Skykomish Mayor Alan A. (Tony) Grider is Next Batter Up

Mayor Fred Black’s recent sudden departure under a dark cloud of suspicion, with 2.3 million dollars of Town money missing, meant a new warm body was needed to fill the vacuum.

Meet our latest Ruling Elite.

Mayor Alan A. (Tony) Grider, a terribly inexperienced and extremely naïve school teacher with absolutely no financial stake in the community, has decided to step up to the plate, or should we say into the lion’s den.

Will Grider continue down the now well worn path to destruction, allowing local corruption, BNSF Railway and other outside interests to continue fleecing our community, or will Tony have the courage to choose a more progressive, balanced Blueprint for Skykomish?

There’s an old, time tested saying: ‘Those that can, do, and those that can’t, teach’.

Question is teacher: How many more expensive lessons can Skykomish afford?

It’s time to put down the crack pipe and begin the real work of rebuilding Skykomish.
