NO ON 90: Say NO to Selling Oregon to the Highest Bidder

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."

Dear friends,
Looks like they're at it again. Oregon's Ballot Measure 90 campaign continues to be inundated with corporate dollars, so that Big Business can take control of our elections.
Why does Big Business care about the "Top Two" Primary measure? Because Measure 90 will dramatically change our elections to give big corporations more influence, while limiting voters' choice. Measure 90 was written and funded by big corporations and millionaire CEOs to support their agenda at the expense of working people.
The campaign just got another infusion of hundreds of thousands of dollars from its big backers, including a $25,000 check from out-of-state billionaire investment banker David Crane. Crane is an outspoken critic of working people, including supporting the Wisconsin attacks on working families. He's been called California's "chief public employee pension critic" leaving many wondering if he's "just another Kochhead?"
Crane's not the only billionaire donating to Measure 90 efforts. One of the biggest funders of Measure 90 is the Association of Oregon Industries (AOI), the far-right business group that acts as the state affiliate of Koch Industries
