Challenge for Muskegon County Board's chairmanship falls short MLive.com
"The party split on the new county board is 7-4 in favor of Democrats, although it is likely that the vote for chairman was not made strictly along party lines.
The vote was completed by secret ballot, but Derezinski, as the one making the nomination of Snider, apparently crossed over, meaning at least one Republican must have voted for Mahoney."
One Muskegon RHINO GOPer got his thirty pieces of silver in exchange for his vote.
Who sold his soul for a committee plum?
How will his sell out affect the GOPer "family"?
A couple of other observations:
1. The Snyder as vice-chair crossover votes were expected to mollify the GOPers.
I think not.
2. Citizen fired, commissioner Bill Gill never said the pledge to the flag or had hand over heart during county meetings.
My understanding is his belief that our country is a racist and unfair country precluded his participating in the Pledge during the meetings.
Gill's replacement on the board, Anthony Longmire seemed to mouth the words of the Pledge, but did not have his hand over his heart during the official Pledge.
Both are African Americans.
3. Even though 4 of the 11 commissioners are republicans, expect Mahoney to stack the committee chairs with democrats.
Business as usual in (bankrupt) Muskegon county.
Is there any wonder why our geographically blessed county is still called the mistake on the lake by those who live AND WORK outside Muskegon?
