Courage is a must when running for office

March 29, 2012

By Butch Morris

Fifty four people signed in at last Friday’s meeting. A good turnout. We had 5 of the 6 Sheriff candidates on our agendas. The candidates introduced themselves and took questions submitted from the floor. The candidates who participated in our forum were: Dan Breshears, Keith Mack, Terry Duncan, Calvin Smith and John Arthur.

Fred Kimball brought us up to speed on water related issues.

A quick comment on running for public office. Candidates must have courage. They must be willing to put themselves up to public scrutiny. They must have a desire to serve the public. The key word here is serve. Often public service is thankless. Particularly when people cannot see exactly what you’ve been or are doing. The “If I can’t see it, it isn't happening: attitude.

At any rate there are those of us who appreciate your willingness to run for office. I know that only one can win but good luck to all and thank you.
