Let me get this straight:
The Chamber of Commerce is publicly supporting Town council Candidates Kristi Henson, Scott Stewart, and Phil Richardson, along with the mayor who’s up for recall, Ron Badowski. Right?
Why are those names so familiar? Could it be because three out of four of them are on the Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors?
So the Chamber of Commerce is supporting political candidates who just happen to fill three of the five Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors positions? The Chamber of Commerce is, in effect, supporting itself to fill three political positions?
Hello? Does anyone else out there see something wrong with this?
Can you say conflict of interest?
Why doesn’t the Chamber of Commerce just take over the Town Council and be done with it? That would be just a little less obvious than what they’re doing, wouldn’t it?
And why is the Chamber of Commerce supporting any candidate at all? Shouldn’t they be supporting their members? The people struggling to keep their businesses alive? The same people who support the Chamber of Commerce by paying membership dues? What support are they getting from the Chamber?
What’s going on in Wickenburg these days anyway?
