Well, the cronyism continues.

I knew Vernon Mayor Jason McCoy wasn’t going to be deterred in hiring his crony pal, Robert Kleinhans, for the director of Public Works job. One could see Kleinhans in the background while McCoy was being sworn in by the governor.

My grandfather always said that if it looks like a snake and slithers like a snake, then it’s a snake.

To the male Republican council members: It isn’t too late in your political careers to take back your manhood and stand up for what is morally right, not what your boss wants.

I truly hope you can look yourself in the mirror and say that you hired the best possible candidate for the job. I think you will have a hard time convincing yourself of that. Shame on you.
