Oak Harbor City Council belongs on an island

If it can be proven that the Oak Harbor City Council members had prior knowledge of Native American burial sites along Pioneer Way, then I strongly urge the residents of Oak Harbor to hold all council members, except Mr. Dudley, personally responsible for all costs stemming from their stupidity and total disregard for possible problems in this area.

This includes the $200,000 archeological fees and all other costs incurred by long delays plus compensation to business owners for loss of revenue caused by said delays. If it means taking them to court, by all means do so.

And I suggest keeping the entire council (except Mr. D) on an island in Puget Sound until all costs are paid in full. Mr. Slowik has to realize he is not the almighty Obama who seems to think he can do whatever he chooses with other people’s money.
