I know a great deal about what he's been up to locally. Sources close to Madore are keeping me, well, informed.
That said, the situation in Washougal is heating up, and Mike Briggs, who has been a target of Russell's efforts to discredit him (Primarily though fake identifications in comment sections of various publications) weighs in:.
Mike Briggs · Top Commenter · Works at Civic ActivistThis was in a PSA, a League article update about a candidate forum for Washougal City Council.I wouldn't miss the Washougal forum for the world! The Washougal City Council has been in such an uproar for the last two years with the attempted uber-Conservative-take over attempt by Jon Russell and "The Four". Two of those infamous Four will be up there making their speeches, Michael Delavar and Jennifer McDaniel. Of course with an added attempt by Connie Jo Freeman who is Russell's pick to overthrow the favorite, Molly Coston. Newcomer to the group, local girl Niki Anderson, in an unusual move being promoted by Mayor Sean Guard himself, will be making her debut against the Southern charms of Mrs. McDaniel. But the real show may very well be the experienced and formidable but quiet-like forward thinking intelligence of Joyce Lindsay against the over-the-top Tea Party boy- Michael (Bush) Delavar.
This could be some show!
These kinds of machinations are fascinating. Presuming the accuracy of Briggs' observations, one has to wonder: "Why?"
Russell's efforts to dabble in politics have been uniformly disastrous. Honesty is the best policy and all that, a tenet of faith that Russell seems to have had some difficulty understanding.
I'll certainly be watching these goin's ons... and waiting for the inevitable melt down.
