LIVE! TODAY @ 4:00 pm Pacific It's the Boze Noze Show! What a great #TimberUnity Rally in Salem! I will have a full report. Monday I spent the day in Salem at the Association of Oregon Counties legislative meetings. In that meeting, Chair Buch showed just how much she is in the pocket of AFSCME. That evening I attended a Veneta City Council work session on a proposal to share the cost of adding a School Resource Officer to the Fern Ridge School District. At our Board meeting yesterday we heard from the City of Cottage Grove about how they are removing barriers to housing and the Board approved their request to offer tax incentives to stimulate even more construction. Our Board also discussed housing but Commissioner Sorenson seems focused on taxing folks and using the money internally to build housing, something I do not support. I again reminded the Board that we are not getting our fair share of revenue from federal forests and we should reconsider our membership in the only organization lobbying for increasing federal timber harvest and funding from our O&C Railroad Lands to help provide funding for rural Sheriff's patrol and housing efforts
