– Editor’s note:
In the first vote tally last night, Hendrickson was leading Colt for Pos. 3 by 2 votes. “Colt said he was a ‘nervous wreck,’ while Hendrickson jokingly said, ‘I got him right where I want him’ when told of the results Tuesday night,” quoting Andrew Kollar and Michael Wagar, Nisqually Valley News. This kind of decisiveness has been a hallmark of councilor Hendrickson this election season, which is undignified and unprofessional of our local officials, who constituents expect to held to a higher bar of integrity. Seems the voters “got” the message and may end up showing Hendrickson the door.
