Really you guys?
Oh, my goodness….What has this community come to?
I have lived in this community for 32 years, and I have seen my share of uncomfortable/mean-spirited/nasty campaigns, but Roy Byrnes and Kim McCarthy, you take the cake.
For two people that claim to “care so much” about San Juan, thanks but NO thanks. I for one DO NOT want your type of “caring” in my life or in this community.
I was at the Republican Committee meeting Monday night Oct. 15, when Ms. McCarthy was admonished for her lies and total disrespect for the committee and the process. She was reminded that the committee was aware that “she had supported and contributed to other parties, while asking for the endorsement of this party.”
The chairperson of the committee informed the attendees “this committee was mislead from the beginning with untruths, misstatement of facts and exaggerations by McCarthy and Byrnes.”
You two were told by the committee “that your misconduct, lack of respect for the committee and lies were something the committee would not accept." The endorsement given to you two, by the committee was then revoked because of your actions.
There was a reason for that action by the committee, fellow San Juan residents. If shows us if they as candidates are willing to lie and be that disrespectful to get what they wanted from a committee which could give them the one word they sought – "endorsement" – what will they do to "earn" this community? Where does it stop?
Don’t you think you need to be responsible and take responsibility for your actions? You cannot possibly think that you are entitled to that kind of deception and not have to answer to anyone.
You do have to answer to the citizens of this town. Believe it or not, honesty, respect, concern and responsibility for actions is important or should be to all of us, and we should expect NO less than that.
