When they have paid their debt to society and are once again free citizens, yes, of course. I never agreed with the law that said that convicted felons should forfeit their right to vote forever. Once you are free, you should be allowed to vote.

If you are a felon, you lost that right. If you are dumb enough to commit a felony, you are too dumb to vote.

Inmates are supposed to lose most all of their rights.

They gave up the right when they were convicted of criminal acts and were imprisioned.

I feel they lost their voting privilege when they became incarcerated.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
