What about party loyalty?

What about party loyalty?

I was appalled when I read the article in the Vindicator that an officer of the Mahoning County Democratic Party, Jaladah Aslan, vice chairman of Labor Relations, endorsed a Republican.

I, as a precinct committee person, have a duty to work for the Democratic person who was selected in the primary election. I would hope that a vice chairman of the party would do the same.

If she is not a Democrat, she should not have the job.

You have just underscored the glaring weakness of our political system - especially here in the Mahoning Valley. Blind loyalty to either party is a major reason we keep electing weak, unqualified candidates. I too am a Democrat in that I identify more with the overall Democratic philosophy and priorities. That doesn't mean that I have become a lemming who doesn't think. I still vote for the best candidate - not the party. If more of us did the same, we might one day climb out of the local political cesspool and move the Valley forward. I commend Ms. Aslan for being "loyal" to her quality standards and her independent thinking!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we would all just vote for the most qualified candidate and remove from our minds those who merely exude that Hollywood b.s. and the never ending cronyism? Oh well, just a dream. Now let's get back to reality and let the losers like we have historically elected send our great nation down the drain.
