Port Angeles Council candidate Todd Negus said Thursday he is dropping out of the race for Position 1, conceding the Nov. 7 election to his opponent Jim Moron.
Didn't one of you actually (and accurately) predict this a while back? And what is with this? And what is with Negus going so far as to drop out and even conceding the election, but he can't tell us why...Until a "future interview."
This is such a bizarre, and may I say, blatantly corrupt, state of affairs. Another great day in Port Angeles, and another only in Clallam County story. But hey, at least Negus served his purpose, right? I mean, gee, his presence did keep Marolee Smith from making it to the general election - which meant it kept her from having a forum for months and months in which to ask "uncomfortable" questions about how City Hall conducts business.
"I told Negus to get out of my damned yard, and he did! 'Nuff said!"
That won't be a problem with Jim Moron. Even though he's not a Rough Rider by birthright, he's a good ol' boy through and through. He won't make any waves, or cause even a slight ripple of disturbance in City Hall's incestuous cesspool. He'll be like having Karen Rogers back, with a mustache.
More of the same lame game.
And now comes the not-even-fooling-a-third-grader "explanation" for dropping out, as well as the inevitable logrolling...
Moran said he was surprised that Negus is bowing out.
“To step away takes some personal courage, and I admire that,” Moran said. “Obviously, the guy has high moral character.”
In departing the race, Negus also praised Moran, calling him “a stand-up guy.”
“I feel that Jim Moran is in a position where he would represent the city of Port Angeles better than me as far as time he has to put on the council,” Negus said.
Hey, guys, if you wanna blow each other, get a room. But don't waste your hot air in public, thinking you're fooling anyone.
