Shame on Jack Debnam and Jackson’s citizens

Written by 

To the Editor:

Friends, they’ve out-waited us. And, motivated by the smell of money, they appear to have outlasted us as well and are – right now – in the process of outmaneuvering us.

Jackson County’s land-use ordinances were enacted six years ago at the urging of and with the strong support of county residents; this was accomplished over the vigorous opposition of area developers (some county-based, some not). Now it’s six years later and Jack Debnam and Co., aka the majority faction of Jackson County’s Board of Commissioners, are busily pulling the original ordinances’ teeth and concocting a more developer-friendly set of rules.

Shame on Debnam and his cronies for working hard and quietly to subvert the demonstrated wishes of Jackson County residents, and shame on us for watching it happen and doing nothing about it.

That notion — a wife and kids — has been the furthest things from my mind for years.
