The State Land Board (Governor, Treasurer, and Secretary of State) needs to hear from us that Oregonians do not want the Elliott to be privatized. The Department of State Lands (DSL) released the agenda for this meeting, stating that unless the State Land Board tells the DSL to not sell the Elliott, it will be officially sold. Key talking points:
-The Elliott needs to remain in public ownership.
-The DSL is disregarding the Land Board's decision in December to look into other options.
-There are currently groups formulating alternative options for the Elliott and these should not be disregarded.
-The common school fund needs to be decoupled from the revenue of the Elliott, but not at the cost of losing our public lands
If they don't take action this coming Tuesday 14 Feb then a sale will (unfortunately) go through. There is a massive rally planned in Salem on Tuesday click for details.
Wear green in support of the Elliott!
