Here’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:
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2016 15:57:19 -0800 Subject: Licensure exemption workgroup From: Robert Plamondon <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com 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
Hill’s reply to me, which I reproduce in full:
From: Charles J. Hill <Charles.J.Hill@state.or.us> Date: Wed, Feb 10, 2016 at 2:03 PM Subject: RE: Licensure exemption workgroup To: Robert Plamondon <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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.
