Jill Johnson taking the oath of office administered by Judge Alan Hancock on 12-28-2012

We all wish Jill well. Hopefully we will see a huge improvement in the way our county is adminstered with decisions being made for all Island County residents and not just the special interests groups that have been allowed to run rampant in the county for the last few years. 

 We certainly hope that as Jill ran and won the election as a Republican that she will uphold the conservative values that voters voted for when she was elected.

Congratulations Jill!




Our 3 Island County Commissioners on 12-28-2012



  1. My New Year’s wish is that by the end of 2013 I will be as happy to see Jill Johnson IN this elected position as much as I am presently pleased to have Angie Homola OUT of it.

  2. I’m going to be heading down there again sometime in January. Let’s hope nobody’s phoning it in – even for the good reason of going to NASWI on official business – and all I have to do is clear up the misinformation of the past month. For December’s sortie, go here: http://www.growlernoise.com/2012/12/video-of-yesterdays-sorties-both-mine.html

    I’m also all for making very clear that we need:

    a) Better noise disclosure as was promised during the 2012 campaign from Island County Planning
    b) A voluntary exclusion zone of two NAUTICAL miles (Google Earth it) funded by Congress around OLF Coupeville
    c) The US Navy needs to go on positive offense w/ PR and also an open house w/ a Navy Tac Demo & telling the public what NASWI does
    d) When progressive agitators start abusing Island County Commissioners’ public comment with clear misinformation & slander against NASWI the Republicans need to be good Republicans and push back, armed with the facts. Enough is enough.

    Over and out

    1. Josph,
      In regards to (b) above.

      Why would we want to spend any amount of taxpayer dollars for exclusion zones around an area where the noise associated with existing navy activities has been well documented and disclosed to all property purchasers?

      Republicans need to be good Republicans (and conservatives) when spending taxpayer dollars and ensure that these taxpayer dollars are being spent wisely. These dollars all come from the same place and that is us.

      Spending taxpayer dollars for issues that are easily resolved by the owners of these properties is not the answer. Encouraging people to use open market principles and sell their land to those that do not object to the occassional noise and move elsewhere is really the only answer. Everyone wins, the property owner can move to a less noisey place and the taxpayers (us) do not foot the bill for peoples mistakes in life…

  3. “We certainly hope that as Jill ran and won the election as a Republican that she will uphold the conservative values that voters voted for when she was elected.”

    Well Cliff, She sure as heck didn’t perform today as she conned those who voted for her believed and wanted what she claimed she said do:

    If today’s workshop performance by Jill is an indication of what’s to come we are getting Angie all over again +2.

    HPJ stacked the room with her fans and Jill acted just like Homalone; she was a perfect puppet for HPJ and her special interest fan club for “stop OLF noise”

    If this continues Jill will have conned all of us with her promises to be a voice of reason claiming she would think and act on what SHE BELIEVES is best; not just supporting what’s not controversial
    Did we get a three dollar bill?

    Jill, the shill, also voted with HPJ to reelect HPJ Chair of the Board of Commissioners again or as Yogi Berra would say “It ain’t over till it’s over…this is like deja vu all over again.”…she was very clever in her efforts to dissemble her incompetence as County Commissioner.

    I can’t wait to see if she does a repeat performance in Monday’s Commissionners meeting
    Maybe we should all go there and let her show us what she claimed she would do as Commissioner or if again she lets us down

    We don’t deserve another Caspar Milquetoast, compulsive/pathological liar or a sociopath type Commissioner, do we ????

    “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions…
    …Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.” …Marcus Tullius Cicero
    Forget Jill, I think that gem from Marcus Tullius Cicero better fits Obama;
    at her first meeting as our Commissioner, Jill was just a wannabe amature contender…lacking integrity, chutzpah, and acting without facts …
