Dear Marathon County Board of Supervisors, Your timing is off. Best, Retiring Guy

Wouldn't this action been more appropriately approved a month ago?

Marathon Co. Board to vote on resolution to make June Pride Month. (WAOW, 9/18/2019)
“The resolution is not meant to alienate anybody or exclude anybody, but rather send a strong statement that Marathon County is a welcoming community for all” Yee Leng Xiong, the chair of the Diversity Affairs Commission said. 
The County Board will vote on the resolution at their next meeting Tuesday, June 25.

But wait, there's more!
