Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Gail Whitsett is right for the job
Herald and News Letter to the Editor, April 19, 2012
Tracey Liskey is a friend of mine. But I am voting for Gail Whitsett (Oregon House of Representatives, district 56).
Here’s why: Tracey is effective and engaged in Oregon Farm Bureau. Gail Whitsett is effective and engaged in the state Legislature. Gail knows the ins and outs of the legislative process. She is up and running, ready for the office she is running for. She is the right woman for the job.
Speaking of right, Gail is conservative and respectful of individual freedoms and rights. Gail is able to put the expansive and regulatory-minded bureaucrats in Salem in their place. She calls it the way it is and has the knowledge to back our advocacy.
While her opponent has talked of expanding our tax base, making a “bigger pie,” his other hand is promoting the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, a federalization of our Klamath Basin that reduces taxable, private land holdings. You cannot have it both ways. More federal jobs, more federal regulations, more federal land holdings means less tax base.
I want less government in my life. I want a lean and effective state government with fewer of my tax dollars spent on middle management. I want someone representing me in the state Legislature who will look out for rural Oregon. Smart, compassionate and articulate. Able to give the state administrations the oversight they need but do not want. Sorry Tracey, Gail Whitsett has my vote for House seat 56.
