This is in response to the article in the Chronicle Independent on Friday, July 20, 2012.

I would like to take this opportunity to inform Mr. Tucker that we, Kershaw County, have a public library with "ready access" to computers. The hours are as follows:

It is truly "unthinkable" that the Kershaw County Democratic Party would certify Sammie Tucker Jr. as a candidate for public office. To entertain that idea is ludicrous! To readily admit to people that he is not only an incumbent candidate for office but is actually the current Kershaw County Council Vice Chairman should be embarrassing to all citizens of Kershaw County. Realize, too, that Mr. Tucker is set to have no opposition!! Have our citizens completely given up on our political system? Are they now satisfied to let "whatever happens happen?"
