Island County Republicans are now the laughing stock of the State of Washington, all over Twitter and Facebook. We were led to believe we were electing a Republican to replace a Democrat on the Island County Board of County Commissioners and wound up with a fi-ass-co.
It’s our own fault. Many of us overlooked her reputation of being volatile and rude in her position with the OH Chamber of Commerce.
Now, with less than 30 days under her “belt”, she says to the people who elected her,“I’m disappointed in you, just like you’re disappointed in me. I’ve been on this job two and half weeks and you expected what, some kind of blind loyalty, some kind of no thought behind my decisions? That’s what you thought you were going to get? I don’t think you know who you voted for,” Johnson said. “I’m going to think it through and do what’s right. You have four years to vote for somebody else who will blindly follow your cause. I’m going to make good decisions for Island County.”
Well, how brilliant she is – following the lead of others who, after being elected, think they’re so smart that they know better than the people – and she will decide what’s best for us. Ms. Johnson now will make decisions without input from the citizens in Island county without regard for what they think or what.
Not everyone thinks she a dis-ass-ter. Marcia VanDyke is congratulating her – you know Marcia? The liberal publisher of the North Whidbey News-Times and South Whidbey Record. “Good job,” says Marcia to Jill on Facebook. Well, Jill helps sell newspapers, i guess.
Well, maybe this is a good thing. At least next time Jill runs, we won’t feel obligated to donate to her campaign.
