I want to be clear the recent Willamette Week article crosses the line in taking our business to the public forum. I have consistently asked members not to make the issue of Al’s past legal problems a campaign issue. I was told by Matt Walters the issue was being addressed and later by John Endicott that the issue had been resolved.
There are three things we can learn from this: 1. To give all the information possible to the membership in a timely manner. 2. We must treat everyone equally. 3. We must learn from the past so we don’t repeat the mistakes in the future.
