In last Tuesday’s Whidbey News Times the “editorial board” (Keven Graves) came out with their recommendations for the upcoming election. In the article the paper endorses Karla Jacks over Rick Hannold and uses outright lies as the justification for making that selection.
In the article it states:
“We are concerned by Hannold’s affiliation with the so-called “Mean Girls” website, a source of vicious railing against political and public figures who don’t agree with their viewpoints. We don’t want to see a return to the sort of battles that bogged down the commissioners during Kelly Emerson’s tenure on the board.”
The basis of those words is an absolute lie and the concern expressed in the article is based upon that lie.
I want to be perfectly clear, Rick Hannold is not affiliated with Island Politics as Mr. Graves’s claims.
