RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am very conservation oriented and usually support spending public money on habitat restoration and conservation. However, as a very involved citizen, the financial corruption, mismanagement, and abusive practices toward citizens that I've personally seen at OWEB and inside watershed councils is forcing me to vote "no" on Measure 76 (with a very heavy heart) - NOT because I don't agree with the stated goals but because I believe the system needs to be completely overhauled. As it is currently organized, it is WAY too easy for corruption to occur....for citizen abuse to occur.
Before I finalize my ballot today and vote for Governor, I would like to know what Governor Kitzhaber plans to do about this extensive problem.
