    The way Val Hoyle explains her decision to step down as House President it sounds like she's doing Jason a favor by allowing him and the recall effort a graceful way to save face...?o_O but then goes on to say that she was never paying any attention to the recall. Yeah, right..!

    Way to go Jason and everyone that supported the recall effort.

    She has not quit her job. She will still serve in the House as the representative of House District 14. She will still continue to participate in the legislature, and vote on all legislation. She will just no longer have a leadership role.

    There has been talk about her running for Secretary of State ever since Kitzhaber's resignation. She was immediately pegged as being a likely candidate to replace Brown. Her plans to run for that office precede the debate over 941.

    Doesn't everyone realize that Hoyle is doing this in order to position herself to run for Governor down the road? That is the ultimate goal that she is aiming for here. She will have quite a resume to run on by then.

    If you don't like Val Hoyle, I see nothing to celebrate here. She is right on track to eventually become the leader of our state.

    And if she is elected Secretary of State and anything should happen to Brown ( assuming she also wins in next year's election too ), then she would immediately become Governor, just like Brown did.

    God help our state, though, if Brown is elected in 2016 and remains our governor long term.

    I would have kept the recall going, previous poster is spot on.

    While I agree this wasn't exactly tarred & feathered then rode out on a rail, it was a win.. of sorts.

    She's still a State Rep, but this years session is over only leaving a short session where she is no longer in a leadership role. Admittedly, not being a Holye fan that's fairly hard to swallow but consider who might have been appointed to replace her by the Commissioners from Eugene. She's got her eye on "bigger, better" and will likely choose to ride out the rest of her term in a way that best positions her for a run at the Sec. State Office... ie quietly sucking Liberal Dems backside and not 'angrying up' the gun owners.

    My hope here is that the recall has left a mark that will cast doubt in the minds of the voters in any future election.

    .. and yes, may god help us to avoid a Brown '16.
