Letter to the editor published Sept. 11


Resident disappointed in Dan Brown dismissal

To the editor:

I was shocked to read Mr. (Dan) Brown has been fired with no reason (See “Woodburn Public Works director fired without cause,” Sept. 4, 2013 edition of the Woodburn Independent).

I watched him work with the people of Fifth Street widening project, and I found him to be very accommodating with an unusual project. The outcome I am sure is appreciated by all people involved.

He also worked with the water projects with three manufactured home parks.

I feel that the citizens of Woodburn should vote to retain Mr. Brown unless a viable reason can be produced. This has a damaging effect on him and his ability to meet his obligations.

Please reconsider this error.
