Letter: Election season far from over

Obviously, Debbie Smith is unaware that there is a general election in Mohave County on Nov. 4, in which Supervisor Jean Bishop will be running against a Democrat opponent ("Take down those big ugly signs," Sept. 9 KDM). The law allows Jean Bishop and other candidates who will be on the November ballot to have their signs remain.

Furthermore, Jean Bishop has a long history of public service with the county. When there was an appointment to be made to fill a vacant seat left by the untimely death of District 4 Supervisor Joy Brotherton, the board of supervisors appointed Jean to fill the vacancy with the understanding that she was a candidate in this election for District 4 Supervisor. The election process allows the majority of those who vote to make the determination as to who will serve.
