As one fifth of the county legislature’s Democrat caucus, I can say with certainty that I did not ask for County Clerk Mike Backus to hold an open house or luncheon. I think if Backus thinks members of the Democrat caucus called for him to hold anything, then he’s having more fantasy dreams than Dorothy.
In his most recent letter, Backus said the Democrats asked him to host an open house. In one of his previous letters it was the Democrats, the Republicans, and members of his staff. Next, it will probable be the cowardly lion, the tin man and the scarecrow.
Backus keeps inviting me to go see him at his office but he doesn’t say when he’s going to be there and I hear he’s not there much. I know he wasn’t in last Friday afternoon so maybe he can stop in to see me at my garage.
