It is sad that the local GOP has fallen to the level it has. Principles do not matter. The local chairman can be chairman and also be the treasurer of a candidate in a GOP primary. A paid GOP consultant can partner with a liberal Democrat and still be the darling of the GOP. Manipulation is alive and well in the local GOP. This may explain the rise of Independents and the Tea Party.

While many may disagree with Commissioner Skillern, there is no doubt he has helped this community with no personal gain. Most likely he has suffered business losses because of his community service. The fear the public should have today is that many step into public life in order to seek personal gain. Commissioner Skillern was a success before he went into public service. Thank you for this editorial.

One thing everyone overlooks is that the owner of the property can already build on this site. At least he is bringing the development to the table for public input. He could have cleared the hillside and asked no one. just a thought to consider. It could be worse.
I am constantly amazed at the individuals who post with complete knowledge of who the 'power structure' wants in office. Could it be they are part of the effort to place a particular candidate in the position?
In my opinion, the saddest part of this discussion is that the public career of Judge Durby has not been recognized. He should be praised for his lengthy service to the community. I for one appreciate him.
Truly find this hard to believe. She has some great ideas. She deserves a chance.
Tremendous editorial which sums problems in our local political landscape. These things must stop or the citizens will continue to have not trust in local elected offials.
Most likely the best cartoon ever published in TFP.
