|Join people from across Oregon in Salem on Tuesday, June 11 to tell Governor Brown and the State Lands Board that they must do everything in their power to stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline for good?
On June 11, leaders from across Southern Oregon will be in a private meeting with Governor Brown to ask her to stand up against Jordan Cove LNG. While the meeting with the real Governor happens inside, we’re hosting a “People’s Meeting & Rally” outside of the Department of State Lands where you can speak out against the pipeline and get updates from the private meeting inside first.

Wyden has held 937 town halls statewide overall since promising Oregonians that he would hold at least one annual town hall in each of the state’s 36 counties.
“These upcoming town halls in Douglas, Coos, Curry and Josephine counties allow any Oregonian to ask me any question or share any idea,” said Wyden, who this year won a second straight MVP award from the Town Hall Project for holding the most town halls of any senator in 2018.
“Open-to-all community meetings represent the freedoms we treasure, thanks to the many Americans we honor this Memorial Day weekend for making the ultimate sacrifice,” Wyden said. “And throwing open the doors of government and listening to Oregonians everywhere is essential to finding solutions that work throughout our state.”
Ballots have been mailed. May elections are usually low turnout since they are primarily local non-partisan elections and ballot measures. This gives an opportunity for a small percentage of voters to elect someone who may not have the best intentions for the community.
Most races are uncontested. Here are the contested races and others of interest.
|Grants Pass School District #7|
|Brian DeLaGrange, Position #6||No comment. Read the voter pamphlet – what applicable experience do they have; what have they supported and opposed regarding school funding. For example, DeLaGrange has opposed a middle school levy and Penning has not placed an alternative on the ballot.|
|Joshua Shannon, Position #6|
|Garry L Penning|
|Three Rivers School District|
|Danny L. York, Zone 2||He is the incumbent. Recommendation from Kate Dwyer: “I am the IV school board rep for TRSD. Both Paul Kelly and Danny York have served with intelligence and respect. TRSD is on a good path, with clear board goals and increasing grad rates. I would like to continue to serve with both Paul and Danny. The challenger would bring disruption. Please vote for the board to continue in its current form.”|
|Judy Ahrens, Zone 2||Supports Constitution Party Education platform that all education should be private (no public schools). See Courier front page article of May 1st.|
|Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District|

|Jerry L. Lamb, Position #4|
|Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District|

|Gary L. Price, Position #3|
|Running Unopposed – Worthy of support|

Josephine County Democrats are providing an opportunity for the public to find out more about how government works through a series of speakers who will take the mystery out of the county courthouse, the statehouse, and what your Congressional representatives actually do.
The May 14th meeting will feature Arthur O’Hare, a member of the Josephine County Finance Department who will explain where the county’s money comes from and where it goes.
The public is welcome to attend, especially new voters or those who don’t always vote because they don’t feel informed. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with an opportunity to socialize and network before the meeting begins at 7 p.m. at 129 NW “E” Street in Grants Pass.
