Mr. Armer and Mr. Jenkins have recently told the Roundup all about their qualifications and that they support Mr. White because they know him personally but don't address his actual qualifications.
Mr. Armer and Mr. Jenkins each have commendable back rounds and are to be appreciated and congratulated for their service to our country and community. I too served our country and communities including first as a Marine in Viet Nam for 19 months from 1967 thu 1969. But all of that is frankly irrelevant since none of us three is running for a political office.
It appears that Mr. White can't quite find his own tongue in this debate. He wont speak with the Roundup or that other paper. Why? Isn't the issue of common sense a valid one? Yesterday, a well dressed young boy about Mr. White's sons age came to our door with an middle aged man spreading the gospel message according to the teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses. The older man was present to protect the younger. Now that showed common sense.
Qualifications for the position of constable are minimal. Mainly all one needs to do is be of a minimum age and have a heart beat to qualify. So we're all left to compare qualifications of each candidate side by side. Except that Mr. White hasn't given the electorate enough information to evaluate him fairly against the qualifications of the other candidates.
Finally, an issue which should concern every voter and which jumps right out there is, where are the monies coming from that allows Mr. White to conduct such a juggernought of a campaign which is virtually steam rolling over the other candidates. Are these funds, Mr. Whites personal funds (the rich man question) or are they coming from individual contributors or are the coming from an organization.
Now is the time for Mr. White to answer these questions himself as we approach the election deadline. Mr. White, talk to us.

I normally don’t write to the newspaper, but the letter from Sterling Lanphear upset me to the point I just had to answer his remarks.
