Voters vote and the elected serve. This process is the bedrock of our democracy. In turn, societal norms are expected of our elected officials as they represent all of us. The locally elected sheriff, supervisors, and school board members serve as role models and comments made in person, on social media, and in writing are taken seriously.
Mathews County School Board member Bobby Dobson once again ignored society’s norms of conduct for our elected officials when he spoke at the March 28 Board of Supervisors meeting regarding the Hole in the Wall restaurant, saying “People involved in this should be taken out and shot in my book.”
He made this statement the day after the Tennessee school shooting (three 9-year-olds and three adults were murdered) which, in my opinion, makes it even more heinous.
Like ex-President Trump, Dobson is not above the law. It’s time for him to be removed from his position on the Mathews County School Board.
