Herbie Quinn visits town

Former Concord Mayor Herbie Quinn signed books at the Kiwanis Fair on May 17.
Former Concord Mayor J. Herbie Quinn was in town recently selling copies of his new book, "Political Crucifixion, and I got a chance to meet him and buy a copy of his book. He was selling books a various locations around the city the last few weeks including the Kiwanis Fair. Herbie shared a slew of old stories about life in Concord, his election to mayor, and eventual impeachment after he, as he puts it, took on the police department and the political insiders of the city.
I haven't had a chance to read the book yet - I passed it on to a family member to check out first. But I will read it later.
You gotta love the homemade aspect of Herbie putting out his book - visiting with old friends, selling them at local stores, and even out of the back of his car. Herbie headed back to Florida after his visit at the Fair.
In the end, Herbie said, you really have to be true to yourself and do what you believe is the right thing to do. And I can't think about better advice to give anyone.
"Political Crucifixion" is available in various places around town.
