Join us online to meet the people running for office who will be representing YOU! You have a voice and have the choice to make an informed decision when you vote. At this virtual forum, you will get to know the candidates, learn what issues are important to them, and have the ability to ask your questions, and share your thoughts.
The event is free and open to the public. The candidates will take 5 to 8 minutes to summarize issues of importance to them and then the audience will ask questions of particular candidates. Grange member and community volunteer, Lee Mercer will be the moderator for the event.
The following Candidates have been invited:
State Senate District 9:
State House of Representatives District 18:
Marion County Commissioner:
Ashley Carter Cottingham
Together we can shape the future of Oregon and that starts with taking action in our community, sharing our voice, and making informed votes!
This virtual forum will be in English, but the Grange is looking into having translators at future in-person forums to promote inclusion and accessibility for all.
The Grange at all levels is strictly non-partisan and does not endorse candidates for public office nor contribute to their campaigns. The primary objective of the Grange is to represent the views of rural residents and the agricultural community. These issues include transportation, farm programs, rural economic development, education, health and safety concerns, and many others.
