There has been much speculation in this Facebook group and around Oregon about when we would file the recall petition to remove Governor Brown.
And though the COVID-19 situation would have prevented us from successfully gathering signatures earlier, we are now looking at the best time of year to circulate petitions! Thankfully, Oregonians are on the move again, despite the governor’s false “Stay Home, Save Lives” mantra and her unlawful and unconstitutional executive orders. They have figured it out: Her actions have little to do with a public health threat and much to do with control over our lives.
Now, finally, after all the preparation and hard work of many dedicated volunteers since late last year, I am excited to share that we will be filing the petition to recall Governor Kate Brown shortly after the May 19 primary election. The exact date depends on a few strategic factors, but it will be very soon afterward so we maximize the summer months.
It should be stated that waiting until after the primary election is over to file greatly increases our potential for success for two reasons. 1) The recall effort is not a distraction from, nor is it distracted by, the candidate campaigns and 2) Many more volunteers are available.
If you haven’t yet filled out a volunteer form, please do so soon. We only have a little time left before starting. You can access the form by clicking HERE.
