Westbank deal based on false information

Dear Editor,

Why did the 1902 deeded access owned by the county not show up on the title work when Westbank was developed? Because there is no deeded access owned by the county in Westbank!

It was re-deeded back to the private landowner in 1959! That’s right, and it’s a matter of public record. Perhaps you have an explanation for this, Mr. Neiley?

Commissioners Walt Stowe and Larry McCown approved a settlement agreement which vacates property the county doesn’t even own.

There seems to be a Machiavellian characteristic to this litigation process which county attorney Don DeFord forced Westbank into.

In my opinion it’s about time for the judge to step in and stop this outrageous abuse of the legal system, and we hope he does before this settlement agreement becomes final, since it is predicated upon false information.

For those of you who have had the courage to stand up and fight for democracy and American justice, we thank you. The Westbank Alliance is growing strong – in number and in resources – and we urge you to continue calling 945-7443.
