It is reported to Port O Call three people have expressed an interest in replacing Clallam County Treasurer, Selinda Barkhuis when she steps down as county treasurer. One of those expressing interest is former county commissioner, Jim McEntire.
Readers may remember it was McEntire who brought down the weight of the county government upon Barkhuis when she refused to deliver one million dollars to the Port of Port Angeles just on McEntire’s say-so.
McEntire engineered the one million dollar gift to the port without any Memorandum of Understanding, without any contract as to deliverables for the money. This was an all out raid on the treasury, engineered by McEntire, and now he wants to replace Barkhuis as county treasurer?
Surely the county commissioners will laugh off this overture in the same way the voters laughed off McEntire’s candidacy for re-election. Wont they?
