2022 General Endorsements

OLCV endorses candidates who are dedicated to protecting all the things we love about Oregon. An OLCV-endorsed candidate will fight to protect Oregon's air and water, preserve our public lands, find solutions to the climate crisis, and create a brighter future for all of Oregon's people. Check out our list of endorsements for the 2022 General Election below!

OLCV Endorses Tina Kotek for Oregon Governor

Former Speaker of the Oregon House Tina Kotek is exactly the leader we need now to protect our clean air and water, and to address the climate crisis with the level of urgency necessary. We don’t have time for on-the-job-learning, and Tina is ready to lead on day one. She’s a climate champion driven by core values of justice, opportunity for all, and a better future for our kids. She’s an advocate at heart and a leader who brings people together to solve our toughest problems. Tina has been tested, and she’s delivered. 

OLCV Endorses Andrea Salinas for Congress

From when she served as an OLCV board member to her current work as an environmental and climate champion in the Oregon House, Andrea Salinas is always driven by her values, her work ethic, and her foundational belief that change is possible if we work for it. Her strong values paired with her experience fighting for everyday people, our communities, and our climate, make her exactly who we need representing all of us in Congress.

      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
