Great letter Mr. Johnson. We are truly lucky to have such a qualified and experienced sheriff in our county.
This is a great letter Scott. I am proud to have you as our Chief of Police.
As far as I know the property is not for sale or lease. All I know is the owner has plans for that building and right now there is a man living there. I think having a homeless shelter is a great idea. Perhaps you guys should purchase or lease a property that is for sale/lease instead of trying to take over someone else's property that isn't for sale/lease. There are several large properties for sale in Walla Walla right now that are available. I don't think I need to chill out. I think you guys should follow the laws, legally purchase or lease a property to do wish as you wish, not take over someone else's property that isn't for sale and has tenant. No anarchy please. Just because I may want some extra money, doesn't mean I can/should rob a bank. Just because you guys like someone else's property doesn't mean you can make it what you want. Go about it the right way. Lease or purchase a property that is available.
I am sorry. My comment was quite harsh. However, I do not think it is up to you, Beth or the City of Walla Walla to turn someone else's property into something other than what the owner wants it to be. How would you like it if I (or someone else) suggested that your home be turned into a homeless shelter? Think about it. Crazy right? It isn't up to me to decide what you do with your property. That is the choice of the owner. That was the point I was trying to make. The thought that people in our community would want to take that control over someone (anyone's) property, just because they want to, is wrong and scary.
Beth. The McFeely Hotel is not empty! The building has an owner and there is a man who lives there. You can walk down there any day of the week and meet the man who lives there. How rude to suggest using someone else's property; a property that has owners and a tenant. Perhaps we should use your house. You have a fine idea. Why don't you buy some property and turn it into a homeless shelter instead of insisting the city take over someone's property and residence.
Great letter Erin Morgan. I too was offended by Cooper's comments regarding the receptionist position. It was insulting to all administrative professionals. You do a lot of important job functions as the receptionist. @ George136 - Prove it. Law enforcement agencies (and most employers) do background checks on employees. I am sure her qualifications, education and experience are not exaggerated and were verified before employment. Why would she lie and exaggerate her duties and education when writing a very public letter using her real name. ??? How horrible that you would even suggest that she is lying about that.
Are you trying to intimidate me? You two have a thing for name calling and negativity. I won't stoop to your low low level. Enjoy your misery.
R.E. Castillo, from your letter you appear to be a very angry person. Take a moment and calm down. Seek help. Wow. Insulting the moderator? Low class, really, Castillo. Tom Scribner did an excellent job moderating. Turner a bully? Have you read your letter? You sound like the bully. You should have taken your own advice and taken the high road before writing such a nasty angry letter. You are not doing Cooper any favors.
It also seems that Cooper's comment is an insult to receptionists and administrative assistants everywhere. Should they all feel ashamed of their jobs? Are their jobs not important? At least receptionists and administrative assistants are working every day instead of living off the tax payers $$.
I heard a few days ago that Cooper had not responded to their invitation to speak. I am not sure if he has responded by now but last I heard Cooper was going to be a no show. Not sure who the other person is.
