Give new coun­cil a chance to gov­ern

The Star Democrat - - OPINION -

The elec­tions are over. The per­sons elected are in of­fice be­cause the ma­jor­ity of vot­ers deemed them qual­i­fied. I’m per­plexed why any­one would con­sider a se­cret bal­lot for pres­i­dent and vice pres­i­dent of the county coun­cil a vot­ing bloc while not know­ing how ever yone voted. Fur­ther­more I’ve never en­tered a vot­ing booth with­out know­ing for whom I was vot­ing.

The only jeop­ardy we pos­si­bly face is the fur­ther erad­i­ca­tion of ci­vil­ity be­fore the new coun­cil takes ac­tion. So let’s sit back and give our newly elected of­fi­cials the chance to gov­ern. And if they don’t do a good job let the ma­jor­ity of the vot­ers “vote the bums out.”
