Source: The Corydon Democrat

I am not concerned how long people have been in office. It is profoundly stupid to simply say someone has been in office too long. If they are doing a good job, they will get my vote to get another term. However, if someone has only recently been elected and they are doing a bad job, I will consider the challenger and if they are credible, I will vote that person out of office. I hope all voters will evaluate candidates in each individual race and choose the best person for the job. I am very disappointed the GOP Chair is seeking to bring the same dirty politics we see in Washington into our local poltics. However, his tactics have been very successful and Democrats seem to roll over and play dead when it happens rather than fight back. I wish all the parties and candidates would get together and declare a truce on all the negativity and character assassination so we can discuss the issues. That would be really refreshing as a voter. Maybe the Corydon Democrat could moderate the parties and candidates agreeing to a clean campaign pledge.
