"DEMOCRACY IS A CHOICE"

"Indifference is a choice. Cynicism is a choice. “Just doing my job” is a choice.

"Democracy is a choice.

"Defending democracy is a duty that appears unbidden when Americans least expect it. Every generation before ours has discharged that duty honorably. Ours cannot be the one to falter."
-- Robert Hubbell, Today's Edition, April 2, 2024

FACTS TO COUNTER GOP MISINFORMATION

PROTECTING THE SYSTEM OF JUSTICE
"“The Nation is witnessing the determined delegitimization of both its Federal and State judiciaries and the systematic dismantling of its system of justice and Rule of Law by a single man — the former President of the United States,” retired judge J. Michael Luttig said on X concerning Trump’s threats and insults directed at the courts. “Ultimately, however, it is the responsibility of the entire nation to protect its courts and judges, its Constitution, its Rule of Law, and America’s Democracy from vicious attack, threat, undermine, and deliberate delegitimization at the hands of anyone so determined.” In other words, judges must clamp down on unacceptable conduct, and it is the voters’ responsibility to not to hand him a get-out-of-jail-free card by electing him to office."
-- Jennifer Rubin, 
The Washington Post, April 3, 2024

SENATOR MERKLEY CLATSOP COUNTY TOWN HALL
Saturday, April 6 at 2:30 pm
Patriot Hall - Gym, first floor
Clatsop Community College
1651 Lexington Avenue, Astoria 

This is Senator Jeff Merkley's 545th town hall since he was first elected to the Senate. Senator Merkley says, "I invite all Clatsop County community members to come and discuss ideas to strengthen our state and our nation. I hope to see you there!"  

TOWN HALL WITH CLATSOP COUNTY'S STATE LEGISLATORS
State Senator Suzanne Weber and State Representative Cyrus Javadi
INCO ENDORSES SCHELLER FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER
"There is no one better suited for the commissioner position than Tessa Scheller.

"Tessa started life in service to our country as an U.S. Army medic; in the past 40 years Tessa has worked to serve folks in Clatsop County as a nurse anesthetist and on various boards and committees. There is not an issue Tessa hasn’t delved into and worked on diligently for our community — from public health, to education, to land use planning and housing."
-- Laura Allen, Seaside, excerpt from 
The Astorian, March 26, 2024

INCO ENDORSES LOGAN LAITY FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
LOGAN LAITY FOR OREGON HOUSE DISTRICT 32 
An enthusiastic community volunteer, Chair of the Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency, and resourceful entrepreneur, Logan Laity is a committed progressive Democrat. He's running to represent us in the Oregon legislature against incumbent MAGA follower Cyrus Javadi, who proposed legislation to ban abortion in Oregon.

In his March 28 fundraising email Javadi said, 
"Friend, it has been an honor being your representative so far, and I want to continue doing my part to make a difference on the coast. With the HCP threatening our way of life and liberal extremists restricting our rights, there’s still work to be done." 

Our work is to defeat Javadi and elect Logan Laity.

Logan needs grassroots donors, so please support Logan against Javadi's well-funded campaign by donating now. Your donation will allow Logan to meet more voters, publicize his campaign positions, and campaign more effectively. Learn more about Logan here.
