Mark Hale: The big vote is behind us
' . . . I just want to thank everyone for keeping things civil during the whole process of the wet/dry vote. Both sides were argued in a professional way and while many of us are disappointed, the show goes on.' - MARK HALE
By Mark Hale
Well the big vote is behind us now. The most fair process has been exercised and the people have decided to make a change.
All of us can put this event behind us with our head high. The yes people got a big win and the no voters walk away with a clean conscience knowing they did all they could to do what they felt was right.
Those of you who were able to vote and did not should reconsider your actions and become a part of the process as voting is one of our freedoms we should all take part in every time. I'm starting to get used to losing my vote as I am a conservative and it seems everyone else thinks just the opposite from me. But I will not waiver.
This is the most heated political season I've ever seen. With candidates like Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, a self proclaimed socialist all having a good chance of becoming the President of the United States speaks volumes of the direction we are headed.
I can never remember riots breaking out at a place where candidates were speaking. Not in this country anyway.
Once again I am supporting the conservative in the race, Ted Cruz.
Looks like I might lose again.
Anyway, I just want to thank everyone for keeping things civil during the whole process of the wet/dry vote. Both sides were argued in a professional way and while many of us are disappointed, the show goes on.
Life goes on. This is still our county and our home.
I still love it here and will always call it home.
Thanks to Ed and CM for allowing a free medium for citizens to voice their opinions and ideas.
Shannon Sexton always conducted herself in a professional and respectable manner. She did a great job leading PAC, and may have a future as one of the leaders in our county.
(And her Mother told me to be nice to her.)
The local papers also played a big role in educating the citizens with articles and advertising. So thanks to everyone involved and let's continue to be involved in our counties future and stay involved in our duty as citizens to this great nation.
Remember, we have a primary election and a general election coming just over the horizon. Your vote counts. Be sure to VOTE. Thank you, - Mark Hale
