I read the comments made by Sunnyside City Council candidate Mike Farmer. I would like to remind people the Don Vlieger, Mike Farmer and Bruce Ricks traveled to Utah and came back with glowing reports of Bob Stockwell, the man who could get the job done.
With their recommendation he did get the job of city manager and what a job he did. He spent massive amounts of money not approved by council, loss of the reserve so proudly proclaimed by Mr. Farmer.
It was Mr. Stockwell who bought the fleet of vehicles Mr. Farmer does not like.
Unrest in the city all started with Mr. Stockwell, Mike Farmer's man of choice.
Mistake by Mr. Farmer? Yes. Worse than the incumbent has made? Only the voters can decide.
Candidates, be careful of what you brag about. It could come back to bite you.
