Rubber Stamp Ed

Even as Escambia County commissioners were deciding to postpone until next month the "condo-tel" vote, commissioner Gene Valentino was announcing his new choice for appointee to the Santa Rosa Island Authority's governing board. It's Elwyn "Ed" Guernsey, a Pensacola insurance agent.

Perfect. Who better for the role of Gene Valentino's rubber stamp than someone whose career is selling policies written by other folk rather than himself?

Just one suggestion: Guernsey could save taxpayers the $400 monthly SRIA board member honorarium if he just mails in his votes.
