This is a repost from a few years ago that needs to be reiterated to plenty of voters in Guilford County. If you don't know the candidate, or haven't done the research to find out about the candidate, then your best bet is to not vote for them or the position. Because this is what happens below. This was not a shining monent for voters in Guilford County.
Scott Yost from the Rhino Times reports more on the interesting saga of the Guilford County Soil and Water Supervisor with a fake name, CLICKHERE or click on the title above.
Here is the first paragraph from this post by Scott Yost,"The man who ran in and won the Guilford County Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor race in the November 2008 election did so under a fake name: "Kirk Perkins," the winning candidate, is actually a transient whose real name is Kirk Newell."
There was an earlier post on Triadwatch on this issue: CLICKHERE
Does anyone see how this makes Guilford County voters look? As a voter, to know that just doing a little research could have prevented this from happening, or if you just took my advice back on October 29, 2008 on Triadwatch CLICKHERE with the title named "Found A Soil and Water Candidate to Vote for in Guilford County" , this could have been averted.
Let's try a new tactic in any upcoming election. If you don't know who to vote for, please don't vote in that race at all, or you might just end up with this as your representative on any board or commission.
If information comes in on how to let the state board know that Andrew Courts needs to be appointed to the commission, it will be updated.
