Our thoughts Too Much

The Covington News - - OPINION -

There is no ques­tion that through­out the last month there has been much po­lit­i­cal in­trigue, fin­ger point­ing, pun­ish­ments and re­voked pun­ish­ments, in our county lead­er­ship. The vote Tues­day night to re­in­state J.C. Henderson to all the po­si­tions that were stripped from him was a gen­eral sur­prise for many, but ac­cord­ing to county at­tor­ney Tommy Craig it was the right thing to do .

We can only hope that J.C. Henderson has been scared straight and will learn from this ex­pe­ri­ence that sid­ing with the high­est bid­der is not al­ways the most hon­or­able thing to do.

The other big news is that the 2050 Plan has been dealt a death blow. It seems a shame that af­ter 10 years of pro­gres­sive think­ing that this should hap­pen. We, again, hope that some­one has a plan that will lead the county down the road to growth and pros­per­ity be­cause if they don’t we are go­ing to con­tinue down the same dys­func­tional path we are on now.

We think it’s now time to let last month’s hos­til­i­ties go and al­low all of us that care about a pros­per­ous and pro­gres­sive city and county get back to work to­gether in or­der to in­sure that our com­mu­nity has a goal and a plan to see us down the road of a grand fu­ture for our­selves our chil­dren and our grand­chil­dren.
