In Camden, as much as any place on Earth, who a candidate is kin to (or not) is always germane to their suitability for office. All native candidates should come in for the strictist scrutiny in that regard.For decades this county has elected and reelected good old boys and girls who were never qualified to hold the office they served.
We have elected officials removed from office that should be doing jail time.
We have a county commision that continues to pay $94,498.56 to the JDA Executive Director who has produced nothing for years except colorful pipe dreams.
Transparency not slander is whats required of these people so we can elect the most qualified person and get our county finally moving forward.
Gratuitous slander of the candidate or his/her relatives is never called for but remember, the truth is an absolute defense against both libel and slander.
Dispositive revelation is aboslutely appropriate and vitally necessary to perform voter due dilligence.
