To vote for Judge Henry ...

My vote for Mark Henry would depend on him telling us how he is giving full-time administrative and executive service for the $160,000 he receives from us, while he is obligated by the state to spend 40 percent of his efforts on court duty to receive an extra $15,000 bonus from state tax money.

While neither the county nor the state requires verification of this mandated distribution of his effort, and even though that courtroom role allows him to shield his records, I trust he will assure us in a forthcoming way that managing our county receives his full attention, despite the mathematical dilemma.

I am also certain he likes to alleviate any concern about the large amount of outside financial campaign supporters, some of whom may hope to be considered when the county acquires services.
