Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

Circuit Clerk's Office Opens Up as Benefield Exits for Full Time Grandma in Chief Role

The Probate Judge race was the one to watch yet our Circuit Clerk election might be the fun one now. The lovely and capable Kim S. Benefield says she's done her time. Well done Kim S! We'll miss you yet go play Grandma! Your capable crew I hope will remain in place as they are simply superb. Word on the ridge is that Dean Wysner is jumping from the Probate Judge slot to seek the office across the hall. That apparently leaves Vickie Cummings as the Republican nominee to square off against incumbent George Diamond ... unless Jimmy McKinney pulls an upset. Dean may very well get the GOP endorsement, officially or otherwise, and that would solve some awkwardness for their party when Wysner entered late after Cummings was set for their candidate. I am expecting several more to jump in this fracas and I do hope the James Harris' Democrats can field several legitimate candidates. I'll keep Team Tartan posted as I hear more. Peace ... or War!
