He may not be much for making money, but he sure knows how to spend it.
Third Division Harbor Commissioner Mike Wilson tells us that if he’s re-elected he wants to create a vast array of water- and land-based trails for hikers, water skiers, kayakers, canoers, paragliders, biodiesel-powered jetskis, synchronized swimmers, etc.
He hasn’t said how he plans to pay for any of this out of the Harbor District’s upside-down budget, but not to worry. Wilson told the Times-Standard that trails have an economic component too: Businesses use amenities like these to attract a high-quality workforce.
It’s genius!! So instead of creating new jobs to replace the ones he and his far-left buddies have chased away, he’s going to help the few businesses still here recruit employees from places outside of Humboldt County.
Thanks, Mike! That’s just what we need.
