Letter: Current Sheriff not an incumbent (May 11, 2022)

Editor:

In regard to the election story beginning on the bottom of the front page of the April 4 issue of The New Era, the reference describing Sheriff Michelle Duncan as an incumbent was wrong.

This flies in the face of what this country stands for: We are a nation of laws, not of men. The last Sheriff, as an act of feel-good-ism, gave this position away.

This person should be called “appointee,” not “incumbent.”
