Vote no on Bonney Lake charter; Pres. Bush shoe reaction | Letters to the Editor

Where to start, and even whether or not to start a response to Quinn Dahlstrom’s allegations and outright lies?

Where to start, and even whether or not to start a response to Quinn Dahlstrom’s allegations and outright lies?

It would appear in recent weeks that many of us who have expressed our beliefs that no charter for Bonney Lake is the better alternative in the special election to be held in February, have been targeted by Ms. Dahlstrom. She has made countless accusations, allegations, and written outright lies about many individuals.

We all shake our heads and say, it’s just Quinn. But when she decided to attack Brad Doll, George Brown, Carol Wells-Reed and then my husband Fred Jacobsen again, this time she took a far more personal note. My first reaction was anger and outrage and as I pounded out my response at my keyboard, I found it to be cathartic, and was able to calmly walk away from my computer. The anger disappeared, the outrage was gone, and a feeling of pity and sympathy for a woman who can no longer tell the truth and has resorted to making up scenarios for no other reason than to inflame the uninformed readership.

So, maybe that makes me next on the hit list, because I, too, have come out publicly to state, “vote no” on the upcoming Bonney Lake charter election in February. I know you support it, Quinn, and have been a driving force behind it, along with Councilman Dan Decker and Linda Dabson. Now I must question if everyone else in your camp believes the lies and innuendoes that spout from your computer. That is a terrifying prospect for the citizens of our city.

The definition of insanity

It is totally clear that the incumbent mayor lacks any ability to bring people together and get things done. She is a failure as mayor, making Black Diamond a laughing stock with her out of control behavior and outbursts at Council meetings.
