Letter to the editor

Clarion — get your facts straight. After all public comments were made at the Nov. 5 Anadromous Task Force meeting, the “facilitator” made several biased comments. He made personal comments at the end of the meeting where he had the last word, not the public — many find that inappropriate. In an inquiry of whether or not neighboring Boroughs allow their Chief of Staff or Deputy Mayor to act as a voting member of a of a task force while acting as the facilitator, the verdict is it’s an ethical conflict of interest.

Also, the Anadromous Task Force was and still is unbalanced. The Anadromous Task Force consists of members from the State, Borough, River Center, Fish & Game, Borough Assembly members, Borough Planning Commission, a KPC scientist, and only two private property owners that have no tie to the State/Borough. Do you really think the Clarion needs to protect and defend Paul Ostrander? How about the Clarion just report the facts for a change — without a slant. Make sure when you report the facts, you report all the facts — not just one sided facts.
