Beware The Clackamas County Decepticons...
I’m not a big fan of recalls aimed at political
figures unless the acts they’ve committed are so shocking that you can’t wait
till the next election. Mayor Sam Adams
comes to mind but in his case, two recalls didn’t remove him. Go Figure.
Now the citizens of Clackamas County have been informed that even though
they vote in less than three weeks on the question of tens of millions of
dollars in funding for light rail they don’t want, the county commission plans
to take the decision away from them before the vote is even held.
Here’s what we know:
Voters will case ballots in mid
September. The county commissioners
figure voters will easily say “no” to funding, so the commissioners arranged to
sell bonds and pay the bill before the voters cast ballots. These commissioners should face a recall over
something this big, this expensive, and for spitting in the face of citizens and
Government in every corner of
this country has been behaving like a bully; shaking down the people it’s
supposed to be serving.
The voters should let them know who’s boss...
