Earl Blumenauer's Spotty Memory

 2014_11_Michael_Meo.jpg   Recently Michael Meo - our Pacific Green Party candidate for Congressional District 3 - attended a Willamette Week editor's meeting with CD 3 candidates including incumbent Earl Blumenauer.  For some strange reason the Congressman couldn't recall his votes on aid for attacks against Syria or in support of the state of Israel, and Michael has written a letter to help the editors and Congressman Blumenauer recall his votes.

Jason_Levin_OPB.JPG   Pacific Green Party gubernatorial candidate Jason Levin (holding mic in the photo) got online air-time when he strolled into Pamplin Media Group on Monday morning and (quite rightly) demanded to be a part of the scheduled debate between the two corporate party candidates Gov.

 noonmeasure90.png   The Koch brothers, through their firm Koch Industries, are providing significant funding to a major supporter of Measure 90, the top two primary proposal.  "The Koch brothers join a parade of corporations, corporate executives, and big-time financiers in bankrolling Measure 90," said Seth Woolley of the Pacific Green Party.  "They correctly perceive Measure 90 as a way for the corporations to control Oregon."

Green Candidate calls for non-intervention in Syria

Christina_Lugo.jpg    Christina Lugo, the Pacific Green Party candidate for US Senate, responding to proposals from both congress and the White House for bombing ISIS in Syria, has called for non-intervention, saying that retaliation for the beheading of journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff would serve the interests of ISIS, rather than those of the American people.  

"As hideous as the crimes were, and as deeply as they have affected me personally and emotionally, I believe that it does not serve the interests of peace and it will not do justice to their deaths to take steps towards war with Syria," Lugo said.  Full release available under the fold.

Oregonian excludes Green candidate for Governor

Exclusion.jpg  

The Oregonian is seeking questions to ask only 2 gubernatorial candidates. It is also reporting on planned debates between only two candidates for governor and only two for U.S. Senator.

This would be a good time to comment on this articles, call the reporters who wrote them, call editors at the Oregonian and WRITE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Democracy only works when voters are fully informed.

There is no reason to discriminate against grassroots, independent candidates.  There is no reason to favor candidates who belong to certain political parties or who accept campaign "contributions" from corporations.  The media should not censor or act as a gatekeeper for the electoral process. Voters should be informed about all candidates and make up their own minds. Please call, comment, write and agitate!
