White’s letter to PC’s comes in the last few days after Marion County Coroner has trotted out the endorsements of former Marion Democratic Party Chair Ed Treacy, former State Representative Bill Crawford, Marion County Auditor Billie Breaux, former City-County Councillor Joanne Sanders, and Marion County Sheriff John Layton. Layton even went so far to invoke Beth White’s name in his endorsement of Lloyd saying that he will carry on the legacy of White the best.
I think White would disagree if you read her letter. I can't post the whole thing here, but I can tell you that the endorsement of Eldridge by White was complete and talked of Eldridge's service to not only the voters of Marion County but the Democrats as well. "I encourage you to cast your vote for Myla Eldridge to be our slated candidate for Marion County Clerk. Here's why. For seven years, Myla has served our community, its voting citizens, and our Party -- first as Deputy Director of Elections then Director of Elections. Her tireless work to make sure our elections run smoothly and securely should earn her our undying gratitude."
I couldn't agree more with my friend Beth White. It’s been quite an odd run for Eldridge. Initially there was some speculation that City-County Councillor Leroy Robinson would enter the race for Clerk. He elected not to run. Lloyd entered the race in November.
Eldridge remains the most qualified candidate in the race for Marion County Clerk.
