Jim Luke or Sara Bell, what a choice, I guess Jim was the least of two evils

Sarah was the only BOC candidate who was against the TSPLOST. I voted for her. She may not be perfect but she obviously wants to stop the runaway beast. She seems to be for personal responsibility too, which I really like. Oh well, I tried. A toast to David Anglin (non-partisan), a darn good man and a credit to Oconee County.
