Known him long time; Proud he’s a friend
Herald and News 3/23/08, letter to editor by John and Kathy Nowaski, Klamath Falls
We have many times thought we should write a letter to the editor on a variety of subjects. This time, we feel so strongly, that we must respond to the vitriolic commentary made concerning Commissioner Bill Brown.
We’ve known Bill for more than 30 years, from when he worked as a welder to his service as curriculum director for the county schools to his efforts on starting Klamath Community College.
We joined him when he coached Little League baseball. Our oldest son was one of his assistants. We voted for him for commissioner.
We have never seen Bill raise his voice in anger at anyone.
We can only imagine the frustration and futility Bill sees at the waste that occurs within our county government. Bill works for us, his friends and constituents.
If Bill got confrontational with any person, that person must have been wasting time or funds.
Bill would not have called them on anything unless they were not doing their jobs. Treasurer Mike Long should know that carrying a tape recorder can work both ways, as it just might prove Bill is right.
Apparently the situation has gone beyond repair, and there probably won’t be a positive resolution or discontinuation of animosity between the commissioners anytime soon.
We want everyone to know that we believe in Bill and we are proud to call him a friend.
