I read with disappointment and saw, first hand, the recent
vandalism at the Obama campaign office in Elizabeth. I also
followed Sabrina Hurst’s suggestion of stopping by the Obama office
to express my opposition to what happened and to let all who would
listen know that we are still neighbors.
We are still neighbors in Elbert County following the election
and it is truly sad to see something like that happen. I believe
that respectable community leaders are part of both political
parties in the county and would not support in any way, shape, or
form anything like this to occur.
We’ve seen our share of Friday night juvenile related vandalism
in our subdivision over the years and I believe that’s what
happened here. I haven’t been involved in the Elbert County
political process long enough to know what the typical level of
antagonism has been between the parties. I do know that we on the
Republican side have had dozens of signs — both big and small —
damaged and stolen. Many of them have been on private property. We
have also had signs taken down, painted on to change the meaning,
and put back up in very derogatory ways.
On one hand, politics has no geographical boundaries and the
wrangling at the national and state levels and in other counties
permeate local viewpoints. However, it would be great if things
were truly “different” in Elbert County during elections and we
somehow attained a mutual level of respect in the future.
