Tue, 03 Dec 2013 17:58:36 GMT — While the two Republican candidates for Potter County Judge are similar, there are definitely differences.Supporters of both are criticizing the other.Nancy Tanner says the fact Debra McCartt is married to a local developer, Joe Bob McCartt, there could be a potential conflict of interest. "If someone from Tootâ??n Totum or Prana comes in to get a tax abatement, is she not going to vote on that? Ever?"McCartt says "I know when itâ??s time to step back or abstain or anything that might appear to be a conflict of interest for me."Tannerâ??s critics say sheâ??s a Democrat in Republican clothing.Tanner says, "Iâ??m a Republican, but I am for the underdog."McCartt heralds her experience as Mayor and working with a budget,"The economic health of this county means people need to step up. Iâ??m ready to step up."Tanner says, "If I win, thatâ??s great. If I lose, the countyâ??s going to get a cheerleader instead of a leader."
