Time to Take Action
Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.

2007 Wish list, Doug Whitsett, state senator, Dist. 28

 Our first priority must be to provide for our seniors, disabled, and veterans. They are the folks that worked to build, and fought to preserve, the infrastructure and lifestyle that we enjoy. They are the unfortunate whose disabilities prevent self support. It is unacceptable that they are collectively losing the budget battle for adequate care.

Safety in our homes and our communities is vital. Local judges agree that the root cause of more than 90 percent of the personal and property crimes in our community are drug and alcohol related. We must attack alcohol and drug abuse through both law enforcement and intervention and treatment.

Preservation of our agricultural and municipal water resources is vital to our small town culture, economy, and lifestyle. We have witnessed the financial and ecological disaster created by the 2001 water shut off to Project farms. Our community must unite in opposition to those who continue their efforts to decimate our community by denying our use of our water resource.
