2018 General Election Endorsements

We've made endorsements in State Senate & House District races, as well as for Governor and local County, Metro, and City races and ballot measures. Check out our full list of endorsements below.

OLCV ENDORSES:

Governor Kate Brown

OLCV applauds Brown’s deep understanding of environmental issues and her proven record of action, especially in the face of the Trump administration’s widespread attacks on the environment.

Statewide Ballot Measures

  • Support Affordable Housing 
    Vote YES on Measure 102 

  • Oppose the Expanded Supermajority Requirement
    Vote NO on Measure 104
    Currently, only bills that propose a raise in taxes must be approved by a three-fifths legislative majority (aka a supermajority). If Measure 104 passes, a supermajority vote would be required for a wider range of bills, including environmental bills that make polluters pay -- such as the Clean Energy Jobs bill -- making them harder to pass.

  • Stand with Immigrants and Refugees
    Vote NO on Measure 105

    If passed, Measure 105 would repeal an Oregon law that protects immigrants and refugees from federal immigration laws enforcing unjust treatment and racial profiling. For more on why we oppose Measure 105, check out this op-ed opposing anti-immigrant ballot measures, by our own Executive Director, Doug Moore, and the former Executive Director of the Oregon Sierra Club, Erica Stock.

The Endorsement Process

Any candidate seeking an OLCV endorsement must fill out a comprehensive questionnaire. Following review of the questionnaire, we conduct face-to-face interviews with each candidate. All endorsement recommendations are reviewed and finalized by the OLCV PAC Board of Directors. Learn more
