Linthicum will sustain fight for rural areas

Herald and News letter to the editor by Virginia Topham, Sprague River 10/22/16


The Herald and News says the main difference between the two candidates running for State Senate District 28 is their view on water issues. As I see it, the race is partially a referendum on water.

Dennis Linthicum is opposed to the plan to destroy the Klamath River dams. We are told Pacific Corp. is a private entity and it has the right to determine their own future.

I take exception to that view as I have never had any input on dam removal as a Pacific Power rate payer. Have you looked at your Pacific Power bill lately? For years now, I have been charged a surcharge on JC Boyle Dam and Copco Iron Gate dam removal.

The Public Utilities Commission granted Pacific Power a rate increase on the dam removal surcharge effective July 1. I side with Dennis Linthicum — no dam removal.

Dennis has been my neighbor and friend for 20 years. He is a principled person which is a rarity in this day and age. I respect Dennis, who stands by this convictions and doesn’t stick his finger in the air to test which way the wind is blowing.

Dennis is the person I need in Salem to represent me. I urge you to join me in electing Dennis Linthicum the next State Senator for District 28. Dennis Linthicum will continue the legacy to Doug Whitsett and fight for rural Oregon.
