LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Port doesn’t run parks

To the editor:

The Oct. 31 editorial is inaccurate, biased and rude. Who wrote it, and did they even have one full conversation with the Port of South Whidbey? I bet not, since the editorial is so incorrect. And why are they making Bill Oakes into being the saint in this case?

First of all, the port is not in the parks business necessarily, although they are very interested in working together with the county as well as the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation people to make sure this beach works for the people and visitors of Whidbey Island, as well as all the public budgets involved.

The Robinsons have made a grand offering to all of us, let’s not allow the newspaper to lead by petty misinformation.
