I have to give the Dispatch credit for one thing- at least they are consistent.
Their conservative editorial board doesn’t like Franklin County’s Quality Construction Standards because those standards benefit construction companies that use fairly-paid workers who usually- gasp! – belong to a union.
This one issue seems to drive many of their endorsements this year.
As County Commissioner, Mary Jo Kilroy supported those standards and last week the Dispatch gave that as their reason for not endorsing her for congress.
Paula Brooks, however, challenged those standards and the Dispatch used this as their reason to endorse Paula in her re-election bid for Commissioner.
