Early voting kicked off April 24 in Beaumont with just a trickling of its populace turning out to select city leadership. During the first three days of early voting for the May 6 election, just under 2,000 voters made their way to one of Beaumont’s five polling locations – Rogers Park, Beaumont City Hall, Beaumont ISD Administration Building, John Paul Davis Community Center, and Johns Library, with an added roughly 300 mail-in ballots received by election officials.

I have seldom gone to an athletic contest where the home team was losing when I did not hear comments all around me from those who believe they could have done better than the coach—They should have called a pass instead of a run; they should have punted instead of trying on fourth down, etc. etc. Criticism such as this always carries the implication the critic could have done better had he or she been in the shoes of the person being criticized. Being a Monday-morning quarterback is not only large in athletic endeavors, it is also extremely large in politics and government.
