Attention bureaucrats

If you play hide-the-ball with public records, it could wind up costing you.

Maybe port commissioners ought to be elected directly by the public, instead of appointed by their politician pals.

The Coos Bay port CEO is David Koch? That's too creepy.

"No governmental body that can raise taxes, OR pass laws affecting the general public, shall exist without a duly elected board of directors by the citizens who reside in the district of which said taxing or lawmaking authority exist."

Should be in the state Constitution. Easy pass. Would be mighty devastating to port districts and transit districts across the state who would no longer be allowed to act with inpunity to the citizens they are supposed to serve with pride and honor, but instead extend the middle finger to with glee.
