Yes, Cherie Kidd has been named Ms. Washington Senior America 2017 by "Senior America, Inc.," which is located in Allenhurst, New Jersey, and, so far as I can tell, looks like nothing more than a sub-Chamber of Commerce-type "enticement" to get the fifty lucky ladies they select to come to New Jersey for their "pageant."
I will now pause briefly while you all rush to get your plane tickets to the pageant purchased. New Jersey beckons!
"I'd just like to thank all of the me who were kind enough
to nominate me for this great honor of which I have the honor
of being nominated for. The honor, that is. For which I am, me, myself,
have been nominated."
I'm going to take a wild guess that Cherie may have nominated herself, or, at the very least, was "involved" with the "process." In any case, she is still peddling all the same sad old lies, including that "She successfully ran Success Seminars and became a speaker at public and corporate seminars throughout the U.S."
Cherie, we've all heard you speak. You have a truly unfortunate, screechy voice, and, even with prepared notes, you stumble through your statements like a drunken sailor on shore leave. This lie needs to be, dare I say it, retired.
It's also clear that Cherie wrote her own (glowing!) write-up for the Senior America website. How do I know? Because many statements don't make sense, such as: "Interested in historic preservation, she was the author of her city's only historic district." See also: "She is third generation Kidd family with her grandparents homesteading in the early 1900's."
Despite that incessant need to claim local roots, other statements lay bare her deeply (deeply!) buried ambivalent feelings about her undeniably distressed hometown. After all the times she's screeched out "It's another great day in Port Angeles!" the best she can muster here is a Jack Webb-like recitation of the minimal facts: "Port Angeles is a waterfront city on the Strait of Juan de Fuca."
Yes, and Washington is a state on the West Coast. Of course, there's a little more to it than that, but it seems that even Cherie, when it comes right down to it, can't think of anything nicer to say about Port Angeles than...Well, there it is.
If you've ever wondered what Cherie sees in her mirror...
