Former Jackson Co. Commissioner weighs in on Breidenthal investigations

cw smithMedford, Ore. — Former Jackson County Commissioner C.W. Smith is weighing in on the ongoing investigations in to commissioner Doug Breidenthal following our exclusive interview that aired last week.

While Smith says it’s commendable that the commissioner wants to see the investigations through, he has questions about the use of a debit card to access funds from the AOC campaign account, and says suggestions that the auditor was instructed to file the complaint by County Administrator Danny Jordan is “a stretch”.

“There’s never an incidence where an auditor is ordered to do anything, they don’t do that,” C.W. Smith says, “to imply that somehow there’s this great conspiracy is not true.”

Smith adds he will be happy when the investigations are complete.
