this is serious!
Oregonians!! Take action now! OREGON PEOPLE:
Have you heard the news that yesterday the State Land Board voted to sell all 90,000 acres of Oregon’s oldest forest to loggers, the Elliot State Forest - public land held in trust that includes critical old growth habitat - to a logging company. This wasn’t supposed to happen. There are two Democrats and one Republican on the Board. Governor Kate Brown fought the sale vehemently. Our new State Treasurer, Democrat Tobias Read, violated his campaign promises and voted to sell the ancient forest. What’s more, the bid is nearly $140 million less than what the lands appraised value - if you can even place a dollar number on Oregon’s most significant carbon sink.
BUT - there’s a glimmer of hope. Governor Brown secured one final vote that is scheduled for April. If you care about our green Oregon, and leaving a healthy state for our children,
CALL Treasurer Read and DEMAND that he switch his vote:

Don’t let him get away with this.
Copy and share - spread the word!
Make your voice heard and let’s Save The Elliot!
