Switzer’s background says vote for Reschke
Letter to editor of Herald and News by David Warren, Klamath
I plan on
voting for Werner Reschke for State Representative District
56. A quick look back at Mr. Switzer’s history as a county
commissioner is very telling.
He promoted and
approved spending $75,000 for a brand new roof for the
County Road Shop building on Washburn Way. He then
spearheaded the construction of a brand new road shop
building, spending an additional $20 million of county tax
dollars. When “completed”, portions of the facility did not
said no to the entire new facility project, especially after
putting a very expensive new roof on the existing structure
with a 20-year warranty.
also signed on to the Klamath dam removal agreement and the
Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement. To add insult to
injury, a month before leaving office, he signed on to
amendments to these two agreements, which allowed the
agreements to keep moving forward. This was done fully
knowing that the voters did not want him to say yes to these
Do we really
want someone representing us in Salem that has a continued
history of ignoring the very citizens he now wants to
represent? I think not! We have enough politicians who
ignore the citizens.
If you think
Mr. Switzer has learned his lesson, and is now going to
listen to the citizens, guess again. The vast majority of
his campaign money is coming from the dam removal and KBRA
supporters. A candidate may try to ignore history, but he
cannot change history.
For me, I will
vote for Werner Reschke, a successful local businessman, who
understands how tax-and-spend politicians will ruin rural
Oregon. Werner is a true conservative, with a proven history
of success, who will work for what is best for all of us,
not just special interests.
