2012 Primary Election
From long time heroes like Senator Jackie Dingfelder to newcomers like Jessica Vega Pederson, OLCV is excited to endorse dozens of candidates across the state.
Unfortunately, not all of OLCV's endorsed candidates have an easy path to victory.
There are two rising stars who could be the next champions for Oregon's environment, but face difficult primary challenges: Jeff Reardon in House District 48 (SE Portland/Happy Valley) and Ben Unger in House District 29 (Hillsboro/Forest Grove).
OLCV will be working from now until Election Day (May 15) to help Jeff and Ben win their tough primary races.
As an outdoors enthusiast, Jeff knows that our forests must be managed sustainably to protect long-term financial benefits, wildlife habitat, and recreational uses. Jeff will work hard to attract responsible employers to his district who will not jeopardize public health or sacrifice areas like Johnson Creek, Mt. Scott, or our resource-rich forests to make a fast buck. Jeff will put Oregon families first.
Ben Unger’s commitment to conservation, his dedication to protecting Oregon’s farms and our land, and his emphasis on building a strong local economy based on the area’s agricultural heritage demonstrates that he is the best choice to represent the people of House District 29. HD 29 covers Forest Grove, Cornelius, and parts of Hillsboro and Washington County.
We know Ben and Jeff are the right choices when it comes to protecting Oregon's natural legacy, but we have a lot of work to do to get these two great candidates across the finish line.
- Pledge to sign up for at least one volunteer shift between now and Election Day.
- Make a gift to OLCV PAC now to ensure we have the resources to help pro-conservation candidates win in 2012.
