Yet my opponent in the upcoming commissioner election, Chris Richardson (a 5-year EC resident sporting an endorsement by Robert Rowland) writes about our "positive fiscal outlook....with no worries," about "individual departments working together," and about the benefits of "leasing vehicles." Somehow these comments don't jive with the present situation.
Richardson also states that critics of our county are only "invested in the past." Perhaps he needs a reality check, perhaps he needs to listen to the financial experts waving the warning flags, or perhaps he needs to exit the good ol' boy crowd.
And perhaps the citizens of Elbert County need to realize that more-of-the-same won't fix what ails us.
