As I read my Saturday, May 31, copy of the Messenger, I stopped and pondered what they were trying to do with the long article on J.D. Clark.
Then I came to the conclusion that the power brokers in Decatur are trying to ram Clark down the voters’ throats as the new county judge.
For a newspaper that claims to represent all of Wise County, to pick one candidate and continually give him press coverage without offering the same opportunity to other candidates who are running to represent Wise County – it makes you wonder what they are after.
Was it because he is a teacher? If so, that is a slap in the face to all of the good teachers in our schools in the county, because he does not teach in Wise County. He teaches in Montague County.
Since he is quitting teaching, has someone promised him the job if he runs? And what do they have to gain?
Lots of unanswered questions that the voters should be asking the candidates that are on the ballot.
