I received the March 20 Herald and read the Readers Forum with great interest. I do not know letter writers Richard Warren or Kelley Hawkins, but I was very interested in what they had to say.

As a Franklin County resident, I have been a little upset with some of the happenings in the county clerk’s office. I do not know the clerk personally, but really was unhappy to hear she might sue the county. Come on, lady, get a grip.

Now, for something I do know.

I do know Janet Paddock. She is a very intelligent, educated and a likeable person. I have known her mother and stepfather for many years. They are about as fine of people as anyone could possibly want to be around and have as friends — good, hard-working Americans.

It is my personal opinion that it is about time for a change in the county clerk’s office. The people of Franklin County deserve good county officials. I believe Paddock would make a good county clerk. Regardless of what political party you belong to, please get out and vote. This year definitely is a year everyone should vote.
