Legislative Redistricting Hearing
In the year following each census, legistlative district boundaries are redrawn. After the last census, the boundaries in Oregon were redrawn in a way that favors majority partisan interests and residents of urban areas over rural areas, through a process known as gerrymandering. This year, the district boundaries will be redrawn again, and it’s important to make sure they are drawn fairly to enable rural communities to elect representatives who truly represent their local interests. Please attend this hearing and make your voice heard.

Meet Art Robinson
Art Robinson is challenging 12-term Congressman, Peter DeFazio. While DeFazio is part of the problem (and has been for a long time), Art wants to be part of the solution. Please come show your support and hear him discuss what’s wrong with our nation, and how he plans to fix it.

“Our country is on the wrong road. The U.S. Congress has wrecked our economy with profligate overspending, crushing taxation, and runaway government regulation. Moreover, it has reached into our personal lives in many unacceptable ways. We can fix these problems! We need not continue to endure this situation.” – Art Robinson
