Grievances against Duke Schirard are petty

I see that the long knives of the left are out for Duke Schirard. These folks have concocted a brief list of petty grievances, none of which will withstand honest scrutiny. They apparently are prepared to overlook Schirard’s many years of quiet competence and major accomplishments (e.g., new jail on budget, vastly improved youth facility, successful outpatient programs and so on).

They have advanced a candidate who appears to have a pleasant personality, tracks well with their ideology and has a record of major accomplishments amounting to nothing. Now, according to Sean Smith’s signs, we are instructed to “expect more.” More? More what? Sounds a lot like hope and change to me.
