Letter to the Editor
August 17, 2023
To the citizens of Crook County: in 2022 the Legislature passed a bill mandating training for boards and elected officials.
The intent was probably good, however there is a clause that enables removal of persons that don’t comply.
The training (possibly indoctrination) is 8 hours!!!
Very few people have the time to accomplish this!!
Some have been threatened with removal.
If you have, please let me know right away.
I personally will not comply for several reasons. We offer training for our boards and don’t need the heavy-handed higher authorities mandating this.
