Local conservative activist Tom Cookman who regularly appears on KINS Community Comment has decided to attack 3rd district supervisor Mark Lovelace for not calling him back. Cookman also seems to blame Mark Lovelace for Pacific Lumber cutting beyond the rate of growth and going out of business. I’m not sure why Cookman blames Lovelace instead of Charles Hurwitz?
Play the audio of Cookman’s latest community comment and tell me where I’ve gone wrong interpreting this. Was it not Hurwitz that stole the retirement funds of Pacific Lumber? Wasn’t it Hurwitz that turned the entire company into nothing but junk bonds? Didn’t they cut faster than the rate of growth just to pay the interest on the bonds?
If Mark Lovelace hasn’t returned the calls of Tom Cookman, that is a legitimate gripe. To blame Lovelace on the collapse of Pacific Lumber seems to be grasping at straws. I’m sure someone will set me straight on this.
