Jason Levin seeks PGP nomination for Governor

2014-07-15_15.45.35.jpg   Jason Levin, a Pacific Green Party member from Portland Oregon, has expressed interest in running for Oregon Governor in the November 2014 general election as the Green Party candidate.  He has submitted a Statement of Candidacy which is available for review here, and he has a facebook page. To summarize from his statement, Mr. Levin is a former public school teacher holding two master's degrees, in technology education and electronic communications, from San Francisco State University.  The most important issue to him is the passage of IP53 - the "Legalization of Marijuana" initiative.  He owns a small business which sells cannabis-infused butters and oils to OMMP patients and dispensaries.  He has not previously run for office.
