Mr Kroger said that he (apparently in his official capacity) is a leader in the fight against allowing an LNG plant on the Columbia--and he said later that his primary official role on environmental matters is to enforce the law. I agree that his official role should be to enforce the law. My question is: why is it appropriate for him to lead the fight against granting a permit to any applicant who is following established procedures to obtain a permit to do something in accordance with the law? Isn't he using his office to promote his personal views into the legitimate functioning of the DEQ and/or the state legislature?
