Former Public Service Commissioner Terry Dunn (R) released a statement critical of a hot dog supper tonight being hosted the Republican Executive Committee of Etowah County to, “Welcome our newest elected official members: Etowah County Circuit Clerk Cassandra “Sam” Johnson and Etowah County Revenue Commissioner Linda Barrett-Vaughan,” who switched to the Alabama Republican Party from the Alabama Democratic Party.
Commissioner Dunn told The Alabama Political Reporter that he had concerns about anyone who could run and serve as a Democrat while Barack Obama (D) was President. Dunn suggested that if Obama was not too liberal for you to switch parties then, why someone would switch now…..other than to improve their chances of being reelected in a State that is increasingly Republican as was demonstrated by the record GOP votes for Donald J. Trump (the most votes for a presidential candidate in state history). Pres. Trump also carried Etowah County by a large margin.
