Yep. 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.
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.
