Cheryl Sanders, elected chairwoman of Franklin County Board of Commissioners
During that discussion, Cheryl Sanders, the elected chairwoman of board, said that they were "not to be up here jewing over somebody's pay. (You can see Sanders' comment on this video of the meeting at 14:36 of Part 6 of the videotape).
The local newspaper simply reported her statement without comment. It printed the word "jewing" as a verb, in the lower case.
Then a respected media watchdog blogger, Jim Romenesko, picked up the story and wrote that Sanders, who apparently had received some criticisms of her use of the word "jew" in that context, had apologized for using the comment.
Sanders told Romenesko over the phone: "I am not anti-Semitic and there was no malice toward anyone.
When Sanders used the word at the county commission meeting, she was criticizing several of her fellow commissioners for being stingy. He insists that Sanders "wasn't referring to Jews.
It relied entirely on Romenesko's blog which, as I noted earlier, could not confirm that Cheryl Sanders had, in fact, apologized to anyone.
After the Forward story appeared, however, Sanders did apologize. Alderstein told me today that at the Franklin County commissioners meeting this morning (Tuesday), Sanders opened the meeting with a formal apology. He said he intended to include her apology in his story that will appear in the paper that comes out Thursday. The video of today's meeting will be available later today or tomorrow on the Forgotten Coast TV website.
What lessons can we learn - about bigotry, insensitivity, hatred, and journalism - from this incident?
According to a bio on the internet, Cheryl Sanders grew up in Carabelle, Florida in Franklin County, located in the state's panhandle on the Gulf of Mexico.
Cheryl Sanders is part of that culture. According to internet sources, she was born and raised in Franklin County, which gave 65% of its vote to Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. She graduated from Carrabelle High School in 1973 and attended Lively Vocational Technical School in Tallahassee. Sanders, whom Alderstein told me is a "conservative Democrat," was elected to the Franklin County Board of County Commissioners in 1998 and was re-elected in 2002 and 2006. She was appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush to the Northwest Florida Transportation Corridor Authority in 2005 to represent Franklin County. She is also on the boards of the Small County Coalition, the Florida Association of Counties, and the Alligator Point Taxpayers Association.
Caught like a deer in the headlights over her offensive remark, Sanders is unlikely to use the word "jew" as a verb in public again. Of course I have no idea what she is saying in private to her friends about being embroiled in this mini-controversy. Does she realize that using the word "jew" as she did is offensive? Does she realize that it connotes a hateful stereotype about an entire group of people?
Cheryl Sanders told Romenesko : "I am not anti-Semitic and there was no malice toward anyone."
The two recent examples of bigotry in Florida - George Zimmerman's racism and Cheryl Sanders' use of an anti-Semitic stereotype - are not the same.

Oscar and Cheryl Sanders, class=Cheryl is 51 years old.She was first elected to the County Commission in 1998 and is now seeking her third year term.She ran unopposed in 2002 and has served as chairman of the commission for the past four years.

She graduated from Carrabelle High School in 1973.And also attended Lively Vo-Tech in Tallahassee.She and her husband, Oscar, have been married for over 32 years.He has been employed with the county road department for over 27 years.
She feels that she has shown over the past eight years the leadership and experience that is needed to get the job done.She takes the issues and meets them head on, trying to make the decisions that are best for the people of District 2 and Franklin County.One thing she learned early was that there were four others commissioners that represent their districts and the people of Franklin County.And although, they may not see eye to eye on a lot of issues they try to work out the differences and make decisions that need to be made for the people they represent.
Cheryl is a certified county commissioner and has recently been chosen of only thirty commissioners from across the state to participate in the advanced certified commissioners course.She is currently serving her third term on the Florida Association of Counties as a director representing the counties within the District 6 Senate seat.She is on the executive board for the Small County Coalition representing the Northern Gulf Coast region which consists of counties from Jefferson County to Santa Rosa County.Cheryl also serves on the Florida Counties Foundation board dealing with small county technical assistance.In addition, she was appointed by Governor Bush in July 2005 to represent Franklin County on the Northwest Florida Transportation Corridor Authority to deal with the issues regarding to Highway 98 from Wakulla to Escambia County.Cheryl also sits as chairman of the Wilderness Coast Library Board which includes Franklin, Jefferson and Wakulla counties.She serves as chairman of the Tourist Development Council and is a liaison member of the Tate's Hell Forest.
Cheryl has been very instrumental in acquiring different things that have enhanced the quality of life for the people in Franklin County.Whether, it has been working with the legislative delegation to obtain the Carrabelle Wayside Park and insure that it would stay in public ownership or working together to obtain Fort Coombs National Guard Armory for public use Cheryl has always put the best interest of the people first.
In closing, Cheryl has traveled all over the state and the country representing the people of Franklin County.Whether it's an issue concerning our seafood industry, Highway 98 concerns or trying to work out problems that come to the Commission, Cheryl has been there.It's not about making promises that you can't keep.But, it is about making commitments to the people of District 2 and Franklin County.That's why Cheryl is, still the right CHOICE!!!
... still the right CHOICE!!!
