The Marion County Clerk has such a wide and varied job. So many different responsibilities thrown under one office. Both Eldridge and Robinson would have their positives. Eldridge has the advantage of being the announced candidate and having done a major aspect of the job several times before. Robinson has the advantage of name recognition and having won a countywide election.
This would make an interesting slating battle if it holds and then who knows what might happen if one continues to the Primary. As I often say, it bears watching.
My apologies to both Myla and Leroy. I actually wanted this post to run on Tuesday, but I apparently incorrectly scheduled it with the Blogger interface (sometimes I write things ahead of time). That means that it ran on Monday instead. Neither candidate had a chance to respond to an inquiry by my own deadline of Monday evening. Again, my sincere apologies to both Myla and Leroy. I will gladly post any response to my inquiry to both candidates if they elect to respond.
Again, my apologies.
