Rev. Craig Mathies, Sr.,

Posted by Unknown Sunday, December 12, 2010

The story of Rev. Craig Mathies, Sr., being elected to the office of County Commissioner in Somerset County should not be overlooked. He is the first African American elected to an office in Somerset County in over 300 years.

"Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,—
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own."

I commend Rev. Mathies, Sr., Pastor of Zion Baptist Church, for listening to the voice of God and setting into his place in history. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., says it best, "the right time is always the time to do right."
