So Yevonne Brannon, Chair of WakeUp Wake County's Board of Directors, suddenly got all righteous in the N&O today.

Let's review this new found righteousness exhibited by Mrs. Brannon as she recounted her tenure on the Wake County Board of Commissioners:

"We never experienced such lack of decorum ..."

"We all obeyed .... the unwritten rules of courtesy and integrity...."

"We are not serving our county when our excellent reputation is smeared weekly with political shenanigans that show little concern for our quality of life in Wake."

Gosh Yevonne, when did you have a reborn experience?

The highlight of your tenure on the Wake County Board of Commissioners was marked by your flippant disregard for taxpayers.

From the News & Observer:

The more the commissioners talked, the higher the proposed increase got. The figure reached 13 cents when Commissioner Betty Lou Ward was told that was roughly what corresponds to a $200 average tax-bill increase.

"Sold!" Brannon yelled as she leapt from her seat in a meeting room of Wake Forest University's Graylyn Conference Center. "Hey, you guys - the bar is open!"

Very impressive display of maturity there Mrs. Brannon.

Sober up Yevonne.
