Good to know the County is flush with enough money to dabble in commercial real estate. How many millions are they gambling with? Fortunately for the commissioners, no one really cares.

Before casting dispersion, maybe you should look into how much profit revenue from Salmon Harbor/Winchester Bay parks, resort and recreation goes to funding other County services that you and I enjoy (kind of nice being able to go to our free parks). Not only have these venture produced County revenue to supplant lost timber dollars -- they also have supported businesses by way of increased tourism.


Look into it...how? These are just commissioner talking points. Have you got any documentation to back up those statements of big profits? How many millions have they invested? If there really are big profits, private money would have stepped in. That rv park was for sale for many years.
