Editorial: Stick with Keisler in Lexington Council District 5

WHAT should voters do when the incumbent and his challenger both leave much to be desired, as is the case in the Lexington County Council District 5 race between Councilman Bobby “Grave Digger” Keisler and Brian Duncan, a political newcomer? Despite his tenure on the council, Mr. Keisler presents no clear vision for the county or reason for the people to stick with him rather than choose his opponent. For his part, Mr. Duncan volunteered that his only reason for running was to give voters a choice since Mr. Keisler had not had opposition since first taking office in 2003. He then offered no strong argument for why he should be elected.
