First we have the Clatsop County commissioners. They are having a problem with one commissioner spending about $20,000 in almost three years (“Lee calls for Thompson’s resignation,” The Daily Astorian, Oct. 26). No breaking of any rules or laws, some commissioners just don’t like it. So the solution is to make new rules.
Next we have the Port of Astoria commissioners. The Port executive director is responsible for lying and making a shady business deal without running it through a meeting. The Port lost a resulting $4 million lawsuit, and their solution was to give him a raise and a three-year extension (“Port of Astoria executive director gets three-year contract extension,” The Daily Astorian, Oct. 18).
