Mike Landis: Petitions don't matter either
The board eliminated Jennifer Martucci and Lane Roberts for consideration, saying they wanted someone who had run for the board in the April election. That left Jeff Koch, who had finished fourth, barely missing election, and McGrew, who finished sixth, receiving approximately 900 votes less than Koch.
When it was pointed out to Landis that Koch had received more votes in the election, the comment received the high-pitched response "Elections don't matter."
Landis and those who have supported the C. J. Huff Administration should have figured out by now that elections do matter, considering that two straight board presidents, Jeff Flowers and Anne Sharp, have gone down to defeat with neither faring well with the voters, while reform candidates Debbie Fort, Koch, and Martucci have been elected by wide margins.
Apparently, it is not just elections that don't matter.
When his former colleague on the board Jim Kimbrough, presented petitions containing more than 300 notarized signatures Tuesday night, Landis, without bothering to look at the petitions, tossed them aside.
In the world of Mike Landis, not only do elections do not matter, but neither do petitions and apparently neither does the public.
Thankfully, after April 2016, it is Mike Landis who will not matter.
