Conklin articulate

We’re not sure what candidate forum Mr. Somerville attended on Friday, but the candidate forum we attended on Friday must have been different. At that forum, Mr. Conklin introduced himself, spent no more than 20 seconds addressing The Union’s daily editorial, and then proceeded to make a clear statement on his qualifications and positions.

Even though we might disagree with some of his positions, in our opinion he was the most knowledgable, articulate candidate at that forum, including the candidates from the other district.

We are hopeful that The Union editorial and management staff will return to helping this county find solutions, not create problems and encourage conflict.
