To the Editor:

Mark Webb, executive director of Blue Mountains Forest Partners, stated in a letter to the editor that John George has a “deep misunderstanding” of the 501(c)(3) status they operate under and are not required to release any information concerning their finances. Yet, Mr. Webb also said by IRS rules they are “only” required to release their last three years’ financial records. I am requesting the last three years of the BMFP records as Webb indicated they are bound to do by regulations as operating as a 501(c)(3) organization. I am anxious to share the forthcoming and timely delivered information with others that are wondering how the BMFP, a volunteer-based nonprofit, can pay Mark Webb a salary of $50,000. The sources of funding for the collaborative group should prove interesting.
