Chas Edwardson, I raise you high for your succinct portrayal
of what's gone on for years. I used to spit my coffee like you,
and then have morning 'incredulous blowouts', and finally started
wondering: "Where the heck do I get in line for these outrageous
handouts?" Lie like a rug, devise a devious hell-bent-for-failure
plan, sell the council and Ta-Dah! Make big lying 'doo-doo',
and come out of it with big bucks, and smelling somewhat like
a rose, but leaving a stench. Apparently if one is not part
of the "inner circle" that keeps it going.
Chas Edwardson Quote: "I
SOLD MY HOUSE TO A FRIEND FOR 500,000 DOLLARS OF WHICH I NEVER
RECEIVED , THEN I LET MY FRIEND REMODEL MY HOUSE AND THEN i ASKED
ANOTHER FRIEND WHO DOESN'T REALLY LIKE ME (Palin admin) TO BORROW
9 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS TO BUY MY HOUSE BACK. BUT FIRST
I WANTED MY 1ST FRIEND TO RECOVER HIS COST. SO I WANT TO LEASE
THE house I owned in the first place!! FOR TEN YEARS AT NEARLY
4 AND A HALF MILLION, SO I NEED TO BORROW the 4 AND A HALF MILL
(FROM WHOEVER) SO AS NOT TO INCONVENIENCE MY 1ST FRIEND, TO GET
THE HOUSE BACK THAT I OWNED IN THE FIRST PLACE. This does sound
funny - doesn't it?? Or is it just me? I'm sure there's more
to it?? But if someone from the outside who read this not knowing
the genius of our Borough Assembly -- "VENEER MILL, BOWL
FACTORY, WARD COVE" -- they would think it was funny."
Oh, I ponder and ponder, and
it remains incredulous that this continues.
Glad I'm out of your loop.... but it still blows me away that
elections still result in the same 'poo' happening. If anyone
ever figures out what that 'thing' is that happens once a person
is elected in Ketchikan.. where their logic, common sense, financial
sense, understanding and empathy of their community goes to [poo],
you really ought to tell the rest of us.
I'm constantly astounded!
