Gov. Brown abruptly fires most members of Environmental Quality Commission

SALEM In a highly unusual move, Gov. Kate Brown on Wednesday fired three of the five members of the Environmental Quality Commission, the governor-appointed board that oversees the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality.

Brown ousted commissioners Colleen Johnson, Morgan Rider and Melinda Eden.

The move came without warning via a phone call at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to Johnson.

Johnson was nominated for a second four-year term by Brown and re-confirmed by the Senate just three and half months ago. Rider had another 15 months left in her term; Eden had three months remaining in her term.

1. Interesting story at link---thanks for posting it.

I went on to read another story in the Guard about the 82,000+ acres of Eliot Forest almost being sold to a logging company.

Geez I gotta start paying more attention to what's happening in my state! I assumed that everything was okay with Democrats being in charge.

2. You're welcome.

I suggest subscribing to the group so that the subscriptions tab at top will light up whenever someone posts a new OP. While I try hard, I probably only get 25%-35% of the news happening in the state. However, it is better than no coverage at all.
