This last Wednesday, I had the pleasure to attend the Northwest Business Club’s monthly luncheon at the Bellingham Elk’s Club. Admittedly, I really wasn’t sure that I was excited to sit through and listen to a thirty minute presentation by the Whatcom County Assessor. Well, I’d never actually met or listened to Mr. Willnaeur, so I thought; What the heck I might learn something new today. Guess what? I did! Not only did I learn something new, it was delivered in an entertaining format by an eloquent speaker. After Mr. Willnaeur had completed his presentation I had a new appreciation for his office and a greater confidence that Whatcom County has a true professional at the helm of one of our Counties most important public offices. Mr. Willnaeur is in a position that requires a high degree of honesty, integrity and he gives it just a splash of what I can only describe as “a Bob Newhart humility.”
Please take a moment to enjoy this video. The video was produced by Wylin Tjoelker, and has been made available due to the generosity of the Northwest Business Club. Also, if you like what you see, please consider attending one of the Northwest Business Club’s speaker luncheons, or becoming a member. It’s well worth the cost and I guarantee you that every speakers luncheon I have attended has been some of the best theater I have observed in my lifetime.
