In accepting yet another six-figure contribution from big oil interests, port commission candidate Kris Greene has given our community a substantial opportunity. What is it? A chance to draw a solid line in the sand that says “yell, no!” We will no longer allow big business with its endless deep pockets to hijack our elections.
No matter which side citizens are on regarding the oil depot, all should be outraged that our democratic process can so easily be circumvented by exorbitant infusions of cash. Who among us does not clearly understand that favor is always the objective behind that money?
