Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

To the citizens of Crook County: in 2022 the Legislature passed a bill mandating training for boards and elected officials.

The intent was probably good, however there is a clause that enables removal of persons that don’t comply.

The training (possibly indoctrination) is 8 hours!!!

Very few people have the time to accomplish this!!

Some have been threatened with removal.

If you have, please let me know right away.

I personally will not comply for several reasons. We offer training for our boards and don’t need the heavy-handed higher authorities mandating this.

Please contact me...
