CODE_of_ETHICS

Whether it is an Oath of Office or a Code of Ethics, these are just two examples of testimonials used to keep politically elected officials honest & accountable. Without some standards, elected officials can use their office in an attempt to quietly intimidate their real and / or imagined enemies. Some of the more common behaviors would be sharing private correspondence with others in a no need to know position, whether those colleagues or members of the public, were notified without the writer’s permission.

FIRED

If someone in an organization does something that frivolously costs a significant amount of money, based on arrogance and / or ignorance, shouldn’t they be fired? The mistake, in this instance, that can be attributed in large part to MG’s ignorance has everything to do with you, the taxpayer. That mistake costs us, as taxpayer’s, almost $1,700 per day, Monday through Sunday, for an entire year. That amounts to more than $3,300.00 per two day period or $50,000.00 per month.

LOYOLA

Mr. Goehner, wise up and get smart, please. I did my undergraduate studies at Seattle University from 1969 through 1973. Just in case you did not realize, Seattle University is a Catholic, Jesuit, School. The Jesuits, for the most part, are the teachers, the theologians and the philosophers that reside within the Catholic Church. The order was founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The Catholic version of the Ten Commandments is very important to me and helps how I choose to live my life. My religious beliefs bring to me a sense of humility, albeit a deference to God. They quietly lurk in the background, never worn on my sleeves! Read the rest of this entry »

NMBRS_196

In less than two months, just over fifty days, the blog has gone from 6.0 million hits to 6.3 million hits. I am anticipated that by the end of the calendar year the number will close to 7.5 million hits. Hits, in this sense, should be seen as points of approval. I am going to be engaged in a number of local blogs about the County Commissioner race so that will cut my numbers down. Read the rest of this entry »

FALSE_HOPE

It seems that ungrateful service employees have learned a lesson in the Sea-Tac area of WA State. This area is adjacent to the major airport of the same name. Lots of perks have been shelved for these unsuspecting employees. They will need $15.00 per hour just to pay for the things that they used to consider freebies. In some instances, no more business exists for them to work and ply their trade. Significantly lower tips, no more free food, no more free parking, no more 401k, no more overtime work and no more many other things. Read the rest of this entry »

LOW

I am an announced candidate for District 2, County Commissioner, Chelan County, WA. If you are looking for my blogs on that topic, just go to the Search button on the right side of my home page, at chuckslowe.com/. Enter Keith Goehner and read away. If your primary residence is in Chelan County, you need to be registered to vote and can do so by contacting the local Chelan County Auditors Office, Elections, at (509) 667-6808. Did you know that you can register to vote and update your voter registration by visiting their website at www.Elections.ChelanCountyWa.gov.

I have my work cut out for me! Chelan County is definitely a place with low information voter appeal. A significant percentage of the electorate is more tied to petty relationships than to a realistic notion of political competence. If you quiz these low information voter types they will give you a simplistic response that clearly is aimed at protecting their ignorance on matters such as intelligent governance.

CHARLES

In case you have not noticed, the law office of local attorney Charles Steinberg has moved from 119 5th Street to the Southeast corner of 4th and Miller. The property is one block south of Safeway. Turn left into the alley if coming South on Miller. Parking is in the rear. The move just recently took place and you will love the new space. I stopped by just the other day to check it out for myself. Read the rest of this entry »

BOSS

I am a candidate for the District 2 position, Chelan County Commissioner. I will be on the ballot for both the primary and the general election. I will be challenging the incumbent, Keith Goehner; a 12 year veteran of the Chelan County Board of Commissioners. My issues will include budgetary sanity, the Chelan County Fair, personnel issues, Political Independence, incorporated community policing costs and communication strategies; placing packets, not just meeting agendas on the website. The proper use of technology will be an overriding issue for me. I will also be looking for input from the underserved and those not currently being served across the county.

TIM

This year’s race in the 35th Legislative District, LD, of WA State will have a veritable buffet when it comes to this year’s state senate race. Longtime incumbent Tim Sheldon (D-WA35), not Shelton, might offer a glaring stare targeted directly at former State Dem Chair Dwight “Beaver” Pelz. Tim will have two challengers come the 2014 primary, two newcomers, this time around. Read the rest of this entry »

STRONG

Charlie Strong has made it known that business as usual is no longer a trait that the Longhorn players should embrace. The new coach has, in fact, delivered an ultimatum for his players. Refer to it as a wakeup call if you want. He has laid down the law and the talking is over. Now it is in the players corner and they are expected to produce, both in the classroom and on the field. He has a strong sense of direction and those players either unwilling or unable to follow might find themselves elsewhere in the near future. Read the rest of this entry »
