Fact Check: Jackson County Legislator Crystal Williams Argues Against Her Ineffectiveness



A recent screed on transparency from a leading feminist politico inspires a glimpse her lackluster reputation in terms of keeping promises.

For those who haven't read it already, here's a glimpse of the missive published by the newspaper . . .

Crystal Williams: Jackson County voters are being left in the dark

The argument for transparency is nice but it overlooks the failings of this courthouse denizen . . .

- When she first weaseled her way into office, Legislator Williams promised an interactive web page or at least an opportunity for online feedback on the County budget. Almost a decade later there's only a pathetic PDF collection of dusty old dox online and very little new tech designed to get people involved in the process.

- What Legislator Crystal Williams reveals is that she is on the OUTSIDE of the charter reform process. Her notorious ability to alienate political colleagues has once again thwarted her constituents and has her engaged in yet another nasty public dispute.

- She's actually FIGHTING FOR HER OWN JOB IN WHAT SHOULD BE DESCRIBED AS SELF-PRESERVATION AND NOT ADVOCACY . . . Notice how she doesn't really get into proposed salary increases where she stands to benefit by way of tens of thousands of dollars.

Sadly, the fading local dead-tree media institution has offered her space not out of any real concern over policy or because Mike "Why Can't I Retire???" Hendricks has mostly given up on reporting BUT seemingly out of respect for her "progressive" gender identify politics that seems to align with most of the content from the editorial board as the newspaper struggles to maintain relevance.

Crystal has been a bad joke on the County.

When are we going to get somebody to run against her? She needs a real challenge.

Nobody is arguing against salary increases of more than 50% for elected officials, not even the star? That's a damn shame.

she WILL have an opponent. Just wait and see.

Maybe, but what if her opponent is a dumb bitch too?

In all fairness, the county executive controls the county website. He doesn't want the budget to be interactive. He just wants his photo posted all over the website, literally standing around doing nothing.

Dumbasses come in both genders at Jackson County, starting with the idiot in charge Frank White.

When can I turn in my truck and get a nicer one?

After being elected, Crystal Williams couldn't wait to run for something else. That's dedication.

Crystal has been an abomination as a legislator so why does this not surprise you. She had isolated herself as a legislator and is largely worthless. Nutter is gone so now she has to stand on her own. Which means she will fall. She will have oppositio.

Has anyone ever taken a photo of Crystal Williams in which she looked sober?
