Heard suggestions that our initiative petitions are dead?
The OR Secretary of State (SOS), Shemia Fagan, incorrectly declared that our initiatives ror November 2022 do not meet requirements regarding the inclusion of the full text of OR law which would be affected in the initiatives themselves. This has now indeed killed our initiatives for 2022. But we will continue our efforts to get Big Special Money Interests Out of Our Oregon Elections.
After SOS Fagan (D) erroneously declared that each of our petitions was defective because it did not contain all the current laws text which is being changed, we filed a writ with the OR Supreme Court to speed up the review process. But the Supreme Court said No, that we should just make the changes being demanded by the Secretary of State. We then petitioned them again, noting that refiling would not leave any time to gather signatures, due to Oregon's absurd system that requires jumping through procedural hoops for about 4 months before signatures can be obtained. Again the answer was NO.
So we will file new petition(s) soon and work to get them qualified for the November 2024 ballot. Whatever we file will still be based on our principles: No loopholes. No special interest money in the election process. Transparency as to who is giving what to who.
We need to now build a base of signature gatherers for this new effort. We also need to know who might help contribute funds for this new effort. So if you can do either, please sign up as a supporter of the initiatives we have already filed for the 2022 ballot below. You will be added to our growing list of supporters, funders and collectors of signatures.
