Oregon needs a New Vision


By Brian Setzler, MBA, CPA.

The old vision, the one this country was founded on, doesn’t work. The human race is having a lethal impact upon the world. Lakes are dying, seas are dying, forests are dying, the land itself is dying – for reasons directly traceable to our activities. As many as a hundred and forty species are vanishing every day—for reasons directly traceable to our activities.

The old vision, grow.

Green Party Election Results 2014 Summary

"We thank and congratulate all our candidates for running this year and helping the Green Party grow," said Starlene Rankin, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States. Click here to read the full Green Party 2014 election result press release.

Wyden pushes water, logging bills


Read the article in Eugene Register Guard about Senator Merkley's gift to the timber industry. In the 1980's it's agreed by most forest biologists not funded by the logging industry, that there was mass over-cutting of the forests in the Pacific Northwest. This O&C clear cutting bill is a gift to the timber industry at the cost of the people, clean water, air, biodiversity and long term economic health.

Measure 90 Fails while 91 Succeeds

First Green Judge Elected

          The Pacific Green Party of Oregon, long at the forefront of social change, is celebrating the beginning of the end of cannabis Prohibition, as well as the resounding rejection of the billionaire-backed top two ballot measure.  Greens are also celebrating the re-election of multi-term Corvallis City Councilor Mike Beilstein and the first election of a Green judge in the history of the state (we think).

            Referring to the defeat of Measure 90 and the passage of Measure 91, party spokesperson Blair Bobier said “more Oregonians agree with the policies and philosophy of the Green Party than any other party.  And now that top two has been rejected overwhelmingly for the second time, despite the millions of dollars behind it, we need to consider real changes to the election system, such as Instant Runoff Voting and public campaign financing.” 

Bobier added that “the Pacific Green Party will file a ballot initiative for Instant Runoff Voting for the 2016 election and I wouldn’t be surprised to see IRV legislation introduced in the upcoming session of the Oregon legislature.”

            One issue where the Greens stand out is opposition to war—in particular the undeclared, endless, illegal war being continually waged by both of the establishment parties.  U.S. Senate candidate Christina Lugo, who was, essentially, banned by organizations from debates and shunned or censored by the corporate media, took a markedly different position on the war than did either of her establishment party opponents.  Lugo said “Oregonians embrace peace and diplomacy. It is clear that we want a new direction toward peace and environmental restoration and away from violence and the politics of fear."

            In Benton County, Circuit Court Judge Matt Donohue was elected to his first full term as a Circuit Court Judge.  Judge Donohue took the bench during his previous term as an appointee of the governor.  This race, like all other judicial elections in the state, was non-partisan.  In Corvallis, multi-term Pacific Green Party city councilor Mike Beilstein was easily re-elected.
