The whole idea sounded like a con job from the beginning. Sort of like Kyle Technology way back when.


Matthew 7:17-20.



Why would the County even consider going into any business deal with these people?

Willie Stroker

Because the County is corrupt and the Commissioners want to personally profit off this deal. We knew this was a sham from the beginning...

"Pegasus prevailed in an appeal filed by the group 1,000 Friends of Oregon. The Oregon Court of Appeals upheld a decision by the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals, which had upheld Douglas County’s approval of the Pegasus project."

So by your logic Willie, the Oregon Land Use Board and the Oregon Court of Appeals are corrupt as well? While this whole Pegasus deal seems like a major grift - it appears their plans meet required land use laws. Making wild anonymous unsubstantiated accusations about corruption seems to be the new way people deal with things they don't like. By doing that, you are part of the problem.

How is the County involved in any way other than handling land use permitting through the Planning Department? When the Planning Commission approves land use permits they are not entering into a "business deal" with the entity that is granted the permit. That is a very uninformed comment.
