For Rosenkotter, Lyshall, and Zee, after you've coordinated with the State, after you've informed the PSP, after you've gotten letters from the tribes, then you invite Jarman and Hughes around for a little "discussion." You present your scheme as a fait accompli ... a done deal ... just sign on the bottom line.
Then, you circle back with Jamie before going before the Council on July 15 and voila, the suckers will never know what hit them. It's just like taking candy from a baby ... or in this case, that might be better put as "taking oversight and millions from the County."
Only it didn't work this time. But the entire Conservation District ploy is an example of how it usually does work around here. By the time "they" reveal their plans to normal folks, the fix is already in. They've been maneuvering for weeks, if not months. They're a dozen steps ahead of everyone else.
If you're in a poker game, and you don't know who the patsy is, you're the patsy. We've been the patsy for a long, long time.

Barbara Rosenkotter, Bruce Gregory, and I would like to meet with you to discuss returning the lead entity
program to the Conservation District. I understand that Jamie has this on the agenda for the 15th and I wanted
to give you an opportunity to hear the details ahead of time, and to address any questions you might have.
The best times for us are tomorrow afternoon, anytime between 2:30 and 5:30, or next Tuesday between 4:00
and 5:30. Do either of those times work for you?
Look forward to talking with you,

FYI, I left a message last night for Jamie asking about the meeting. I suspected that we may only get through an overview of the various programs vs any decision making, which is probably for the best right now. Please see his response below.

The original plan was to discuss the possible move of Salmon Recovery to the Cons. District. However, it is clear that a more basic discussion needs to had about the LIO, MRC, and SR. Roles and responsibilities; where funding comes from; and oversight. As we have discussed, the County doesn’t oversee Salmon Recovery, it just acts as the fiscal agent whereas that role changes with the LIO.
There is a misconception that if SR stays in the County that we will have oversight.
I hope this helps
