Claims Dickson could be divisive force on council
October 26, 2011 · 9:42 AM
The many attack ads by Darrel Dickson, in his attempt to unseat Councilman Richard Elfers, bring to Enumclaw the same politics of poison – lies, half-truths and innuendo – that have already corrupted our state and federal races. He accuses all the Enumclaw council members of a “lack of vision” but is not willing to share with us his vision. He blasts Councilman Elfers’ voting record as if Mr. Elfers votes were any different from the votes of other council members. He belittles the many hours that Mr. Elfers and our other council members devote to the tough decisions needed to maintain our city services with fewer dollars available each year.
Darrel Dickson’s employee, Chance La Fleur, will take a seat unopposed on our city council giving Mr. Dickson two votes on any city issue. Having already insulted the other council members, the poisonous atmosphere he has created will make it very difficult to work with him to solve the serious financial problems that face our city. We could see the same divisiveness that has gridlocked our national government for months.
Do we really want this type of politician to infect our Enumclaw City Council?
