This week Commissioners Dan DeYoung and Herman Baertschiger were channeling Fox News during their encounter with SOREDI’s Colleen Padilla, invited by Commissioner Darin Fowler to give a report who didn’t bother to show up to hear it. Their pessimistic take on Josephine County’s business climate will probably not win them many friends in the Chamber of Commerce. Herman didn’t appear on KMED this week, not that I could find anyway. Could be because he has been careful not to say anything too crazy lately which is boring to KMED’s audience. That demographic did, however, get a full dose of crazy from state Sen. Dennis Linthicum who shows up regularly on KMED to spread conspiracy theories.
