Writer claims, "A Chitty Memory"
posted October 28, 2008
Up until a couple of weeks ago it was noticed there weren’t any Scott
Chitty campaign signs. That was thought to be quite odd. Then it
hit. Maybe Chitty was intuitive enough to see that his
re-election to the Edgefield County School Board was not going to
happen. Could he really be that smart? Guess not. If he were, Chitty
would have done for the people, and not himself or the Bishops.
Now Chitty obviously does not have too good of a memory, matter of
fact, maybe he has a Chitty memory.
You see, historically, the Merriwether District generally elects
someone that, like all politicians, say they are for the people.
However, once this community catches on and sees the self-serving,
serving one’s self, the get rid of them. In the past 15 years we have
had Hazel Kitchens as County Council. She became self-serving and
out she went. Then we had ole Danny Bishop. Not much of a choice, but
we could get rid of Kitchens and we did. Soon enough, Danny Bishop
showed his self-serving colors. Even more than that, Danny didn’t
even live in the district, implied, and most believed, he was Clemson
Alumni, tore down opponents campaign signs, and on, and on, and
Well, we did it again, we tossed him out once and rejected a
re-election attempt. Then came Joel Hudson. Nothing much to say
there, but again we saw the feckless type of public servant that have
long plagued this side of the county, but, we do throw them out. And
now Chitty. Self-serving, feckless, beholden to the Bishops, complicit
in running Fox Creek High School into the ground, and on, and on, and
on. Guess what. Out he goes. This community is tolerant, but
surely does not have a Chitty memory.
Remember-to vote for a school board member YOU HAVE TO SPLIT your
ticket. School Board members are not party affiliated. If you
don’t SPLIT YOUR TICKECT, you’re not voting for a school board member.
Voting a straight ticket and then voting will omit not only school
board races but also two Constitutional Questions and the Local
Question on Four year terms for County Council members. You can vote a
straight ticket and then move on in the ballot to the nonpartisan races
and referendums before confirming your votes.
