Letter to the Editor:

During the recent Oneida County Board elections, candidate Dennis Schoeneck of District 7, candidate Robb Jensen of District 11, candidate Lance Krolczyk of District 18 and candidate Ken Dirks of District 20 allegedly distributed campaign materials telling of a “Dam Plan” formulated at the county level by some supervisors.
