It is unfortunate that Mr. Nelson of the Upper Clearwater Farmers Institute thinks I am adding fuel to the fire.

The purpose of the survey is to get full representation from Upper Clearwater, which is my understanding what both groups wanted.

Both groups (UCFI and the other side as they are known) attended the TNRD board meeting on Jan. 21, 2016 as delegations and both representatives agreed to a survey. That is the democratic process.
