Pittman’s scheme an insult to the taxpayers

May 15, 2013

On Tuesday night, some members of the West Point Board of Selectmen crossed that fine line between utter incompetence and gross absurdity.
We’ve seen this board pull some in the past, but Tuesday night’s motion by Ward 5 Selectmen Jasper Pittman, which called for the city to retain an attorney who would be tasked with looking for improprieties in the May 7 election is not only absurd but in this editor’s opinion is an insult to the taxpayers of the community.

Fuller will be missed

May 9, 2013

I would like to take a moment to thank Mrs. Wendy Fuller, our former Clay County Election Commissioner for all of the hard work and years she has put in with the county.
On Thursday morning, the Clay County Board of Supervisors voted to dismiss Fuller as an Election Commissioner. The vote was 3-2.
The board had a tough job to do, and they did it the best way that it could have been handled.
The circumstances surrounding Fuller’s dismissal should not blemish her overall record of service to the citizens of Clay County.
