Keep Lottery Bucks Flowing for Rivers and Recreation 

Measure 76 will provide key dollars and support for our community resources and special places for everyone. We have a chance to vote yes for Measure 76 this November.

Measure 76 will provide key dollars and support for our community resources and special places for everyone. We have a chance to vote yes for Measure 76 this November. It is an important vote, as it is putting money into savings for our parks, for our water, for our kids, and for our natural areas and wildlife - all while creating jobs now.

Most of us live here because Central Oregon contains a unique mix of businesses, beautiful lands, healthy rivers, and great communities who share a passion for this quality of life. The 15 percent of lottery dollars from Measure 76 supports the quality of life we all love. Just in the last 2 years, lottery dollars have provided over 10 million dollars right here, for restoring our local rivers, creating jobs for water conservation and projects for our irrigation districts, and providing outdoor education programs for our region's youth.

We must continue to prioritize these local opportunities that sustain our quality of life and support our region's economy. Measure 76 provides money for park infrastructure, habitat for our fish and flowing water for our boats, and watershed education for our kids. These dollars create jobs here, support a diversity of workers who are caring for our future lands and rivers, and provide a boost to our economy, which will circulate far and wide within our businesses. Join me in celebrating where we live and investing for our future - vote yes on Measure 76.
