Yes, Cherie. Dressing up like it's the past absolutely is
the best way to build a successful future.
Deputy Mayor Cherie Kidd donned an antebellum costume Wednesday for the filming of a pilot episode of a program that will promote Port Angeles. "Positively Port Angeles" will air June 1st on Wave Broadband's public access Channel 21, and on the internet, Kidd said.
There's already a comment about this on the Peninsula Daily News website that sums up the appropriate response to this Grandmother Guignol performance. I have saved it here, since the PDN will probably delete it as soon as their intrepid staff wake up:
Even for our Deputy Mayor, this is surreal. Port Angeles' most-distrusted woman has decided she's the right spokesperson for what's good about the city?
It's an interesting use of public-access TV, too - an extended infomercial for a failing politician, masquerading as an extended infomercial for Port Angeles tourism, being shown to the citizens of Port Angeles. "Ironic" doesn't even begin to cover this.
I agree! But I think "moronic" gets us a little closer to the truth, doesn't it?
