Communicating with the Psychology Board, or Trying To

Communication with the OBPE has not been establishedHere’s an email exchange between myself and Charles Hill, the Executive Director of the Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners and the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. I think it speaks for itself.

My email to Hill:

Mr. Hill,

If I were to submit a document, in advance of the meeting, for distribution to the members of the Licensure Exemption Workgroup, would it be distributed?

As you know, I suspect that communications sent to the OBPE are routinely withheld from the board members, and you refused to answer when I asked you about this directly. However, you promptly answered that, if I sent
material to the OBLPCT, it would be distributed.

Which rules are used with the Licensure Exemption Workgroup?

Robert

Dear Mr. Plamondon,

At this point in time, I am not willing to put any responses to your comments in writing because you have repeatedly twisted, ridiculed and misrepresented things I, or members of OBPE, have said in the past, then published or verbally stated your misinterpretations as fact.  This is misleading to the public and I do not wish to support it.

I will be more than happy to respond to your questions when I see evidence of accurate reporting on your part.

Sincerely,
Charles J. Hill
Executive Director
Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners, (503) 378-4154  x4
Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists, (503) 378-5499  x4

How am I expected to twist or misrepresent the answer to a yes-or-no question? Oh, well.
