ABERDEEN COUNCIL TO JOIN WILD OLYMPICS DEBATE

Perhaps driven by years of perceived abuse by environmentalists, the Aberdeen City Council has proposed a resolution against the Wild Olympics proposal, a measure that would add over 200-thousand acres of Olympic Peninsula land to government control and regulation. Outdoor enthusiast and Wild Olympics opponent Dan Boeholt urged the council’s support of a resolution, which many were ready to support after hearing one side of the argument. Councilwoman Kathi Hoder called it a vote “for common sense” and was joined in her opposition by several other council members, while councilman Frank Gordon urged restraint and a chance for Wild Olympics supporters to address the council.  In the end, the council voted for the city to bring the resolution forward at the future meeting for debate and a final vote.
