Saturday morning rambling: 3 Reasons in 3 Days

Posted on

Just three reasons in three days  why Delaware County has such a bad reputation.

In this article, the Mayor of Muncie has his superintendent report on a grant error.  The mayor goes on to lie about it. Why would a candidate running for county commissioner, Duke Campbell, try to remove grant funding for a county he was looking to serve?  He was told to do it, that’s why.  Will he serve at the pleasure of the mayor or the pleasure of the people?  A political stunt with the potential to backfire.

City told state the of an error to jeopardize grant funding

A day or so earlier, this article appeared about the voter registrations investigated by the Indiana State police.  I mean, 25% of the registrations were improper and it is considered a “small” amount.  Does anyone care about the integrity of our elections.

1 in 4 registrations rejected

In the third article, we find the city’s building commissioner is citing the GOP for campaign signs on their property.  Which depending on how you read State law it could be a violation.  However, the building commissioner, Craig Nichols, currently under investigation by the FBI, has been in this position for eight election cycles and never thought to violate the GOP until a few days ago.

Closing thoughts, can we just get through one local election without the very appearance of impropriety?
