Did She Really Say That?

My opponent, Heather Hughes, is quoted in a Gleaner profile of the race as saying this:

"Route 8 is resolved"


"Route 8 is resolved"


Let me just say this.

Generally, a road is resolved when it is actually paved.

Or, perhaps, if a truck appears to start work on the road.

Or, more generously, when it actually shows up in a government budget for which government members vote.

When there is no road, no budget, and government members vote AGAINST three seperate motions to build the road, that is somewhat unresolved.

There are two possible explanations for this.

1. "Resolved" does not mean what Ms. Hughes thinks it means.

2. Ms. Hughes will be satisfied if her Leader tells her vaguely that someday, possibly, he may get around to funding Route 8, he's just opposed to it right now.

Neither explanation bodes well. And I note that in Marysville today, the Gleaner was a helpful thing to show people.

Pavement, not promises, will make this issue "resolved".
