Measure 30 Vote, Special Election February 3, 2004
Dear Oregon Citizens:
The Commissioners of the Oregon Commission on Black Affairs are encouraging all Oregon voters to take part in the Special Election taking place on February 3, 2004 in Oregon. Let us not take for granted the great privilege we have of voting on issues of importance. As we remember Black History Month 2004 and our young men and women serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, and around the world, Remember the privilege we have to vote on February 3, 2004.
The issues that face Oregonians and our future, "Our Youth", are complex and are issues that we must deal with. Newspapers, business, government, religious, and community leaders in Oregon have all commented on the critical nature of this vote for our states future.
The Commissioners of the Oregon Commission on Black Affairs are asking you to support and vote for Measure 30. Join with Governor Kulongoski, former Governors Kitzhaber and Atiyeh, and those concerned with education, social services, the Oregon Health Plan, public safety, and the economic future of Oregon. It is no accident that support for Measure 30 is bi-partisan.
We ask voters to look beyond partisanship and voter campaigns orchestrated from Washington, DC. Oregonians know what is best for the state of Oregon and we are asking those voters in Oregon to Support and Vote for Measure 30 on February 3, 2004.
Commissioners of the
