Jerry Lapp? I can think of few people who represent the antithesis of Mr. Sean Maidy’s views and politics more than Jerry. The voters chose Maidy, who has interests in the environment, healthy rivers and fish, and long-term choices for the people who live here. I won’t say Maidy and Lapp are diametrically opposed in their philosophies, but either of the other two applicants would have been far, far closer to Maidy’s politics than your choice. You had the chance to represent the spirit and politics of the voters, but you instead chose someone who represents yours. I will remember this (as will others) when each of your seats comes to an end.
