The New and Improved EDC is already working its magic. Amazing! Bill Greenwood says there will be 250 new jobs in Clallam County by "next spring." I'll say it again: Amazing!
Only, uh...Hmmm...Now that I think about that statement, I realize that, uh, it isn't really news. It's a hope, it's a wish, and it's a little vague. It also doesn't seem to account for any jobs that may be lost between now and "next spring." Let's say that 300 existing jobs disappear between now and "next spring," and that 250 new jobs actually do roll out. That would still be a net loss of jobs, right?
Also, and this is the most damning thing, Bill...If what you're saying does come true, then all this growth would be springing out of a period in which the EDC has been distracted, in transition. In other words, this is all happening without the "help" of the EDC. In other other words, Bill, you could say that your own prediction is an argument against the need for your organization.
If you're right. And if you're still around and employed yourself "next spring."
