Another fire storm in Okanogan County

Letter to the Editor

There is another fire storm happening in Okanogan County. No…thank goodness it is not another catastrophic forest and rangeland fire. It is a storm however just as dangerous to our way of life. The Firestorms of 2014 and 2015 are the direct result of the environmental groups dictating policy and management of our public lands for the last 27 years.

This has proven to be disastrous to our people, destroyed private and public lands, burnt over a million acres of our natural resources and threatens the very survival of Okanogan County. These same environmental groups, Conservation Northwest, Future Wise and Methow Valley Citizens Council have members that are supporting the ROC propaganda campaign. They are also the very same groups that continue to launch lawsuits at our Country Commissioners for protecting our private property rights from extreme and restrictive environmental regulations.

Members of these organizations are supporting and funding all of the candidates running for our County Commissioner seats district 1 and 2 ... except for Sheilah Kennedy.

Please do not believe the propaganda and fabrication tactics that these liberal environmental groups are flooding the media with. Follow the money, seek the truth.

If you value our constitution, private property rights, access to public lands, common sense forest management practices, small government by and for the people in Okanogan County then join me in voting to retain Sheilah Kennedy. Sheilah is truthful, sincere, very hardworking and dedicated to protecting our rights as well as the customs and culture of the Okanogan. She has devoted the last 4 years of her life to serve the people of Okanogan County… she has worked tirelessly to oppose the constant environmental attacks on our way of life. Vote for the principles we all hold dear, please vote for Sheilah Kennedy.
