Contact Your Legislator | Oregon Outdoor Council
Thanks for another resource.
Like sending letters to SantaClaus! "Prozacsky" has his mind made up.. Only remedy is to vote him out or start a recall!!
As president of the Oregon Outdoor Council...we agree, but like chess, victory doesn't come without moving several pieces into position.
I'd donate and collect signatures on a recall petition!
I would donate and gather as well.
Here is a chess play for you. Start a recall petition. Rook threatens Queen!
It's ironic, isn't it? Public Policy Polling does a poll here, and in Colorado, that shows "people want background checks"
Colorado and Oregon are fairly similar (One major city, few medium sized cities, lots of smaller towns. Varied geography, etc)
Three senators lost their job in Colorado for pushing thru their bills... three senators on this committee who are for the Oregon bill....
what, oh what could the future hold!?!?
Edit: And now the Colorado senate is awash in bills attempting to repeal the bills they "passed" last year.
THIS is a parallel that should go in an email!
I'll see if I can find a link to the actual poll sometime, but here is PPP's "Reflecting on the Colorado recalls" from Sep. 11, 2013.
Here you go. Dan Lucas at Oregon Catalyst has already done the work for you
Maybe I WILL have time to send one more email tomorrow!
Too strong, or not strong enough? I put "78% of Oregonians agree with SB 1551" in the subject line to give it a better chance of being read.
I will send the same to Roblan and Dembrow. I think Roblan may be the most receptive to this and susceptible to consequences. I could be wrong as I don't know a whole lot about him or his district.
We would need someone from Floyd's district to file a recall petition. Anyone here live in South Eugene to North Roseburg?
Here are the directions:
Send messages to everyone you know who may live in his district.
I don't know if you actually need to submit (when is he up for re-election?). Just make them sweat.
But a constant, steady stream of different individuals showing up and inquiring at the front desk about how, what forms, etc. Eventually it will make the rounds of the water cooler....
But nothing like a recall effort to get the message out for free. The media love this kind of thing and would be all over it!! People who vote and would not normally know about the Senator would hear about the recall and wonder if he deserved another term in office.
That is true, some who might otherwise listen may not when they realize that elections are coming up. At any rate, we cannot afford to do nothing. Something must be done. I think the last thing to say when calling his office or either of the other two who supported the bill in the work session is to ask what the number is for information on recalls or something like that. Enough people saying that will grab attention right where it counts.
Send the pdf or a link to the pdf of the recall rules that ocarolan posted above when you send an email.
In a Poll (I conducted myself) the vast majority of Oregonians want Prozanski out of office.
How many signatures would it take?
How many attend our gun shows each year for a starting place?
Would all signatures have to be from his district, his actions affect us Statewide.
I know the guys in Colorado met with an attorney to get things rolling, maybe Kevin could advise on this?
If these representatives are not serving us then it is time for a recall. I know we got more than a few.
