Clinton Mayor Runs for State Senate; Clinton Resident gets Selfish

You may have noticed last week that Clinton Mayor LaMetta Wynn declared her candidacy for a seat in the State Senate. She is trying to unseat incumbent Democrat Roger Stewart. Details of her announcement can be found in this article from the Clinton Hearld publisned last Friday. I have never met the woman, but it seems she is well liked, perfectly capable, and very ambitious about taking the seat.

That is why I was disturbed today to read this letter from a concerned citizen. First the writer sings her praises, then questions the Mayor's motives. I hate it when people do this. It reminds me of our recent past when Congressman Nussle said he would be leaving his seat in Congress to run for Governor. Even though no one dusputes Nussle would be a fully capable Governor, so many complain about his choice out of their own selfishness. Never mind that it is the candidates' lives that are effected by their own choices. Just as Jim Nussle does, Mayor Wynn understands the pros and cons of her contest if she is as wise and capable as the writer leads us to believe in the opening paragraphs.

Please let our good public servants make their own decisions...don't hold back good talent and ambition by expecting these people to remain in the same positions forever.
