Mayor McGrady has appointed two cronies to the Aberdeen Planning Commission. Crony number one is Mike Hiob, a former councilman and a failed candidate for mayor. Mr. Hiob was thrown off the Council by voters for his efforts in support of the Wetlands Annexation political shenanigans.
The second McGrady crony appointted to the Planning Commission is Jason Kolligs. He was defeated in the last election for city council. The Mayor tried to appoint crony Kolligs to the city council to fill the tied-vote empty seat but failed. The seat was later filled by another McGrady crony.
