Helen is still a pretty sharp cookie for her age Seriously? She couldn't remember that she hadn't written up an employee when she testified under oath that she did. Yeah, sharp as a tack.
Ive heard she went to MESD because she wanted to help with the flood issues
She could have helped just as much from her seat on the county board. Here's what happened. Prenzler used her as a tool, to be his vote to get rid of the union workers. That's blowing up in his face and in the face of the MESD board. Helen doesn't like controversy. She likes to be a vote for her "constituents" but when the heat is on she backs away. Thus her request to get her county board seat back.
Couple that with a other candidates for her board seat who would not have been a Prenzler tool but a level headed vote, like Mr. Chris and you see where we are.
Credit Helen if you want to. She's a very nice lady. She's a weak board member.
