Boo, Hoo, Hoo

By any stretch of the imagination, Currituck County leadership is NOT full of Dudley Do-Rights striving for a just cause, the good of the people, and fairness for all. Indeed, it is quite the opposite! They're just a little better at concealing it. Most county decisions and business deals are done LONG before the formal meetings that are open to the public. Nordstrum seemed to have forgotten the first, and most important, cardinal rule of any cartel: To get along, you go along. Scanlon is a hired and seasoned pro. Don't think for one minute he didn't have his ducks in a row before ousting Nordstrum in the guise of retirement. She was just a lowly pawn on a chess board full of rooks and bishops. Any good player will wisely sacrifice a pawn or knight before losing valued and protective rooks and bishops. So Diane, bear this in mind if you ever have the opportunity again, "If you can't run with the big dogs, then stay on the porch". But if you chose to run, remember this: "You sleep with dogs, you wake up with fleas".
