Slabbed makes the following endorsements in the 2015 Mississippi Primary Election
The main one being to go vote on Tuesday. Even better would be to harass your registered but nonvoting friends to make sure they vote as well. With the various and sundry displays of disregard for their own constituents well chronicled on these pages and across the local media going back almost two years now, how anyone would stay home on Tuesday is mind boggling to me. As it stands currently convention wisdom is only two incumbent Supervisor stand a real chance at losing their jobs in Jackson County. A 60% turnout in Jackson County would be an incumbent supervisor’s worst nightmare in my opinion.
I’d also like to second the reader comment on the Supervisor McKay’s North Vancleave lake to vote in the GOP primary. Mississippi, just like the old days, is a virtual one political party state the only difference being the political party has changed.
A few announcements. In the course of doing some software upgrades I inadvertently cleared the moderation que so if you left a comment and it does not show up that would be the reason. Also to the nice person that stopped by a week or so ago I appreciate you coming by but the best way to get face time with me is by appointment. I manage two businesses and my scarcest commodity is time.
I’d like to thank those of you that took the time to send donations to the P.O. Box. I’ll disclose that the response has generated close to $1,000 though half was with one donor group. Year over year donations are down about $800 and that is not the because of a lack of a PayPal donate button, which I removed a bit over a month ago.
It would be misguided to not continue supporting Slabbed just because I unlocked the site as I’m still not satisfied with the top line in 2015 and that must change out of necessity. The next time Slabbed offers an electronic payment option the site will be behind a pay-wall. My overall goal is to spend less time engaging readers with fundraising in order to spend more generating content. Go forward content will have a stronger correlation to the geographic areas which support Slabbed New Media. Eighty percent of the donations sent last week were from Jackson/Harrison Counties. I’d like to see more reader support from Hancock County for a couple of reasons the main one being the news here is under reported in the local main stream media.
