Oregon elections

There are two articles in the Oregonian newspaper from 10/5/12 that focus on issues in our state. The first one reported on the state Supreme Court ruling concerning campaign finance limits. In Oregon there is no dollar limitations on what a candidate can spend. The article also brought the issue into the race for Secretary of State between Kate Brown and Knute Buehler. The second article I found this morning was a guest editorial that showed no relationship between tax rates and in particular capital gains rates and the Oregon economy nor people leaving the state because of capital gains. You can find the articles by going to: www.oregonlive.com . Also, don't forget about our candidate running for state offices. Antone Minthorn is running for the state senate from our senate district and Heidi Van Schoenhoven is the Democratic candidate from our legislative district.
