The Dalles Out of place
To the editor:
Thank you for the editorial called “A Matter of Propriety and Perception.”
I, too, felt that Bill Dick was out of place to ask for more funding for the Discovery Center. He has been on that board since the beginning and should have put his talents into doing audits. Why did all those years go by with an employee taking money? And who is left to pay for all this? More tax dollars going for this mistake and Discovery Center has been a drain on all taxpayers.
It is a wonderful facility, but it has never paid for itself. It was to be a federal program and thousands of people were to come!
This goes for a wake-up call for all who serve on boards — and push their biases.
Having a business in the downtown The Dalles is not a good place to be. The town is going to be bare if the city council keeps hitting the businesses with more fees.
