Congressman's self-centered ideas bad for Klamath salmon

I was dismayed to read in Friday's Triplicate of Republican Congressman Tom McClintock's efforts to block the agreement to remove dams from the Klamath River.

The plan to remove these dams has the support of farmers, fishermen, tribes and conservation groups. It seems the only one against the plan is Congressman McClintock, so he is using his power to try to stop the dam removal.

There have been millions of dollars already spent on studies, reports, meetings, etc., and now he wants to stop a project that clearly has the support of the people.

Seems like one more member of the "Party of No" just can't bear to see things any other way but his own.

The salmon are in real trouble, Congressman. The removal of these dams will give the species a good chance to recover. Why don't you go back to your office in Washington, D.C., and let people in the Pacific Northwest deal with our own issues?
