Submitted by Bart Connelly


    My name is Bart Connelly and I am announcing my candidacy for the Pickens County District 1 County Commissioner seat in the May 20 Republican Primary.
    My wife Cindy and I have been married for 39 years and we have lived in the Jerusalem Community for the past 14 years. We have two children and three grandchildren.

    I was blessed to be able to retire three years ago after spending 33 years in the construction industry. Prior to that I earned a Master’s degree in Education from West Virginia University and prior to that I received the Eagle Scout Award through the Boy Scouts of America.
    I have been a member of the Pickens County Republican Party for the past 10 years and currently serve on the Executive Board as the vice chairman for Precinct Development. I am also a member of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Auxiliary Unit; member of the Board of Directors for Keep Pickens Beautiful serving as the chairman for the Adopt-A-Road program; member of the Pickens County Board of Assessors; and member of the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce.
    We attend Our Lady of the Mountains Roman Catholic Church where I am currently the president of the Men’s Club and a member of the Knights of Columbus.
    My objectives as District Commissioner would be to maintain an open and transparent government, to be a fiscal watchdog of the peoples’ money, to make common sense decisions and to be fair and honest to all the citizens of Pickens County.
    I look forward to meeting and talking to as many of you as I can during this campaign, and I am asking first for your  prayers and then for your support to become District 1 Commissioner. Should you wish to contact me, my phone number is 770-296-4640. May God bless us all.

That's a rather extensive list of memberships. That leads me to believe you will be way to busy dealing with all the other things you have on your plate including the vile racist group of The Knights of Columbus, which is nothing short of a group of individuals who oppose equal rights for gays and African-America ns. How can you represent the people when you won't represent them equally? Sorry but in this case you won't be getting my vote, you don't even have my respect.
