A government should be of the people and by the people

Jacksonville Daily Progress

CHEROKEE COUNTY — Well,  “the powers that be” in Cherokee County have been in office for nearly twelve years now, including “the leading good old boy” of them all.  Are we any better off as a county now than we were twelve years ago when they took over? 

I am told we have the lowest per capita income of any county our size in the state except for two down in the Valley.  Some have defined “insanity” as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. 

Isn’t it time to move Cherokee County in the 21st century and bring some good jobs here?  It seems twelve years is long enough to figure out whether they are succeeding in helping to make the lives of our citizens better.  Isn’t it time to get back to government of the people, by the people and tor the people right here Cherokee County?  Just asking!
