On Tuesday, March 19, the Lewis County Board of Commissioners Edna Fund and Bobby Jackson along with Prosecuting Attorney Jonathan Meyer met to discuss the illegal seating of Winlock City Council member Jodie Curtis. The illegal appointment process was discovered during the whistleblower act investigation.
The prosecuting attorney confirmed it was not done procedurally correct, thus making the position illegal for the past year. Mayor Bradshaw and City Attorney Erin Hillier of Hillier, Scheibmeir and Kelly PS., both disagree with the decision by Prosecuting Attorney Meyer. The same law firm was involved in illegal appointments in Napavine and disagreed with Meyer then as well.
Commissioner Fund asked several questions, she asked if the vote was unanimous for councilor Curtis. It was unanimous, but no one was aware that Mayor Bradshaw had directed his council to vote for Barb Pedersen and Jodie Curtis. Mayor Bradshaw had made his choice for council and they would continue his agenda as evident in their voting record.
