Reaction to three Jefferson County Democrats switching to GOP
JEFFERSON COUNTY - Statement from Jefferson County Tax-Assessor Collector Shane Howard about three Democrats switching to GOP:
"I'm excited about the announcement that Commissioner Weaver, Judge Burnett, and Judge Chesson are joining the Republican Party.
I've always maintained that the natural philosophical and political home for conservatives is the GOP and these three public servants have governed in a conservative manner. I welcome and encourage their collaboration.
Congratulations to them and to the Jefferson County Republican Party. It was my intent to stand with my colleagues in support, but regretfully I could not be present.
My full endorsement and enthusiasm for this news should be known and understood. I look forward to the coming elections and will be out in full force on behalf of good, limited, effective governance and the candidates who embody these values.
I look forward to seeing everyone soon. Congratulations again."
