Honestly, Otsego treasurer's race is a total mess

(Continued)

County Democrats, who wanted to back Bachman, now embrace Crowell as their guy.

“If elected, I would serve to the extent my obligations would allow, and exactly as is currently taking place, ensure there is stability in a seamless and capable leadership if and when other duties arise,” Crowell said.

Presumably, that means he’ll advocate Bachman keep his office seat warm while Crowell’s away.

Otsego Republicans, who were more than ready to throw Keator under the bus in favor of Crowell, now are backing Keator.

As we see it, the only one from both parties who has been totally honest and above-board has been Ed Keator. He says he wants to be treasurer, and has sought the office without intrigue or obfuscation.

It’s too early for this newspaper’s endorsement, but we have a pretty good idea who would get Diogenes’ vote.
