The letter mainly slams Bruce Pinckard. Could it really be from someone running against Bruce? From what I know, the letter is full of half-truths and misstatements. I’ve talked with Bruce many times. He’s always been open and willing to talk to me. We didn’t always agree, but we both understood from where the other was coming. That says a lot about a person right there.
The letter also slams Chuck Sheridan. I’ve known Chuck for years. He is one of the finest people I know or you could meet. He is nobody’s puppet or yes man. Plain and simple.
I don’t have a vote in this election. However, I also don’t like to see good people get wrongfully hammered and that is the reason for this letter. The letter did get one thing right. There are good and bad people in this. It just got it wrong as to who they are.
The letter talks about “illegal” activities, but who is currently being illegal in this campaign? Misrepresented letters, Election Code 15 Sec. 255.004. Misplaced signs, transportation code chapter 255 sec. 255.007. Signs can’t be in the right-of-way of roads. Missing required legal statements on signs, Election Code 15 sec. 255.004. Legal statement on signs on where signs can’t be placed.
Folks, take a minute and think about this. Do you want to elect people who are currently being deceitful, dishonest and already doing illegal things (i.e., fake letters, illegal signs, sign placements)? Add that to just flat out trying to buy the election or using it as a stepping stone for other things. Or do you want people who are truly there for the community. People that are giving up their time with their families to try and make it a better place.
