The "Truth in Site" group has gained attention in the last week with their first meeting, but residents like Bruce Cummings want it known the site selection process has been a long one and they embrace the chosen location.

 

"I just find the position, as they say  they are on the wrong side of history.  I find myself when I read one of their points thinking about how many meetings I've attended -- and it shows the due diligence and transparency OSU Cascades has gone through."

 

Cummings feels the "not in my backyard" attitude is at work here. He thinks the addition of a four year unviersity will be an asset to our community -- especially economically.

 

Mike Hollern has been on several committees during the selection site process .. and feels their concerns have been addressed.

 

"I think it would be unfortunate to delay or stall this expansion.  This has been very well researched decision.  A lot of effort and study went into where it shoudl be.  I had the good fortune of serving on several committees and I'm totally convinced that this is the best available solution and I hope it mvoes forward rapidly as possible."

 

Hollern is concerned the efforts of a small group could derail all the work the community has done to expand the OSU campus here.
