Former Kitsap County Commissioner Tim Botkins dismissal as head of the Port of Bremertons Sustainable Energy and Economic Development (SEED) project was a no-brainer, and not just because we think the whole idea is an expensive mistake in the first place.
In an effort to keep the controversial project alive, Botkin last week sent out an e-mail urging supporters to put pressure on Port Commissioner Cheryl Kincer, who appears to be SEEDs swing vote on the board. Problem was, Botkins e-mail also implied Kincer simply didnt understand the complexities of the issue.
Its bad enough the ports paid consultant is going over a commissioners head directly to the voters, but questioning that same commissioners intelligence deliberately or not was a poor decision tactically, and were guessing it contributed to his losing the $10,000-a-month contract.
