February 10, 2017, was the last meeting in our area that I could find out about that was open to the general public. Greg Walden presided. Several of us carpooled to Weston to attend. This was during the time our health care coverage was in jeopardy of being destroyed. Folks tried to explain their dire situations calmly. There was no yelling or any form of disrespect towards Greg. Most of the folks were disgusted to hear him say straight-faced that he was worried too because he had to deal with the same insurance we had! He then returned to Congress and attempted to remove coverage for pre-existing conditions. Remember Senator McCain’s famous “thumbs down”!
Since 1970 (original Earth Day) I have worked for wildlife habitat and clean air and water, as well as access women’s health care. Since the Weston meeting, I have had the opportunity to talk to (not just listen to) Jamie McLeod-Skinner in Pendleton at least four times! Jamie has the education and history of working for the things that matter most to me.
Remember, the money she has raised for her campaign came from individual donors who care about our society and not from corporations and the powers that be. Please join me in voting for Jamie McLeod-Skinner to represent Oregon’s Second Congressional District.
