Setting It Straight

In last week's issue of the Silsbee Bee, an advertisement endorsing sheriff candidate Mark Davis by Rev. C.M. Duplissey was received by the Silsbee Bee on May 16, 2016.

The advertisement stated that sheriff candidate Bryan Skinner was not endorsed by Beaumont police chief James P. Singletary.

Skinner was endorsed by Singletary and his campaign received the letter of endorsement on May 23, 2016, which was forwarded to the Silsbee Bee.

At the time the Silsbee Bee received the advertisement, it was factual by Duplissey, who submitted the ad.

The Silsbee Bee is not responsible for the unique situation, or the accusations of false advertisement.
