It’s time for the voters to decide–Source: Wilson Times (Editorial page will sit out the process of making endorsements.) I wonder why?

On Tuesday voters in Wilson County will be asked to make choices about who will lead this community in key local elected offices and who will represent it in important state and national offices. That civic act is the bedrock of democracy, and we urge residents to go to the polls and make their voices heard. It is a critical responsibility. (Read more)

Note: As a paid subscriber to this paper online and has been over the years, I find this editorial to be quite interesting. I understand you feel as if you have done enough but I feel that sitting out this this year’s election sort of stink. I don’t have to spell it out why I believe it stinks because it should be obvious.

Since Calvin Woodard ran as a Democrat and no other political parties chose to run, the people spoke during the May primary. The Tea Party has ran candidates against other Democrats however they obviously were so sure that Gay would get in that they didn’t run anyone. But why? They were afraid to go after him? So then Farmer switched parties and connected with the Tea Party.

Again I feel that because of the climate in Wilson and all the work you have done, that is all the more reason to endorse candidates. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

Tune In To The DCN TV To Watch The Wilson County Sheriff Debate Featuring Calvin Woodard And John Farmer, Woodard Smoked Him

Click on picture to watch video.
Sources tell The DCN that John Farmer is telling folks that he won the debate. With all due respect to Farmer I must disagree. Calvin Woodard was very professional while it appears that Farmer was not ready for the debate.

Watch it for yourself and you can make your own decision, however I feel strongly that you will agree with me.
