Writer "Vehemently" disagrees with comment on Election Commission
web posted March 15, 2012
It amazes me that those screaming the loudest seem to be the least
informed on a subject. I read a Wandering
Minds comment from an
anonymous person posted on March 14, 2012. The poster stated, “And then
the election board didn't have, well you know, to file suit to appeal
the judges decision. Weak, weak leaders, board members, political hacks
in this county.”
They were talking about the Registration and Elections Commission for
Edgefield County and the Nathaniel Jackson matter of last year.
I vehemently disagree with the poster’s description of the Commission.
I find them to be genuine, hardworking individuals who take their
positions seriously. Yes, the Commission lost the Jackson matter before
the circuit judge. However, the Commission was not allowed by law to
the circuit court judge’s decision.
Section 7-5-250 of the SC Code of Laws only allows the individual
[candidate] to appeal a circuit court decision to the Supreme Court.
How does that make them weak or hacks?
Some people would rather try to make people look bad that to consider
The next time you see a Commission member, thank them for the job they
do. And thank them for following the law.
