I keep seeing election posters saying, “Reelect Su Coddington; Celeste Bodner; Erika Marshall-Hamer; Katherine Parker; and Mike Hinton, to the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District Board of Directors.”
What a joke! The only member of the board that could be reelected is Mike Hinton. You can’t be reelected if you weren’t elected in the first place and it just so happens that the remaining four board members were all appointed to their positions to complete the terms of those board members who had been systematically eliminated by Skyler Archibald, the district’s general manager.
Speaking of jokes, in a chat box during last Thursday’s forum, Archibald’s wife, Chelsea, said if Skyler leaves the district, staff would too. I doubt that those individuals would leave their well-paying jobs in a show of loyalty to Archibald, especially in light of the pandemic we’re facing right now!
I ask voters to cast their votes for the following candidates to fill those board positions: Al Hernandez, Steve Morrison, Jackie Evans, Patrick Duhachek and John Huismann. These candidates will do a much better job of protecting our tax dollars.
