Group again calls for removal of library board


WALLA WALLA — A citizens’ group is renewing its call for the ouster of the Walla Walla County Rural Library District board of trustees.

The Walla Walla Library Users Coalition sent a revised complaint Monday to the Walla Walla County commission.

In a news release accompanying the amended complaint — a previous call for the removal of the board was made in August — the coalition said the RLD board broke state open-meeting laws on a variety of occasions.

The full complaint and associated exhibits accompany the online version of this story at

The complaint is signed by Allen Kopf, LeeAnn Hughes, Jackie George and Betty Hull of Walla Walla and Karen Anderson of Waitsburg.

Here they go again. I've read the official complaint and 'supporting' documents.' I'm lost as to the goal of the five who signed the complaint. There is nothing I saw that indicated the RLD had had any secret meetings or took a vote over the phone or even by email regarding annexation plans. The City Council too, may discuss anything controversial before its council meetings and, if deemed prudent , may also chose to avoid certain issues or approaches to those issues entirely. The RLD letter to the City Council spoke of continuing with the strategic plan, in which annexation plans were not included. This strategic plan had been presented in a meeting, open to the public and was accepted by the RLD Board before the letter was sent.
