As an Everett, I was irate to learn that my family’s name was used in an attempt to smear a political candidate. The Everetts were long time residents of Wilmington. My mother ran a successful dancing school and donated proceeds to help build the Health Center. My father volunteered for years in Little League, Pony League and Pop Warner. He helped to build the Little League field by the Police Station and a skating rink behind the South School. I grew up in Wilmington and taught for 30+ years as Miss Everett, Mrs. Mosca, or Mrs. Farrar.
The name Jack Everett comes from the Urban Dictionary. As copied from the Urban Dictionary:
“Jack Everett – a strong leader that sticks up for other people and he will always put others first. lovely eyes and hair. good at sports, he isn’t arrogant, girls drop even when he is standing. he will fight to protect his friends and family”
Perhaps, the person who hid behind a cartoon character and our name sees this as themselves. However, I question their integrity. Our family will fight to protect our friends and family, which is why I am writing this. We do not want to be attached to negative campaigns.
For 63 of my years, I have lived and/or worked in Wilmington. I am invested in Wilmington. I am angry that our family name has been used in this way and to have been called on this by another hurts all the more.
I hope that the people of Wilmington will vote on Election Day and will vote wisely.
