It's High Noon in Burke County as Cindy Carswell Aims to Square Off Against Her Father for Sheriff
Their differences seem as much personal as political. Carswell admits that she was Daddy's girl when growing up, and after her parents divorced (Poovey has since remarried and divorced again), she chose to stay with him. But at 15, she wed an auto parts salesman and things began to sour. "My father always had the final say," explains Cindy. "Even after I was married the first time and was living next door, he spanked me if I got out of line." Poovey, who owns an industrial maintenance company and lives in a modern, 23-room house with his 15-year-old daughter from his second marriage, concedes that he was strict, but he claims Cindy was competitive from the start. "I don't ever remember her wanting a doll," he says. "She was always more inclined to want something I had and do what I was doing. And she still is that way." Poovey didn't know that his daughter was running for the $28,000-a-year sheriff's job until he read about it in the newspaper. "I thought it might be a lark to get at me," he says.
Cindy is a longshot candidate in the primary, but she's optimistic. "My father said he would like to be sheriff," she observes, "but he said that if the people did not choose him, I'd be the second best choice." Poovey is less complimentary. "I don't think it's a job for a woman," he says. "I told her early in this campaign that I'd much rather see her run the Pooh Bear's Day Care Center."
