Independent Editor,
A recent ad by County Clerk candidate Caroline Wilson states: “Remember to vote Aug. 2 on County proposals.” A Freedom of Information Act request made to the Owosso City Clerk reflects that over the past 11 years, Mrs. Wilson has not been a particularly good citizen herself. Since 2005, she has voted in only 11 of 26 elections.
This is not encouraging for a candidate who claims an interest in the election process and would like to manage it as clerk. The right to vote is a precious freedom which many have fought and died for. Anyone serious about governing should exercise that right at every opportunity. Mrs. Wilson has failed to respect her own right to vote. I will not vote for her to protect mine. I will vote to re-elect Lauri Braid as County Clerk.
“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves, and the only way they could do this is by not voting.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
