Herndon following BCRCC's committee procedures

| November 21, 2023 1:00 AM

I would like to address a number of questions posed by Barbara Schriber in a letter to the Daily Bee on  Oct. 31.

In her letter, Barbara asks a number of questions and references an article from the Sept. 27 edition of the Bee. Barbara is very concerned because she thinks Scott Herndon is corrupt for assuming the duties of interim treasurer until a new treasurer is selected. Since Barbara does not know and does not seem interested in knowing the procedures of the BCRCC, she smears and denigrates, without foundation, because she is a liberal and hates Scott Herndon. Simple as that. 

She uses phrases like "in the crosshairs" and "where are the segregation of duties related to monies?" as well as questioning whether Scott can write himself a campaign contribution "without any further discussion."

The question is not can he, but would he? And the answer is no. Scott wouldn't think of it; only a dyed-in-the-wool liberal would raise the question in a typically underhanded way to smear Scott. 

If you want to talk to Scott, call him and speak to him personally. Rather than insinuate, suggest, and smear, have a conversation. However, you won't do it because the answers wouldn't serve your purpose.

For your edification, Barbara, I have copied and pasted from the BCRCC website. You are incorrect to say they are "elected officials," as if they were county or city officials. You say you can't get information from your precinct committeeman, but you don't have a precinct committeeman. And clearly provided on the website as an avenue to contact Scott Herndon.

The committee consists of precinct committeemen, who are elected every two years in the Republican primary. Even though the PCs are elected in a primary, they are not public officials. They are instead Republican party officials at the most grassroots level of the party — a small geographical area called a precinct. Precincts are the neighborhoods where voters in communities vote together, usually at a particular polling location.

All in all, your letter is just another smear campaign, and I hope this letter clears up all your questions.
