We read Dick Yarborough's column on the state Senate election where once again the character of incumbent John Wiles was called into question, despite Mr. Yarborough's statement that he does not know the man. Sen. Wiles may have lost the election because of tactics such as those described, but the real losers are the citizens of Cobb County. Through hard work and a dedication to his constituency, Wiles earned significant authority and power in the Legislature. That only benefited the interests of Cobb County. There is no one in the Cobb delegation that can match or replace such advocacy.
What was gained by treating this friend of Cobb County in such a fashion?
