Houser responds to Erceg cherry bomb

Houser called John Erceg’s analysis “whacko,” though he acknowledged that Langston does a lot of the talking at supervisor meetings.

“Just because your mouth isn’t flapping all the time doesn’t mean your brain isn’t thinking,” Houser said. “If Linda wants to talk, you’ve got to sit and be respectful of that. You don’t want to be just a domineering person on the board and try to compete.”

He pointed out that Langston is the chairwoman of the board, so she naturally tends to lead discussion.

“She talks a lot. That’s not a bad thing. I’m not going to criticize her for that,” Houser said. “Next year when I’m chair, I’ll be fulfilling the same role.”

He also argued that the current supervisors make a good team, even though they each have a different approach.
