State Convention vote against the most popular politician in modern North Dakota history. This was done on a shoestring budget through grassroots supporters of all stripes across our great state. We ran a campaign…

Letter to the Editor

I have a confession to make… I didn’t expect to win the election on Saturday to chair the ND GOP convention. Why? I didn’t campaign, only a few knew I was going to have my name placed in nomination and I arrived at 10:50 a.m. (It started at 11:00 a.m.)…

Letter to the Editor

Biden's solution to gas prices: "Under my plan, which is before Congress now, we can take advantage of the next generation of electric vehicles, that a typical driver will save about $80 a month from not having to pay gas at the pump."So allow me to break that baby down…

Confessions of Modern Day Patriot I have a confession to make: I haven’t always been a Republican. It was my senior year in high school. The year was 1976. Jimmy Carter was running for President. Being the democrat I was raised, and the bleeding heart that cries at movies, I…
