Republican Political Advertising on our County’s Website?

UPDATE! May 23, 2019

Received today from Commissioner Morgan:

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  None of us knew this was on our website and could not determine who or when it was added.  The Board discussed and agreed it should be removed and it has been.

Lily Morgan, Commissioner
Board of County Commissioners
Josephine County


While looking for something else on the Josephine County website, I found this link on the County Commissioner’s page in the left bar: “A lifeline for Oregon’s Rural Forested Communities” . Click it. You will find a video of Greg Walden taking credit for the Secure Rural Schools funding.


Does this belong on a taxpayer funded website? It provides no information about the bill that provided the funding, which is the 2018 spending bill P.L. 115-141. Connected to it is House bill H.R.1625 – Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 – which Walden did NOT co-sponsor.

Here is also some information from the Forest Service Website: https://www.fs.usda.gov/pts

Do you object to this blatant politicking on your taxpayer funded County government website? Call and write the Commissioners. Ask them to remove that link!
