Letters to the editors – Kittitas County Media,
Hirst needs resolution now~
The July 19 “IN OUR VIEW” by the Daily Record Editorial Board got it completely wrong…
The reason that Hirst is now tied to the capital budget is because our Democrat Governor refuses to bargain in good faith. After agreeing with senate Republicans on the contentious two year budget, he went back on his word and vetoed the items that had caused the log jam.
If there is no trust between the branches, there is no trust period. The Democrats and the Governor have made the situation and Hirst is just another example. I congratulate the republicans for standing up for the most important Eastside issue and condemn the Daily Record for not recognizing that fact. Without a fix to the water issue birthed by DOE and now totally FUBRED by the State Supreme Court eastern Washington will wither and die.
The Governor says next year, I don’t believe or trust him and evidently the senate doesn’t either.
