Regardless of whom you voted for in the Register of Deeds race, you have to give Crystal Crump kudos for not being dragged into the mudslinging. In spite of fact various supporters and opponents tried very hard to do so, Ms. Crump displayed a maturity and grace that we could only wish was more commonplace in Union County politics.
“It’s disappointing when you have Republicans going against each other,” Crump said. “I really hate that some resorted to dirty tactics.”
Those tactics included a letter writing campaign that questioned Crump’s qualifications and suggested that she was behind the criminal charges that led to Price’s demise.
Chapman acknowledged that the recent barrage of letters to the editor, published in The Enquirer Journal, about Crump helped her campaign, however, denied that the letters originated from her camp.
