A Little Sunshine at County Commission

Lighthouse - Helping HandsYep. You read that right. Even though it’s gray and gloomy around the Harbor today, some ‘sun breaks’ were evident at this morning’s regular briefing with Commissioners Wes Cormier, Frank Gordon and Vickie Raines.

I kid you not. Everyone played nice. Said ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ No sharp words this morning. No indoor rain clouds.

It was especially nice to see former commissioner candidate and all-around good guy Keith Olson drop in. He’s lookin’ pretty dapper.

The budget was on this morning’s schedule. Budget Director Brenda Sherman  provided a briefing on the status of the Grays Harbor County General Fund as of September 30. Dru Garson of Greater Grays Harbor, Inc.  also stopped by for an annual update.

More on those later. Soon as I scare up some more tiramisu. With double hot fudge.

Meanwhile, a friendly mom reminder when it comes to the County Commissioners: the road they’re on is pretty bumpy at times, esp. when crunching budget numbers and juggling personnel issues. It’s not easy. But they’re trying. Give ’em some credit.

Another friendly reminder: A word of encouragement fitly spoken can go a long way. So can a sincere ‘thank you.’ When’s the last time you offered either to a commish or another public official?

Now might be good. Before there’s a run on hot fudge or some other cataclysmic event. You never know.

  1. I can’t remember the last time “all-around good guy” and my name were mentioned in the same sentence!!! And “dapper”? I’m not even going to try and guess.

    But………….a compliment is a compliment and I am all over that! Thank you.

    It is really nice to be out and about again. And it was nice to share the commissioner’s meeting room with old friends. Well……. Not older than me.

    Life is great! Thanks again.
