Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Put aside conflict, move KID forward
Letter to the editor by Pat Lunde, Klamath Falls, for Herald and News 5/28/16
One of the biggest challenges in
life is getting along with others and avoiding strife. On the
other hand, one of the sweetest things in life is seeing unity.
Why is the Klamath Irrigation District Board divided and not
able to conduct business on behalf of the irrigators? They took
an oath to oversee the management and finances of KID. Are Mr.
Cannon’s words to the board only heard by some? You need to put
aside your differences and find a path to move forward as the
KID Board. If you had an employee who misappropriated $213,000
would you not take action? If nothing was done wrong, why would
the employee seek legal justification from the board attorney?
Why would the attorney have a conflict of interest in
representing the board? I welcome an ethics investigation into
the board members, and the three attorneys. Let the chips fall
where they may. I stand behind my board representative, Grant
Knoll, and know he is doing what he feels is best for all KID
Irrigators. Do you think he enjoys making hard decision on our
behalf? The easy way is to continue down the same mismanagement
of KID. I applaud his courage for standing up for his district.
I thank Grant, Brent and Ken for making the correct decisions
and their daily effort to move KID forward.
