  1. This does feel very petty given all the horrible problems in Kitsap county of late but I just have to say, Scales regularly and I do mean regularly stepped on Knoblock for 6yrs. He had no problem interrupting, using rules of order to do just what is being done to him now. I am sure it will settle down but his rage is pretty funny given how he had no problem shutting down the minority when he was in the majority. Its hard being in the minority Bob.

    We know he doesn’t like that his manager got fired, but he did protect her by leading the charge to hire her full time prematurely, so at least he can take comfort that he got her a good exit package.
    That said, its time for us all to settle down and get past this, small stuff like this plastic bags thing and figure out how to do the hard stuff.

  2. Tristan, I know this is a “blog” so the rules of journalism are somewhat relaxed, but you are decidedly biased here. How about some objective journalism? Do some research and see how Scales has acted over the last couple of years towards his fellow council members. It looks to me like he may be correct as far as this particular issue goes, but in terms of how he is being treated, he has reaped what he has sown. He is certainly not alone in causing problems, but he is the single biggest reason there is as much dissent in BI politics as there is today. It goes back years.

    I’m Tristan’s editor here at the Sun. I just want to set the record straight about part of your comment. This blog is held to the same standards of journalism as any other reporting done for our newspaper and website. There may be a different style of writing used on this blog than what is characteristic of a straight news account, but the tenants of objectivity and accuracy remain. For what it’s worth, to me this reads like a pretty straightforward report on what happened at the meeting last night.

    Thanks for reading and taking part in the discussion here.

  4. Good – the less scales opens his mouth the better the City is. Scales is a bully who does not know how to act when bullied back. With any luck he will get so annoyed he will resign.

  5. Scales is not only “out of order”, but out of control as well. He has been a bully from the start and is an embarrassment to this community. One would hope he’d take the initiative to resign at this point, yet that would require integrity beyond his present reach.
