The recent Letter by Susan McCreary headed “Supports Tummarello” comes extremely close to the rule that it shouldn’t be justified with a response.
Because I can’t resist breaking this rule, as a compromise I’ll keep this short. I never dreamed that business decisions by Huls Dairy would become fodder for the Ravalli Commissioner campaign.
It is clear that Ms. McCreary knows nothing about Huls Dairy or the dairy industry, hence the faulty “questions” posed in the letter. If anyone, including Ms. McCreary, cares about or wants to know why we have decided to exit the dairy industry after more than 100 years, I would be happy to fill them in, but not here.
The true information regarding this has no relevance to the race except to attempt to use wrong information to call into question Dan Huls’ integrity. More than a century, as our family has participated in and helped lead the dairy industry, we have endeavored to follow the rules with honesty and integrity. I can assure readers that hasn’t changed.
It is interesting that this supporter of Mr. Tummarello that wishes to champion personal property rights, has no problem sticking her nose into other people’s business.
— Tim Huls, President, Huls Dairy Inc. Corvallis
