The first week of fall is behind us. It was a great week, and not just because we finally got to break out our sweaters and apple cider! The Yes on 97 campaign hit the streets and the phones, and with the help of our volunteers and community partners we talked to more than 7,400 voters about holding big corporations accountable here in Oregon.
With messages from both campaigns hitting the airwaves this week, we know that Oregon voters are going to be paying more attention to Measure 97 than ever before. Not only will Oregonians be hearing our messages about why we need to hold large and out-of-state corporations accountable, but they’ll also be getting misleading messages from the corporate-backed opposition — messages intended to trick voters into maintaining the status quo. That’s why we’re asking for your help, talking to voters at their doorsteps and on the phone.
People agree that Measure 97 is the best way to address the biggest problems facing Oregon — and they’re even more supportive and excited about Measure 97 once they’ve talked with fellow community members about it.
As we approach Election Day, it will become even more critical for us to have meaningful conversations with Oregonians, and we can’t do it without your help.
