Jackson County Legislator Crystal Williams concludes her political career with an embarrassing defeat and outrage directed at the majority of her constituents.
This cowtown politicos was abandoned by her colleagues after offering nothing more than unhinged rebuke rather than engaging in political debate.
Here's the end game from a lesser blog . . .
"Legislator Scott Burnett, one of four co-sponsors, said he planned to withdraw his support and said at least two of the three other co-sponsors were in agreement. He hadn’t been able to reach the fourth."
Translation . . .
Nobody wanted to fight the public on mask rules when it looks like mandates might be coming to an end across the nation . . . Yes, even in California.
But there's something more insidious about Jackson County Legislation that deserves a look . . .
The "Penalty Provision" included a curious passage that seemingly advocated a crackdown on youngsters.
Section 11. Penalty Provision.
Whenever, in any section of this Ordinance, the doing of any act is required or is prohibited or is declared to be unlawful or an ordinance violation, any person who shall be convicted of a violation of any such provision of this Ordinance shall, for each offense, be fined not less than $100.00 and not more than $1,000.00, or be punished by imprisonment, not to exceed six months, or be punished by both fine and imprisonment.
Okay . . .
Think about that for a second . . .
JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATION WAS SO SLOPPY THAT IT ADVOCATED LOCKING UP YOUNGSTERS AND TAKING THEIR MONEY!!!
This note was called out in public session and earned honest questions from Legislators who might have supported student masking in order to protect vulnerable youngsters.
Nevertheless . . .
LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS SUFFERED COVID MANDATE FAIL AND THE END OF HER CAREER THAT CHAMPIONED REFORM AND VOTER PARTICIPATION NOT SO LONG AGO!!!
Thankfully, life goes on and locals might be better served by understanding just a bit more about the political history of the courthouse.
