WASHAM: Help him find other employment

Dale Washam’s embarrassment to Pierce County has truly gone on long enough. No one cares anymore about his predecessor’s administration, and no one cares to join Washam in his never-ending witch hunt into the proverbial political train wreck.

Anyone in a similar predicament in the private sector would have been terminated long before everything went out of control. Elected official or not, Washam’s tenure should abruptly end for the good of the county and the integrity of the position itself.

The public could always help Washam and his sidekick, Albert Ugas, find other employment. How about creating a Batman and Robin-type of dynamic duo, fighting computer-generated land assessments throughout the land, purveyors of ultimate justice. But then again, who needs a dynamic duo that would have to be court ordered to actually do their jobs?
