KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The announcement over the weekend that a Merrill woman is leading a recall against Klamath County Commissioner Dennis Linthicum brought responses from the board of commissioners on Tuesday.
In a news release, Sherri Biggs says she was frustrated with dealing with the board of commissioners. Since Linthicum is the only member of the board who has served long enough to be recalled, he’s the target for now.
She says Commissioners Tom Mallams and Jim Bellet will be named later. They say they are willing to discuss concerns with those who are upset.
“I encourage them to come and talk to us, individually, and don’t be part of the problem,” said Commissioner Bellet.
“We don’t have a proprietary relationship with various departments. We do not have any closed door policy with regard to the public at large,” said Dennis Linthicum.
A group called “Voters for Fiscal Responsibility” has until August 7th to gather nearly signatures from nearly 3,500 registered voters to force a recall election.
