November 7, 2010, The day Kelly Emerson was elected Island County Commissioner,ex-Commissioner Homola drew the line in the sand, for her future relationship with Emerson with this, “A citizen who is seeking a paid public servant position while knowingly disregarding permitting requirements fails to acknowledge fiscal or civic responsibility. When that citizen then seeks retribution for their own malice, they compromise scarce tax payer resources and condone code violation,”
Price Johnson picked up Homola’s battle cry and at every opportunity they would attack Emerson with caustic words about Ken and Kelly Emersons legal problems with County Planning
Their attacks gained support from their fan club of citizens who picked up the chant of “pay your Fine Emerson and It’s time for Ms. Emerson to pay up, cease her private vendetta against her own county, and start acting like the government leader she was elected to be.”
In November of 2011 Homola and Price-Johnson reached a new low with their pretty vile personal attacks against Emerson when voting for the next Chair of the Island County Board of Commissioners
Their rudeness was not only an insult to Emerson, it was an insult and embarrassment to all Island County Citizens.
It was repeated again this year when Price-Johnson said she could not support Emerson for Chair of the Board.,
Price-Johnson and newly elected Commissioner Jill Johnson agreed that HPJ should remain Chair for another 3 months to give Emerson a chance to clear up her problems with Planning Department
They would then decide if Emerson had earned the right to be Chair of the Board
Emerson’s attorney in a letter to Island County Commissioners Jan 15, detailed for them the activities of the Planning Department and Bob Pederson to help Commissioner Emerson to comply with the other two Commissioners demand she must “clear up the planning Department situation”.
