Emerson should not have voted

As reported in the Jan. 5 story Kelly Emerson’s first vote as an Island County commissioner was “no: to contracts with mental health professionals who provide counseling services to low-income people. Ms. Emerson said she hadn’t had enough time to study the contracts.

It seems it would have been prudent for her to abstain from voting, rather than representing an opinion, if she didn’t know what she was voting for.
