WITH THE PRIMARY ELECTION ABOUT SIX WEEKS OFF FOR A COUPLE OF RACES–THE CIRCUIT COURT CLERK AND THE COMMONWEALTH ATTORNEY–THE MOST PROMINENT, “FEELERS” ARE ALREADY AT WORK WITH VARIOUS CONTACTS; GETTING “THE LAY OF THE LAND” FROM VARIOUS SOURCES TO PERFECT THEIR GAME PLANS. BOTH OFFICES ARE BEING CONTESTED BY PEOPLE OF NOTE. BOTH SHOULD BE VERY INTERESTING.
THE CIRCUIT CLERK’S OFFICE IS BASICALLY A “PEOPLE” POSITION,DEALING IN RECORD KEEPING FOR THE DISTRICT AND CIRCUIT COURTS, AND ETC., MUCH IN THE MANNER OF THE COUNTY COURT CLERK.
THE COMMONWEALTH ATTORNEY’S OFFICE IS ALSO A PEOPLE POSITION, BUT BASICALLY DEALS WITH REAL OR ALLEGED CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. IN THE BOYD COUNTY CIRCUIT AND ,INDEED, BOYD COUNTY’S CAPITOL CITY, THERE IS WORK TO DO. PAST DUE.
BEING THE ULTIMATE DECIDERS, THE VOTERS WILL MAKE THEIR MARK.
BOTH POSITIONS ARE POSITIONS OF TRUST, CAPABILITY, WILLINGNESS AND DEDICATION TO THE JOB, …AND THE PROVEN EFFECTIVENESS OF THEIR EFFORTS IN THEIR IN THEIR PREVIOS TERM(S)
Securing the "right to vote" by the blood of our military, generation after generation since the shot fired at Concord, is only "their half" of the bargain. To complete "our half" of the same bargain, we must register to vote, and vote, and secure it for still unborned generations of Americans. Otherwise, why is American blood staining the mid and far East, Europe and Asia, and Africa and South America? Why indeed!
The least you can do, by registering and voting your own ballot, not the ballot of your friends, relatives, some corrupt politician you see only at "politicking time, and who does not know you until the next election.
The blood of hundreds of thousands of American "dead in combat" have earned far better, and their blood "demands" far better from each of you. Not a great demand of allegiance or money; just the simple, easy and effortless casting of a ballot, for those of your choice (not dictated, sold or bought, for which they gave their lives. Shame on any of you who do not honor in this small way "The Americans dead in combat."
