My Picks on the Ballot Measures:
Measure 102 – Bonding Authority for Affordable Housing – NO, Housing is less affordable because of state land use control and high SDC and other fees. Getting cities and counties (and taxpayers) in bed with local developers for affordable housing is a bad idea. The people supporting this measure include a phalanx of gang green, tax-wasting, hard left unionized and other usual suspects controlling Oregon.
Measure 103 – No Sales Tax permitted on Groceries – YES – some say making sure Groceries can’t be taxed helps pave the way for a future sales tax on everything else. I’m not buying those fears..
Measure 104 – Defines raising revenue for the three-fifths vote requirement for bills raising revenue. YES – Dems have been playing games in the legislature, raising taxes without the required 3/5 majority by claiming that they’re not raising taxes, just reducing DEDUCTIONS, for example, which raises taxes. This fixes that B.S.
Measure 105 – Repeals law forbidding state resources from being used to apprehend persons violating federal immigration laws (No Sanctuary State/Cities) a super big YES!
Measure 106 – Prohibits public funds from being spent on abortions. Does not ban abortions, but if you want an abortion, pay for it yourself. YES!
Jackson County 15-181 – Expands Definition of Firearms and Limits Enforcement of Firearms Laws – YES

Especially Ashland – Declining enrollment, and raising school taxes again? But that’s your call. We’re all still in love with polishing the dead fish of government school education,... Read more →
