ROC Spins Reality

Letter to the Editor

 


True to form, members of the group claiming to Represent Okanogan County (ROC) are taking a little bit of fact and putting their own spin on it in an attempt to suppress open dialogue among the citizens of Okanogan County when that dialogue pertains to them or their county commissioner candidates.

Members most recently took offense regarding a letter I wrote questioning the tactics used at public “forums” of which they were an active part of. Quoting only a portion of what I said and adding that I wrote they had “sponsored” the forums, they proceeded to suggest that I do research prior to voicing concerns.

I would like to thank ROC members for then proceeding to confirm the points I actually did write about.

Folks in Okanogan County do research issues and organizations, especially when those organizations claim to “represent” them.

How else would we learn that ROC failed to file as a political action committee while accepting political contributions?

How else would we learn that the very people writing the “research” opinion papers and taking notes for ROC are “moderating” and organizing the political “forums”?

How else would we learn that ROC has tightly interwoven ties to Seattle-based special interest groups such as Conservation NW and Futurewise?

The list goes on, but hopefully ROC members understand my point and will attempt to restrain themselves from spinning any more of their alternate realities for the people of Okanogan County.
