Organization should be reprimanded for behavior

The Kenai River Sportfishing Association’s behavior of late is entirely worthy of a “time out” given to an immature child acting inappropriately. KRSA unethically tapped into a private United Fisherman of Alaska (UFA) teleconference with the intent of furthering their unique form of sleazy politics. KRSA then shared the ill-gotten teleconference info with others with the intent to disparage and worse. KRSA viciously spun and twisted facts and then used them to assault and discredit Vince Webster as he was considered for confirmation by the Legislature for a seat on the Board of Fisheries. KRSA’s unethical behavior reflect on just what the true nature of the intended contribution to our community KRSA would have.

It would be this writer’s suggestion that KRSA be afforded a lengthy time out until such time that they have demonstrated consistent and documentable behavior playing by the rules that those of us with a moral and ethical compass would consider standard operating procedure. Included in this “time out” should an unwillingness of news media (Clarion included) to use KRSA, its executive director of self-ascribed importance, or any of its board, as a credible source for anything save the time of low-water on the tide. Certainly KRSA and company have demonstrated a command of what is low, low, low.
