To All COLA LO Members,
Its just an other in an ongoing pattern of behaviors that supported the newcomers running for county commission.
It contrasts dramatically with the LO Mayors race where the candidates conducted themselves admirably despite a very tight race and conceded when the outcome was obvious. Its clear there are different codes of conduct amongst different types of candidates.
NO concession from Chairwoman. Its unbelievable that this outcome would come as any surprise to anyone following county politics. After multiple measures passed from citizen initiatives and the majority on the county commission tried all they could to subvert the will of the voters and refuse them the right to vote.
Lets just say the conduct was despicable by any standard and the voters recognized this completely. That's why both Charlotte Lehan and Jamie Damon were ousted decisively despite partisan efforts to rally the base.
Its time for these representatives to say goodbye. Hopefully the new commission will show a different management style and set of priorities driven by voters. If they don't we all can now see what happens at the next election cycle.
