JOHN DAY: Friction between government and some residents

JOHN DAY: Friction between government and some residents

The Grant County Court met yesterday morning. Resident Bob Pereira had some concerns regarding the City of John Day. Pereira read a prepared statement in front of the court:

“I believe that the City of John Day is headed toward building an infrastructure that they themselves cannot afford. This is done by manipulation in the form of money laundering-like tactics. Unfortunately, up to this point the County has fallen for all the well-managed continuing propaganda narratives in their goals.”

In his statement, Pereira expressed concerned that the city is putting more pressure on taxpayers. He also asked the county to pull out of the Grant County Digital Network Coalition. The discussion was tabled and no action was taken by the court.
