Election 2014 Endorsement Cheat Sheet 

sourceelectionendorsements.jpg

BEND CITY COUNCILOR 5: NATHAN BODDIE

We are looking for councilors who we believe will better represent community values when they make decisions.

BEND CITY COUNCILOR 6: LISA SEALES

Overall we believe that Seales will fill the leadership and moderator gap that departing Jodie Barram leaves.

CITY COUNCILOR 7: BARB CAMPBELL

City council needs more direct leadership—and leadership that actively draws in residents' viewpoints.

US SENATE: JEFF MERKLEY

We are endorsing the incumbent, but not with a great deal of enthusiasm.

US CONGRESS: AELEA CHRISTOFFERSON

As Central Oregon's demographics change, so should its representative.

GOVERNOR: JOHN KITZHABER

He is the better choice for Oregon, but more accountable should color Kitzhaber's next term.

OREGON HOUSE DISTRICT 54: KNUTE BUEHLER

For a region as diverse as this one, we are looking for a coalition builder.

COUNTY COMMISSIONER: JODIE BARRAM

Her endorsements and varied lists of contributors speak volumes to the community reach that Barram has developed—and, we believe, will bring to county commission.

Ballot Measures

MEASURE 86: YES

MEASURE 87: YES

MEASURE 88: YES

Reducing the number of unlicensed drivers on the road is a clear benefit for everyone.

MEASURE 89: YES

MEASURE 90: NO

Paradoxically this would limit the number of voices in the political process, and decrease opportunities for independent and underdog candidates.

MEASURE 91: YES

Yes, this plan to legalize marijuana is imperfect and perhaps a bit premature, but it is smart in that it will generate gobs of tax money for law enforcement and education.

MEASURE 92: YES

More information leads to smarter choices.
