I am voting for John Orr for State Rep. I’ve known John for decades in many capacities and think he has the intelligence and integrity to do the job.

His main opponent Tim Josi, is a gang leader in the timber industry-funded lawsuit that some counties are bringing against the Oregon Department of Forestry in an attempt to increase the amount of timber that can be taken from the state forests. Besides being an environmental rip off, it is costing the Oregon Department of Justice millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to defend the state. This after the state and the counties agreed, less than a decade ago, to a forest management plan that balanced timber harvest and environmental concerns.

John has an excellent environmental record, having served as the president of the North Coast Land Conservancy. I urge everyone concerned about protecting our forests for future generations to vote for John Orr.
