    Hello,

    we are tentatively probing the idea of recalling State Sen. Alan Bates, looking to see if there is anyone in Medford or surrounding area who is interested in being a chief petitioner. We won't kick this off several months (probably until after the other recalls finish or close to) but if you know anyone or are in the area please contact me ASAP. Bates won last election by 51% but the democrats have only a marginal edge. Bates was a sponsor of SB941 as well.

    Thanks

    JBR

    Did you move down there? I was not sure if you were visiting or moved.

    @johnbrownraider has been helping with the Riley recall so he has the experience of our efforts to help with another recall.

    That might be good. Instead of trying all at once, a constant trickle of recalls thru to next summer :)

    The "heavy hitters" in my district said timing it so the ballots go out in late August-early September would work the best because it's a non-presidential election cycle and a lot of folks will be out of town on vacation (low turn out), provided enough signatures are gathered.

    Thank goodness we don't have a target in Douglas County but would love to help. Would you please post if you get this off the ground and need contributions?

    I don't believe there is anyone around White City to recall or I would help.

    once and if we get this thing going there will be a lot of help needed both on site and through a social media campaign

    summer is a bad time for me to spearhead anything outside of work but I can most definitely support and help work on it, I'm in Eagle Point
