Side by Side, Atkins & Gardner

Atkins - Gardner

There really is just one choice, Chuck Atkins

  1. I agree with you Lew, Chuck is the man for the job. Chuck and his family used to be neighbors of ours, his kids played softball/baseball at the same field as mine. Chuck is a stand up kind of guy that goes out of his way to help others. He definitely gets my vote!

  2. I can’t figure out how an editorial board could endorse Gardner over Atkins. Even a board as biased and dysfunctional as at The Columbian should be able to see that Atkins is the better choice. I have nothing against Shane Gardner. I think he’s a fine man and a credit to the Sheriff’s Department, but for the Columbian to elevate the feel-good nebulous concepts of ‘ a holistic approach’, ‘proactive measures’ and ‘community policing’ over experience and sound judgment really baffles me.

    Their complaint that ‘Atkins not being endorsed by outgoing Sheriff Garry Lucas speaks volumes’ is obvious only if you don’t realize that Lucas has switched sides. Whether he’s still a registered Republican or not isn’t important. What is important is that he appears to have turned to the dark side. Pushing Home Rule and not endorsing a very qualified fellow Republican pretty well says it to me.

  3. Endorse Gardner?

    When was the last time they DIDN’T endorse the leftist in an open seat?
