Wow ... did you guys ever miss the mark. I’m referring to the Our Voice regarding the Franklin County Clerk race on Sept. 30. It amazes me that your editorial board actually used Mike Killian’s service to this country as an excuse for favoring his opponent. Really? After reading your editorial, all I could figure was none of you could find a real reason for not endorsing him so you picked on his deployment. That’s just not cool. Like you said, things ran fine while he was deployed, so why pick on that?
Yes, he is an elected official, and one that was elected by his Franklin County constituents. And according to polls and the primary, apparently Franklin County voters, unlike the Herald Editorial Board, have no qualms with his service and job as county clerk. You’re pulling at straws, folks. If you’re going to endorse candidates, how about doing your homework and giving your readers a better reason for voting for or against someone? This was shoddy work at best.
