There comes a time when one has heard enough. After reading the latest comments from Mr. Nelson, I decided I had heard enough and must provide some observations.
Having lived in our great City for the last 9 years I’ve observed Mr. Nelson’s “gift” of being able to take a single fact and creating an opinion, sometimes plausible and many times pure fantasy.
Over time, it seems Mr. Nelson has also personalized his opinions that there seems to be some sort of vendetta intended.
I am writing because I was fed up continuing to read Mr. Nelson’s commentaries of half-truths, misinformation, and conspiracy theories. Remember, Mr. Nelson helped perpetuate the “Big Hoax” election two years ago and continues to do so. Mr. Nelson’s recent opinion that there is some secret society “cabal” in Mill Creek was one of his more humorous conspiracy theories.
In his latest running commentary regarding the City budget, his references to the Economic Development Committee’s (EDC) work is pure fiction. The meetings of the EDC were open to the public to attend, which I attended and followed the committee to its conclusion and presentation to the Council. From my notes and observations, Mr. Nelson never attended these EDC meetings. His insinuation that former City Manager Ken Armstrong may have influenced this 15 member committee is pure hogwash.
If I have one last opinion about Mr. Nelson’s publicity hobby, I would ask that he would take in consideration what his words may mean to a new resident of this great City as a first impression. It is not representative of what this great City is really about.
To the Council candidate’s Mr. Sordel and Mr. Carlson who have shown professionalism in responding to Mr. Nelson’s blather, please have some solace in knowing that there are now more in our great City that understands what the truth is.
Thanks for listening.
