Many of us have been paying close attention to the state-wide races, the ones getting large amounts of attention or even national attention. Today the spotlight shines on a Sussex County race, Recorder of Deeds.
Scott Dailey claims that he is running on John Brady’s record. In fact, Scott’s website is essentially a blog and has some great information on it.
According to Scott4Sussex.com the Recorder of Deeds office is making a little over $2,000,000 (considerably less than the $4,500,000 the office made in 2004). Scott seems to point to these numbers and blame John Brady for the office making less money.
Apparently, Scott Dailey “can do better” since he has “private sector experience in management”. This private sector experience includes no information regarding the “recession” or inflation. One would think the $2,300,000 difference in profit would have to do with the over 20,000 less documents recorded in 2009 than in 2004. Maybe Scott would have preferred a raise in the prices andfees associated with the office of Recorder of Deeds.
This writer knows very little about Scott Dailey. In fact, many know little about Scott Dailey. Scott preaches the “Tea Party” talking points yet hasn’t been seen at meetings. Scott also states on hiswebsite that “people should have the right to vote for MORE positions in government, not LESS”. Maybe this was poor sentence structure, but it seems that the Republican candidate for Recorder of Deeds is advocating larger government.
Much is known about John Brady however, and may be learned by watching the video below.
If there is one thing this writer has learned about politics over the past few years, it involves not voting for someone because of the letter next to their name. Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, or even Blue Enigma, if you are the right candidate for the job that is more important than being a member of any party.
I will not vote for someone I know nothing about simply because of the letter next to their name. One wonders whether Scott Dailey thinks being a Republican in 2010 will make up for his lack of experience.
