|What an incredible evening for Oregon Democrats!
When we began this campaign, we said we had three big jobs to do — and I’m proud to say we accomplished each one of them.
We re-elected Governor Kate Brown, thanks to an amazing statewide outreach effort.
We re-elected our great Oregon Democratic Congressional Delegation and made a big noise in Oregon’s Second Congressional District, a noise that is still reverberating. I can’t say enough about Jamie McLeod-Skinner and her team — the campaign that they ran truly exemplified the spirit and heart of Oregonians in the district, and she earned the best result for an Oregon Democrat in CD-2 in at least 20 years.
And last but not least, we defended and expanded our Oregon Democratic majorities in both houses of the legislature in Salem.
Over the last two years I’ve had the privilege to travel across Oregon meeting with Democrats in all 36 of our counties. And one of the things I’ve said to them is that we want to send a message with this election.
We do not want to make ourselves great at the expense of anyone else. We want to have health care for all and public education for our children. We want humane immigration policies, strong unions, retirement plans for our seniors, and for women to have control over our own bodies.
Last night, Oregonians resoundingly said that we will not allow our state to cut reproductive health care, that we would not return to the days when racial profiling was legal, and that we will not hamstring our state and local governments just to protect corporations and the well off from paying their share of taxes.
This was a great night filled with great results, and it wouldn’t have been possible without your support. For that, we cannot thank you enough.
Now, as we look ahead toward the work to be done in 2019 and beyond to defend and uphold our Oregon Democratic values, I hope you’ll keep standing with us.
Support our work to elect more Oregon Democrats, and protect the Democratic values we hold dear. Donate today.
Be informed before you vote!
Name: CANDIDATES FORUM ~ Anne Basker Auditorium
Date: October 16, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM PDT
The Daily Courier in partnership with the Grants Pass & Josephine County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Candidate Forum on Tuesday October 16th, 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Anne Basker Auditorium. Candidate positions include:
• Josephine County Commissioner Candidates
• Sheriff Candidates
A panel will ask candidates questions prepared by the Daily Courier and the Chamber. The panel will also field some written questions from the audience to ask candidates.
Does it feel like all you read or hear on social media, local and national news, is bad news?
Do you feel like you are pushing an enormous boulder up an impossible hill?
There is a way to turn all that frustration and strength into “Power”. How? Join us for some local wine and appetizers, with like minded folks and have a grown up conversation about how we can keep the “Blue Wave” moving forward.
JCDCC needs your generosity and support. It takes dedicated volunteers to advocate for our local and state candidates and have a presence in local activities. It is nice to offer, cool water during canvasing, or a snack when phone banking.
“Thank you”, to our followers on “Facebook” and “Welcome” to those that have found us and are
“Liking” our page. If you are unable to attend the Fundraiser, but would like to donate, please see the link for “ActBlue”, to purchase tickets.
“Happy Memorial Day”! JCDCC has an entry in the 2018 Boatnik Parade and would love for you to join us, as we celebrate our Men & Women of the armed services and honor the sacrifices they have made for our country. We are proud to be involved in supporting the Grants Pass Active Club and all their tireless volunteer hours to help our kids in Josephine County and beyond. If you would like to walk with us, or ride in the truck, ( come early ) please be at the staging area, Saturday May 26, no later then 9:15am, located at C & D streets, between 4th and 5th. Your involvement in the parade, from start to finish is approximately 4- 4.5hrs. You can chose to end your involvement at anytime during the parade. We ask that you do not reference Trump in any way. This is about Veterans and our Community. We have signs available, if you come early. We are keeping with these themes:
∼We believe in Science
∼Health Care for All
∼Equal Rights for All
∼Global Warming and Climate Change,
∼Higher Education Standards
∼Infrastructure repair and maintenance
∼Advocating for our immigrant neighbors and citizens.
We are also, very proud of Jamie McLeod-Skinner and her win for CD2 and all of Oregon!! We extended an invitation for her to join us in the parade and she has graciously accepted!!! Lets show our support and help her win in November 2018!!!!!!
Please contact us https://josephinedemocrats.org/contact-us/ or call Sheri Morin @ 541-660-2995 for more info.
Josephine County Democratic Central Committee would like to send a
shout out to Jamie’s team… “CONGRATULATIONS” on a great “WIN”.
It was refreshing to see and hear honest debates and mutual
respect between the candidates. All candidates had great vision
for Oregon and it’s communities. We also want to thank all
candidates for participating in our CD 2 Candidates Forum.
We are looking forward to campaigning for Jamie, to defeat
Walden in November. We need all boots on the ground for
this election. It is going to be a challenge, however, we
are confident in the Democratic message and will advocate,
as we know Jamie will, for Clean Air & Water, Gun Safety,
Equal Rights for All, Health Care for All, and Ethics & Morals.
“CONGRATULATIONS “again for your “WIN”!!!!

The first work group for the clean-up will meet on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in the Allen Creek Shopping Center on Highway 199 near the paint store. Safety vests and other equipment will be distributed there.
Volunteers need to be at least 16 years old, bring their own gloves, water, and sturdy walking shoes.
