DUMP GRIFFITH'S COLUMN
From: Ken Holniker Jr.
I do not understand The Carroll County Sun's attempt to resurrect Mr. Jeff Griffith as a viable politician. The electorate gave him a decent burial in November, and it seems that your newspaper is force-feeding the public with Mr. Griffith's views regarding his love for Gov. (William Donald) Schaefer and charter government. I assume he is positioning himself to run for county executive.
I do not think it appropriate for your paper to give potential candidates the space and opportunity to campaign indefinitely. Mr. Griffith's comic-strip style of writing is offensive to many readers, and his critical statements regarding Mrs. Gouge certainly reveals his sour-grapes mentality.
Most of the readers remember that famous dog who smelled out the real politician. He had no gripe and truly can be said to have acted impartially.
I suggest that you eliminate "the way it is" and make it the way it was.
