I am one of many that agree with David Dawson. The polls will have the last word. No more stonewalling.

The only issue that divides the candidates are those that want to do the right thing (sell the home) and those who want to keep the union happy (for campaign contributions).

Although I am a democrat, I couldn't agree with you more Mr Dawson. I understand why Mr Johnson has to support the home, but I think he is making a big mistake with many voters, both dem and rep. Just saying.

Legalize HEMP production and the TAXES accrued from the 'by-products',i.e. high quality paper,fabric ,rope,JOBS,industrial fibers,elimination of synthetics from coal and oil,filters etc.No environmental impacts,cheaper,cleaner and probably enough of a Revenue gleaner to unify Candidates and add bed space to the County Home on top.

The same can be said of the legislature and county clerk candidates. One candidate for each office supports keeping the county home government owned at a cost of over $3.2M per year.
