Letters to the Editor for July 20, 2009

Wait until the next election

To the editor:

Several city councilors felt that Steve Brocato was an effective and efficient city manager. Others found him to be abrasive to the public and disrespectful of the city council. Unfortunately for him, the latter group was in the majority, and he is now our ex-city manager.

Now we have calls for boycotting York's and Bella's. Petitions to recall Dennis Dorrah and Bev Calder are being circulated. What next? Shall supporters of Dorrah and Calder ask for a boycott of businesses that support their recall? Should the anti-Brocato side seek to recall pro-Bocato councilors? Enough is enough!

Letters to the Editor for July 3, 2009

Think before signing petition

To the editor:

I was dismayed when I read the article about the sidewalk graffiti (Baker City Herald, June 19). The person(s) who did this are in the same class as the writers of anonymous letters, hateful, cowardly, vindictive. Do the supporters of Brocato condone this behavior?

Immediately following Brocato’s dismissal the spate of letters praising him and vilifying certain city councilors had all the earmarks of an organized campaign, especially since it was followed by recall petitions against Mayor Dorrah and Councilor Calder. All this will eliminate any possibility of helping Brocato but it might hurt Calder and Dorrah, which appears to be the intent of the campaign.
