Douglas' 2050 Plan appointee steps down
Placeholder Image

After careful consideration and discussion, 1st District 2050 Plan Citizens' Committee member Sandy Morehouse has agreed to step aside as the district representative on that advisory committee.  

Several days ago, he graciously agreed to my earlier request to serve but we quickly learned he would be the target of several unhappy citizens. Very shortly thereafter, his appointment became the main topic of conversation and contention rather than the plan itself. 

To avoid distractions during the coming discussions, I asked Sandy to step aside and he agreed. It is very unfortunate that this move became necessary but as the crescendo continued to rise, a change because necessary. I appreciate Sandy Morehouse's willingness to serve, his involvement in the community and I look forward to working with him again in the near future.
