Dallas Heard is not who I want representing us in the Oregon Senate
Dallas Heard is one of the candidates being considered to replace Jeff Kruse. I would like to remind folks who still believe in democracy, that in a January 11, 2016 interview with The News-Review, Mr. Heard was quoted as saying, “It’s not about people. It’s about a land grab, and it’s about control because the people that are in charge of those policy decisions, they live in Washington, D.C., for the most part, or it’s some environmental group who shouldn’t have an opinion, who should not have the seat at the table that they do.”
I repeat, “some environmental group who shouldn’t have an opinion, who should not have the seat at the table.”
Really? We are talking about a Wildlife Sanctuary. To state that someone should not have an opinion or should be denied a seat at the table is not the democratic way to solve anything. Is this who we want to represent us in the Oregon Senate? Methinks not.
