GRANTS PASS, Ore. — One activist who has been vocal in his opposition to this November’s ballot measures was excited both that the measures were defeated, but also because it was a landslide which he said sends a loud and clear message. This might just be the beginning.
An effort to have a total recall of the Josephine County Commissioners is said to begin Wednesday. Public activist and critic of the commissioners, Dale Matthews said a petition will begin and hopefully be completed by May for the recall.
Matthews said the recall isn’t just because he disagrees with their ideas.
“Because they weren’t honest with us in the process, and you can put up with politicians that come up with bad ideas — where are you going to find any other kind of politician — what you can’t do is put up with politicians who are going to try and pull the wool over your eyes,” said Matthews.
Among the issues against the commissioners Matthews highlighted was a battle over a voter’s pamphlet for Tuesday’s election.
