Lincoln City Homepage Letters to the editorDear editor,

As voters in Oregon’s 5th Senate District, we are being asked to make a choice between Democratic candidate Melissa Cribbins and Republican candidate Dick Anderson.

In order to do so effectively, we need an answer to a very simple question: “will Anderson show up for work?”

In the time I have known Dick Anderson in his various elected capacities in Lincoln City, he has shown himself to be a dedicated and competent public servant. But in seeking election to the state senate’s Republican caucus, Anderson is hoping to join a group whose members repeatedly violated their oaths of office by walking out during the past two legislative sessions.

Some sought to justify the walkouts by claiming Democrats failed to offer sufficient compromises on key measures. This fails to recognize the fact that Democrats had earned a mandate for their policies by winning a majority of seats in the state legislature. By demanding concessions in exchange for a quorum, Republicans wanted the power of political leverage without the messy business of actually having to convince voters of their arguments.

Given that Anderson’s campaign has received cash and in-kind contributions totaling $33,291 from the Oregon Senate Republican Leadership Fund, a political action committee chaired by walkout architect Sen. Fred Girod, voters of the 5th district deserve a straight answer to the following question.

“If we confer upon you the privilege of being our state senator, do you pledge to fulfill your oath of office and reject any efforts by Republicans to deny the senate a quorum?”

I and my fellow voters await a response.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Alexander

  1. Anderson is a snake in the grass. It’s common knowledge that he has BS’d his way up the ladder. What credentials does he actually have? The support of the City Council, who happen to be his friends, and the worthless Jerry Palmer, chief of Police. Look at Melissa Cribbins’ credentials. She is sponsored by two pages worth of people, and fights for education on the Coast. She is educated and deserves to represent us here. Dick is a has-been, and should retire from public service.

  2. We’re not talking about Democrats, are we? All you MAGATS have one agenda: the blame game. You can’t seem to answer a simple question, but are experts on turning the tables to take the focus off your incompetence. Sit down and STFU.

  3. Mr. Hall would the Democrats walk ?. Cite some previous examples of such. I smell deflection. I think Patrick’s question is well phrased and completely valid. Many have been critical of Andersons “not showing up” during the fire emergencies. I would love to vote for a local and a friend but I too have the same question. Will he show up and buck the childish game of walkouts?

  4. I think Anderson could have shown up, in fact quite a few more politicians
    should have shown up.
    In any event, I’ll be cursed forever, as will the rest of you if the dumbnocrats
    get into power. The whole problem is career politicians, politics was not meant
    to be a lifelong occupation, and the founding fathers never could have dreamt
    that someone would spend 30, 40,50 years or more in politics, otherwise,
    they’d have set term limits for all positions,not just the president.

  5. It is also common knowledge that Anderson and his city council are ruining our city. The whole lot of them should be removed and investigated.
