Everybody wants more transparency…at least from everybody else. Therefore, Kimberli S. Holmquist, I would like to encourage, from your group, “Community Rights Douglas County”, the same type of full-disclosure that you desire from our commissioners.
You say that “Community Rights Douglas County” has no connection to Umpqua Watersheds, but John Hunter is the president…hmm. Alright, what percentage of your group are also supporters of Umpqua Watersheds (coincidentally of course)? What percentage of your group were involved in protesting the logging of Busenbark Park … and then, the ridiculous revolution over the removal of dead and dying danger trees from other county parks? What percentage of your group was involved with the initiative known as “Home Rule”? By the way, the “Home Rule” folks also insisted that they had no connection to Umpqua Watersheds…hmm. I guess nobody wants to be connected to Umpqua Watersheds anymore.
If I’ve become a little over-bearing in a time when Trump-supporting conservatives like myself are being censured, canceled and blackballed, I’m sorry…not sorry. We live in one of the few, predominantly-conservative counties on the West Coast, and I intend to do everything in my power to keep it that way. Therefore, I have three more questions for you, Kimberli…in the name of transparency. What percentage of your group are Progressive Democrats, or at least politically “left-leaning”? Does your group have an agenda to insert liberal, left-leaning elected officials (i.e. commissioners) into Douglas County’s government? In other words, are you guys trying to bring Kate Brown’s crap right into our own house?
I think not! You are concerned about the type of poisons that the county uses as herbicides on county lands. I can relate to that… I’m concerned about the kind of political poisons that groups like yours might want to apply to county’s like ours.
