Choice is a good thing, especially at the voting booth.
Barrow County voters will have some choices to make when they vote in the Nov. 6 general election. (Early voting began Monday so the election is officially here.)
There will be a choice on the ballot for sheriff between incumbent Jud Smith and challenger James Scott. Some political observers locally don’t foresee the race being close. Regardless, voters have a choice and that is good. On a side note, this is really one of those elected offices which should be non-partisan.
Incumbent Steve Worley faces a challenge for his seat on the Board of Commissioners from Johnny Smith, a former commissioner, who is seeking to return to the BOC. Once again, voters have a choice and that can only be viewed as a positive thing.
