Reader questions commissioners
Our county commissioners make questionable decisions. Why don’t they address serious issues? What have they done or proposed to address homelessness, lack of affordable housing, sheriff funding, crime, jail and blight? It seems they would rather whine about being misunderstood, disliked, or unappreciated instead of doing their job to serve Josephine County. By the way, can I have a park? You seem willing to give away what is not yours to give to your good buddies or the Lark would suffice!
