A Statement From Commissioner Ron Wesen
Today, following an article in the Skagit Valley Herald that misconstrued the statements given to a reporter by Commissioner Wesen, he felt compelled to make the following statement:
I condemn in the strongest terms the violence that took place in Washington, D.C. last week. The insurrection was shocking to witness.
I also want to make clear that President-Elect Biden was elected in a free election. I look forward to President-Elect Biden’s inauguration next week.
I have spoken with the Herald and asked them to correct my statements. I appreciate their work and cooperation correcting this unfortunate misunderstanding.
Commissioners Janicki and Browning agree with Commissioner Wesen’s statement here, and were thankful for his corrections today.
