"...none of the [Ward 3 city council] candidates opposed or supported the Wal-Mart outright."In today's edition of the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, Michelle Dupler wrote the following about Judy Krueger's campaign:
She [Krueger] continues to feel strongly that Wal-Mart is an important issue for voters. Pioneer Hill resident Jeff Bohlscheid agreed, saying his vote for Krueger was strongly influenced by her opposition to the proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter.Ah, another well-articulated argument against Wal-Mart. Opponents are always visceral, elitist, and completely misinformed. Perhaps Mr. Bohlscheid only shops at Macy's and Nordstrom, but Wal-Mart offers thousands of name brand items, and yes at cheap prices. That has been their recipe for unprecedented success.
"I'm not really happy with that being in town," Bohlscheid said. "I'm tired of junk. Just low quality, poor quality items. Wal-Mart is just promoting cheap, poor-quality stuff that breaks."
Joel Mills had better leave the Pullman political reporting to those who know it best and learn not to take candidate's statements at face value.
