Real Candidates for office

Vote for people who will represent you on May 15 in Portland
She cries out for justice
She cries out for justice
Individuals For Justice recommends a vote for the following:


Cameron Whitten for Mayor, Community Activist. Individuals For Justice has often called for young and noble people to step up and Cameron is just that, we like the way he thinks and calls for "Unity."

Commissioner #1 Teressa Raiford, We like her position on gun control and she thinks about how to create jobs in Portland. Impressive during the debates she was invited to take part.

Commissioner #4 Mark White. We watched Mark's work on the Charter Commission and know he was concerned about the least among us. He wants to help and has the experiences to do just that-help! Only single candidate to receive the Oregon Progressive Party's nomination.
We looked at the following criteria:

1. Non-career politician, understands that they are representatives of the people and not a know-it-all elitist.

2. Understands that to be a leader one must listen.

3. Will work to re-establish the Charter Commission.

4. Are not bought by the Business Alliance.

5. Equitable treatment of all.

We, IFJ refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils. We want candidates that we can believe in and support. These are three noble people who will do their best.

Disclaimer:
All have not signed on to our criteria but have talked about most of the issues we are concerned with during our evaluation of the candidates.

Dream candidates must include: Dan Meek for Attorney-general. Or, better still, Secretary of State, next election cycle.

How about Joann Bowman Hardesty for Commissioner, next election cycle.

Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, "Henry, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?"

Molly Ivins, "It's like, duh. Just when you thought there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you're wrong."

and I am a citizen of the world."

Scott Fernandez has my vote--he is a home grown Oregonian who has not excepted any out of state donations and he has been fighting for over twelve years to keep Portland's water shed in public hands and unadulterated....
