Charter Review choices important

When you look at the long list of candidates for Charter Review Commission on your ballot you may be able to pick out one or two that you have heard of and figure it wasn’t from the police blotter.

When you look at the long list of candidates for Charter Review Commission on your ballot you may be able to pick out one or two that you have heard of and figure it wasn’t from the police blotter.

But you are asked to vote for five candidates from your district. Quite a few of the candidates from Districts 1 and 2 are either involved in or from the same political circle that is suing the City of Sequim for not kowtowing to their efforts to bully the city into taking an illegal action.

If you want to avoid the crowd that is wasting your tax dollars in a frivolous lawsuit, you can go to the Auditor’s website and read the statements of the candidates, but they aren’t very forthcoming on this point.

I recommend that you look for a newspaper ad placed by 15 candidates that believe in making government work for all of the citizens of Clallam County and who pledge to bring an open mind not an extremist ideology to the commission.

I believe these are the people who will bring reasoned discussion to the commission and produce reasonable recommendations.

If you see the name of Susan Shotthafer or Jerry Sinn who gathered the signatures for the initiative that is now the subject of the lawsuit, you have found the wrong list. Keep looking.
