We hate to brag and say that we told you so…but as confirmed by the Honorable John Chiv, Humboldt County CAO Phillip Smith-Hanes is headed for the Midwest. (Just kidding- we absolutely love saying that we told you so!)
And not just anywhere in the Midwest, no. Smith-Hanes decided it was time to pull those ruby slippers out from under the bed and head to Kansas.
Which makes Smith-Hanes just one more County employee to hit the Yellow Brick Road at the beginning of 2016.
Remember Crandall? He’s laughing his way to the bank. What a great 16-year prank he pulled, screwing the DHHS and the entire county over. Ha! The jokester. Too bad he didn’t have a brain.
Remember Hamblin? He’s out of here too, although we actually think that’s a shame. Too-da-loo, Kevin, and we hope you feel better, you big cuddly lion!
Remember Kristin Brinks? Yeah, probably not. She was only in Humboldt for, like, a day or something before she turned tail and rain. Some say she didn’t have a heart, turning her back on those in need in Humboldt. We think she just actually had a brain (like Smith-Hanes), and got the f*** out while the getting was good.
