The race for Oregon Governor is heating up, and as you may have heard, we now know who the top three candidates will be on the ballot in November: Betsy Johnson, Christine Drazan, and Tina Kotek. No matter if you consider yourself conservative, progressive, or independent, it’s important to have all the facts about Betsy’s poor track record of supporting core union priorities.
Betsy was first elected to the Oregon Legislature in 2000. Since then, she has had a long history of opposing union-supported legislation, including opposing collective bargaining rights. If Oregon workers are made aware of Betsy’s poor track record of supporting workers and their unions, they won’t forget.
Here’s a snapshot of some of her actions as a legislator that show us where her priorities are and are not:
You’re going to hear a lot from the candidates for Governor over the next few months, but one thing remains certain: We cannot allow a candidate with a record like Betsy Johnson’s into the Governor’s office. As Oregon recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and faces new challenges, we need an advocate for working people as Governor.
Please share this information with your friends, family, and coworkers and let them know that Betsy Johnson is bad for Oregon’s workers and their unions.
