Extra! Gus Speaks …

... On Kootenai County letterhead. In a press release, Commissioner Gus Johnson sent out this statement via fax re: his election defeat Tuesday:

"After reflecting on the last three days after the election, I would like to thank my supporters and those who voted for me in Tuesday's primary election. It means a lot to me. Congratulations to those winners -- I wish you well as you move forward with your public service. Congratulations and thank you to those candidates who were unsuccessful in their election. You provided debate and dialogue that is important in order for the county and state to grow. It has been a true honor for me to serve as your commissioner for these past five years. I look forward to doing my job for the next seven months. Thank you."

Question: Who wrote this for Gus? Rick Clarke? Or Cynthia Taggart? And how much did they get paid?
