To the Editor:

One only has to look at the key voting members of the Blue Mountain Forest Partners, the local collaborative group, to see through their motives. Their cronyism amounts to feathering their own nest and diligently protecting it. The executive director receives a salary of $50,000 or more. One member has water trucks for fires that depends on the goodwill of the Forest Service to be hired. Another is overall boss of a local firefighting entity. There is a paid advertiser for the sole stewardship contractor for the Malheur Forest. Round that off with a well paid attorney from an environmental organization, and one can see why “coordination” is worrisome to the collaborative group. Just wanted to shed a little light on the subject.
