Congratulations to ... Adams County.   [Opinion Piece by the Gateway News]

Congratulations are in order to the People of Adams County for your discernment in electing the right candidates. You voted not down party lines but along the lines of humanism, respect, and tolerance. Yours was a vote for the people and a vote against politics-as-usual cloaked in the campaign of ‘reform ’funded with money-as-usual. The size of campaign signs mattered little to you and so did vacuous degrees, credentials, and certificates. Instead, personal honesty and care for the community were given the clear vote.

 

All may be fair in love and war but fortunately not in Adams County campaigns.  For this, another "thank you," Adams County.  Let those whose attacks on our newly elected officials be remembered for their relegation of business mogels, television inquisitions, and campaigns hinged on disparagement of others and ad hominem attacks.   

To remain a county "for the people" we must not tolerate attacks "by the people" running for office. Thank you again, Adams County, for knowing the difference and having the courage to do something about it.  You, "the people", are the real winners.   

Congratulations to Chaz Tedesco, Eva Henry, and the remainder of your choice candidates.  We know that all candidates worked hard to get what they deserved.
