With early voting in full swing, DMN revs up campaign to elect Lowell Cannaday

Posted on 28 Oct 2008 at 11:01am

The Morning News today continued what appears to be an unofficial series that might as well be titled, “Why you should vote for Republican Lowell Cannaday for sheriff.” Here we are, in the second week of early voting, and the newspaper felt compelled to publish on its front page this not-so-groundbreaking piece about an old topic — Commissioner John Wiley Price’s involvement in the jail. Of course, the goal of the article is to suggest that Price has gotten involved in jail matters because Sheriff Valdez can’t handle them herself. But the reality is, it makes sense for at least one commissioner to be closely involved with jail operations since it’s the county’s largest department and the Commissioners Court is responsible for the budget. Does anyone take The DMN seriously anymore?
