Give charter review a fresh start, new face | Letters

Does anyone else think it is strange that a candidate for the Charter Review Commission is also suing the county?

George Johnson filed suit in Skagit County in January of this year and a trial date is set in 2012. The suit relates to issues surrounding his termination in 2010.

One might also wonder why Mr. Johnson filed in Skagit County. Was he afraid it might reflect on his candidacy?

Additionally, Mr. Johnson was on the original charter committee as a freeholder. Our opportunity to review, improve and enhance the charter is of paramount importance to all of us. It is likely his involvement would compromise the work of the committee.

I highly recommend we elect new members to the commission, certainly not the old ones who may quite possibly have hidden agendas.
