The 101 on Measure 101
The Yes on Measure 101 campaign is working hard to provide good information to Oregon voters before the January 23rd special election. If you haven’t had the chance to read up on it yet, details of the measure are available online here including arguments for and against the measure (click “measures” and select “measure 101).

VG endorsed the Yes on 101 campaign last month. You can read more about why this measure matters to Virginia Garcia patients in these Letters to the Editor, submitted by
VG employees, and published in the last few weeks:

Dr. Lyn Jacobs (The Hillsboro Tribune)
Jon Tardiff, PA-C (Oregonian)

Virginia Garcia joins close to 150 organizations and businesses who are asking voters to Vote Yes on Measure 101. As you gather with friends and families this holiday weekend you may have the opportunity to discuss the measure. Here are a few of the common questions that people are asking, or you can click here to read a full list of Q&A.
