Farmington Hills City Clerk Clarifies Bullard Letter

Pam Smith says she did not intend that her personal support represent an endorsement connected with her official position.

To the editor:

In response to a recent article in this paper regarding my endorsement for County Clerk Bullard, Jr., I feel the need to clarify this issue. 

As City Clerk for the City of Farmington Hills, I have always represented a neutral position and have never used my position or my title to endorse a candidate, party or ballot issue. It certainly was not my intention for any acknowledgement of personal support to be representative of an endorsement by me as City Clerk for the City of Farmington Hills.

Pam, publishing your personal endorsement in an election just before the office you head is to count ballots, with or without your title, was a serious breach of professional ethics. Hopefully, it does not reflect a bias in handling the ballots cast in Farmington Hills, especially those already filed. The question unanswered is: what were you thinking?
