Richard keeps sending out his missives about the Klamath Dam Removal process.
And I keep thinking, "You stupid dumbass."
Back in 2002, Richard Salzman volunteered in two political campaigns - Paul Gallegos and Jill Geist.
Both took office in January of 2003.
Of the two candidates Salzman supported, one has proven to be an independent thinker, making decisions based on what is best for the people of the county, and one has proven to be "bought and paid for," one has chosen to deride and distance himself from the very agencies that are key to the successful operation of his department. The other has kept her campaign promises and understands her job, has proven her ability to work with the many county departments and state and county governmental agencies, and shown respect for the people as well as the process.
Richard Salzman has repeatedly had to cover for, and make excuses for Paul Gallegos, and chosen to attack all who he perceives to stand in his way, including County Supervisor Jill Geist.
BUT. the really funny thing is, Richard could have chosen differently. He could have chosen the candidate of which he could have been proud.
Jill Geist has been working on the Klamath Dam Removal. Which Richard Salzman purports to care about, as he exhorts his "listserve" followers to lobby their Congressmen, cheering for more predatory litigious action, and, now "Send money." (to him)
Apparently, poor Richard doesn't realize that there are Settlement Negotiations ongoing. There is no need for histrionics.
The quiet hard-working people are getting the job done - for the right reasons. And they're not asking for any money.
Guess he needs to make his new house payment.
(and he tries again - but why would you pay him for warmed over Times-Standard articles? Just google Maxxam, or Pacific Lumber yourself, or sign up for your own google alerts.)
