We're back with new posts later today. Although the Trojan Heron's attention was diverted elsewhere, the steady drumbeat of hypocrisy, bias, and bad thinking continues in our County unabated. There is so much to comment on:
- County employees being fired for campaign/personal use of computers, and County Councillors doing nearly, if not exactly, the same thing. And incredibly, the County lies about the termination, calling it administrative leave. That's one more example of our County's long-standing commitment to truthiness.
- The Friday Harbor Mayor endorses her husband for Council. What took her so long? Was she undecided up until the past week? Since this was a mayoral endorsement, can she issue the endorsement from her Town email?
- CAPR files a lawsuit dealing with procedural aspects of the CAOs, and nary a mention of it by the Council (although it was printed in the Island Guardian and San Juan Islander). If a lawsuit falls in a wood, and there are no Councillors around to acknowledge it, does it exist?
- The County issues a budget document that reads like a political propaganda hit piece sprinkled with a few numbers. Did Bob Jean really write that or is he being the mouthpiece for others in the County?
And ballots are out! All that plus what Karl Popper would think of Dr. Adamus, Shireene Hale, our Council, and the CAOs ... plenty to talk about.
