A stupid mistake

August 7th, 2016 by Ken

Word has it that the Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater Visitor and Convention Bureau wants to change its moniker and drop Lacey and Tumwater from its name.

That’s the worse decision made by a local entity since the Olympia chamber of commerce dropped Olympia from its name.

For all of the cooperation among the three cities, this is NOT one large homogenized community.  These are three separate cities, with different lifestyles and different points of view.

Newcomers to this area will do well to understand the historical and political differences of the three cities.  They ignore them at their peril.   It appears to me that newcomers are in charge at the Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia Visitor and Convention Bureau and are heading down the wrong road.  There’s a lot at stake to make a stupid mistake.
