Mark Hale: Regardless of outcome, no need to get upset
'My purpose of this post however is to say that no matter the outcome this is still our county. No matter the outcome we should not get upset if we lose our vote.' - MARK HALE
By Mark Hale
I have already commented on my thoughts on this issue so that is not the intent of this post. I wanted to respond briefly to letters written to the local papers.
It seems to me, while this is a most passionate issue from both sides, people are really vocal and somewhat upset that this is even up for a vote.
The yes folks think it should automatically already be available because it's legal elsewhere.
The no folks think since we're already dry it should stay that way. Well, I don't mind saying that my absentee vote was cast Thursday for a no.
My purpose of this post however is to say that no matter the outcome this is still our county. No matter the outcome we should not get upset if we lose our vote.
This process is the absolute best way to settle this matter.
The people of this fine county are the voice on this issue. Everyone that is able to vote needs to make every effort to let their voice be heard through the ballot box. Think of it as the side you are opposed to will be voicing their opinion, it's up to me to cancel their vote out.
I can't think of a more local election and a topic that involves every citizen more than this topic. Your vote will count, IF YOU VOTE.
Friends and neighbors remember regardless the outcome, this will not be the end of our future.
Please don't be consumed with bitterness toward another citizen. If I lose my vote, I will still love Adair Co and the people that call it home.
I will still be proud to call this wonderful place my home. Thank you for your time. - Mark Hale
