VIRGINIA BASS: Not very smart
Fourth District Supervisor candidate Virginia Bass says big box development is “smart growth.” That’s about as un-smart as whoever wrote the talking points in her column in today’s Times-Standard.
She also decries her opponent “throw[ing] mud,” but Bass herself exercised her pitching arm during every debate where she avoided questions by going negative on incumbent Bonnie Neely. Perhaps she fails to listen to the scripted words she dutifully recites during these pre-election events.
She claims again she will bring “new ideas” if elected, but what are they? During multiple interviews and forums she can’t seem to name a single one.
Bass promises a “fresh perspective” and she’s right on that one since she admits her failure to educate herself on key issues facing the county.
The term “hypocrisy” comes to mind when reading the column, but that’s typical for this candidate who regularly says one thing then does another. Like the time she “threw mud” at Neely for voting to raise her salary while at the same time Bass touted an endorsement by another supervisor who… wait for it… voted to increase her own salary! The difference is Bonnie turned down the extra money while Virginia’s supporter did not.
Bonnie Neely for Supervisor.
