Letter to the Editor
Why you should
support jail bond
I have lived in Clatsop
County since 1971. During
that period, I was employed
as an Oregon State peace offi-
cer with the University of Or-
egon assigned to Job Corps, a
member of the Astoria Police
Department and a part-time
Working in this field of law
enforcement, I had occa-
sion to become involved in
the workings of the Clatsop
I am familiar with many of
the problems of the working
conditions that staff have had
to contend with. The cramped
space staff must work in, the
lack of living space prisoners
have to share and the ongoing
conditions that sometimes
cause safety concerns for both
staff and those incarcerated.
We have a great opportu-
nity to move the jail from
its confined area to a facil-
ity presently known as the
former North Coast Youth
Correctional Facility, locat-
ed just a few blocks from the
Sheriff’s Office. I have visited
these buildings many times
while serving on the Warren-
ton-Hammond School Board,
attending work sessions and
graduation ceremonies of the
youth who completed their
certificate of learning. The
buildings have great poten-
tial to hold and help and treat
Sheriff Tom Bergin has my
strong support. He’s a strong
proponent of remodeling the
youth facility for our jail and
has led the movement to lead
presentations to promote
the bond throughout Clatsop
County. I ask our citizens to
look at all accessible informa-
tion and attend discussions
that may help inform.
