I urge everyone whop cares about Oregon to vote FOR Measure 76. This tiny bit of funding (about 1% of the state General fund and Lattory budget) has done so much good - and there is so much more to do to protect our treasured rivers, streams, woods, wild places and parks. I remember when the voters left funding these values to the Legislature - parks decayed and were in danger of being closed to the public, many of our streams were murky with sediment from run-off, our salmon were endangered of being listed as endangered, and people in Washington County had to go all the way to the coast before they found a state park. All that has changed - why would we go back to those days?
I want to leave a heritage of clean water, jobs in habitat restoration and special places for future Oregonians - join me and vote "YES" for Measure 76.
