Lacey history this week 1991

November 24th, 2015 by Ken

Lacey City Manager Greg Cuoio –  – who had been in line to take over leadership of the Lacey Area Chamber of Commerce next week – – resigned from the chamber board.

Guoio had been working his way up the chamber board and was scheduled to take over as president on December 1 – – but controversy swirled around a government official heading a business organization.    As I wrote in 1991 – – “Business and government are mortal enemies.   Business wants to regulate and tax business, while business doesn’t want to be regulated and taxed.”

While Cuoio said he could do the job as president and remain neutral when conflict arose – – the chamber decided it didn’t need a leader who would remain neutral, but one that would fight business regulations and taxes.  This week, Cuoio resigned from the board and the future presidency.
