Monson should submit resignation | Letter


I can’t think of anything less likely to persuade those of us caught in the middle of this naval noise debate — to make us forget any rational arguments for the COER cause of curtailing necessary training exercises of the U.S. Navy on Whidbey — than for the leader of Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve to attack, verbally and physically, an upstanding Whidbey Island citizen.

That citizen, a popular, stand-up guy who himself has been through hell and back, is Joe Mosolino.

If COER has member control, those members should demand the quick resignation of this Michael Monson person so some level of civility may be restored. His bullying, sandlot tactics defeat COER’s purpose better than any arguments of the opposition.

This comes from an old guy who likes to sit back and hear both sides before he makes a judgment. But I despise bullying tactics on either side.
