THE PEOPLE SPEAK - County does not need Plunkett

As it pertains to one Speck Plunkett, who is running for the Muskogee County Board of Commissioners, I don't see that we need such a racist bigot handling the people’s business. If he is elected, I intend to resign my post, as I will refuse to do business with him — just as I don’t do business with his county tax board. He brings a bad atmosphere. When I am at his tax board meetings, I get the feeling I am at a Klan meeting. The atmosphere comes across just that racist.

Have you noticed that every time I am presented as a villain in your local newspaper, Speck Plunkett is presented as the savior. I am told that he knew for years that there were possible problems involving the Firefighter Safety Tax. But he chose to wait until he ran for county commissioner to try to correct the problem, just so he could get his name in the newspaper at the right time.

They have been talking about getting a grant to install more fire hydrants in the fire districts for the last two years. But he only now decided to go to the newspaper with it. I wonder why.
