Bill Woolsey appears to be a two-faced, if not absentminded, professor. While claiming to be a Libertarian, he is actually a double-dipping politician/bureaucrat who earns over $110,000 a year from a government supported college and a municipality. He, along with Mary Clark, helped foster the useless layer of government known as the Town of James Island on citizens who were perfectly happy with the James Island Public Service District.
Woolsey may live on James Island, but he works in the City of Charleston, and is hardly any more qualified to manage the town than Clark. He offers advice to entrepreneurs while he himself may never have run a business in his life.
It is difficult to understand how he could move the swearing in schedule up to suit the travel plans of some of the town council members, when he is technically not in charge. But is was nice of Mary Clark to step aside and let him start his regime.
Woolsey has offered an olive branch to Mayor Riley, and some would suggest he is a Riley plant. But only time will tell if the brutal realities of managing a governmental entity will rise up show him the true meaning of impotence. The old saying still applies. What goes around, comes around. Like all politicians, Woolsey has made the mistake of promising what he cannot possible deliver. And it will come back to bite him time and again.
Thus far he appears to be just another self-aggrandizing egotist with an axe to grind. It just doesn't sit well he is not able to let bygones be bygones and wish Mary a Happy Birthday in parting. And we surely hope he doesn't break his hand slapping himself on the back, and finds a little humility somewhere along the way.
