At least one candidate is willing to say where he stands on a few of the issues and what he wants to work on. The other just gives us the vague "I'm looking at the big picture. I'm going to run it like a business." And yet so many people eat that up. If you can choose who you're going to vote for based on just this then you're not looking any further than are they a democrat or a republican. I'd rather wait to hear what their actual plans for results are before making that decision instead of being set in my ways.

Long term vision will not get us as far as tax cuts!

Judeye-would you rather the man be up front with voters or wait until after the election? How is it you propose to pay/fund the CCH given the declining tax base? Simple question,a simple answer will suffice? I could vote for either man but I want a clear vision,not just rhetoric!

Well, since both candidates are going to run the county like a business, I'd guess we'll all be shipped to China soon? :)

Is anyone surprised by Judeye's choice. It's all blah blah blah. Typical political BS. If they really want to turn this County around they should be talking about how to reform Welfare and Medicaid. The welfare to work program is a joke. If you had W to W workers experience you know the reality of it. If you want to make the program work when they are welfare to work participants the next step is that job....NO MORE WELFARE!! NOW INELIGIBLE for WELFARE. Not welfare to work so you don't get thrown off welfare. Spend a minimal amount of time working(I use the term loosely)and say I can make more on welfare.....see ya!!! I am not impressed with either candidate. Neither one will make great strides in changing this welfare magnet county.

Not even elected and one candidate already looks at selling our County Home as a means to generate money?

So much for objectivity, looking at all the options, seeking alternatives, he has his mind made up even though our county legislation has voted AGAINST selling this HOME on more than one occasion.

We do not need any short term quick fixes that will last only until the money is spent (then what will they sell?)

No, We need someone with a vision. A candidate who will look at the long term needs of our County, like attracting not only jobs, but CAREERS to our area. This, to me, is how we truly build on our assets for a better future not only for us, but for our children and grandchildren.

We do not need short term fixes at the expense of our most vulnerable citizens. We need someone with long term VISION that sees our County as a place where companies and JOBS, good paying ones with benefits, can locate.

To me, the choice could not be clearer.
