My understanding is that candidates are supposed to run in the area in which they live. Why would I vote for someone who lives on the opposite end of the county and even brags in the article that his area is carrying the economic development? Should we assume that Scott plans to move just so he can have a chance for a Commission seat?
There seems to be something inherently dishonest about this approach, and it certainly flies in the face of the principles of the districting form of local government.
