Petition Drives for the 2024 ballot
Meaningful Campaign Finance Reform rests on a three-legged stool
- 1) Disclosure of large donors in Independent Expenditures (paid political ads)
- 2) Meaningful limits of funds received and disbursed for political campaigns - many technicalities in this
- 3) Public Matching Funds for elections
Measure 107 passed with 82% voter approval in 2022; amending the Oregon Constitution to allow for campaign finance limits. The legislature did not do anything and later the Secretary of State, a Democrat supported by Labor, threw out the petition drive to implement campaign finance reform in 2022.
New Districts were approved in 2022, in less than ideal manners. This is why we need an Independent Redistricting Commission. Additional links:

This exciting initiative would bring large amounts of funding to rural communities, by putting the money in people's hands. Corporations are not paying their share; so we are going to demand a rebate from Oregon sales of the largest corporations be brought back to the state, to support infrastructure and vibrant local economies.
