Union County is about to lose 129 more jobs with the closing of Apex Tools, which demonstrates that you “reap what you sow.” The voters of Union County have given the Republican Party a monopoly on governing for the past 20 years.
Our state senate seat is held by a Republican. Our county commissioners, all five, are Republicans, and the district attorney is a Republican. One has to ask the question, “What have the Republicans accomplished with this stranglehold on Union County politics?”
The answer is clear. As far as job creation and protection are concerned, the Republicans have done nothing in the past 20 years. Until this monopoly is broken, the Republican officeholders will continue to do nothing, except to ensure their own jobs.
