cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
The Washington County Board meeting held on November 3rd was a display of something less than a well-functioning Board in my estimation. The debate can be seen here and the less functional portion of that debate occurs from about minute 40 to the end of the meeting.
As a direct result of this meeting, another former member of the Board has decided he will again run for a seat in what is now District 8. Don Berchum who was in attendance stated, “You cannot lead by being a dictator”. In response to the manner in which the Board Chair, Herb Tennies, conducted that meeting.
Berchum said that “something has to change and if no one else will do it, I feel a duty to my township to run”.
