• ENDORSEMENT REBUTTAL: Mulrain the best candidate for BOCC seat 2

    A couple of days before my editorial review I started my rebuttal letter. I am a 30-year resident, living at the same address and in the same district. Being such, the Chronicle’s endorsements are easily predictable.

  • ENDORSEMENT REBUTTAL: Corkery champions trade schools

    As a candidate for Citrus County School Board District 1, and as I stated at the various public forums, support of quality technical trade schooling within our public schools is a top priority of my campaign. 

    Editorial endorsements in the Chronicle depicting my opponent, Mr. Kennedy, as being a proponent of trade schools is somewhat out of place. Kennedy has sat on the board for four years, and I believe it’s a bit too late for Mr. Kennedy to be proclaimed an advocate for technical trades education. 

  • Thank you for your endorsement
  • Tourists see filth

    Fort Island Trail Beach Park in Crystal River is where many tourists go after seeing the manatees since tourists like to swim at a beach while in Florida. 

    On Aug. 18, the entire water’s edge of the beach was covered with dead grass, making a mat of filth inches thick. The Citrus County park service seemingly is no longer removing these mats of dead grass after the kids start back to school, since this same beach was clean and wonderful in July.

  • Negative campaigning hurts process
  • Wasting money on dirty campaigning

    I have just received the most recent robocall from Save Citrus County. I would like the people or person responsible for taking up space on my voicemail to know that not only have you wasted my time, but you have made my voting decision easier. I will go to the polls either during the early voting period or next Tuesday and vote for Winn Webb (don’t know yet if “JJ” Kenney is on my ballot). Your sense of what a voter wants is very misplaced. I think the type of politics you’re playing can easily be referred to as dirty and backstabbing.

  • A weird election
  • Elect Balfour to school board

    Sandy Balfour is an influential figure for many students and faculty among our county. She is a woman that is not forgotten. Through dedication, strong ground and exceptional passion for learning, Mrs. Balfour makes a strong candidate for any leadership position. I believe that our school system would benefit endlessly from having such a critical thinker on their team.
