Kate Brown Earns Scorn for Slow Action, Poor Transparency In OHA Scandal

Oregon GOP Chair Says State Needs New Governor Able To Restore Public’s Trust

 

Wilsonville, OR – Democrat Governor Kate Brown is coming under fire again for her disturbing lack of transparency.  With news of the Oregon Health Authority’s attempts to “manipulate news coverage to discredit a provider it is battling over reimbursement rates,” the Mail Tribune published a scathing editorial, contending the scandal “reflects poorly” on Brown, who was “slow to respond to the revelations:”

 

 

 

”Equally as disturbing as a public agency plotting to manipulate news coverage for political ends is a governor who took the better part of four days to respond after the plan was revealed 타임 워치.

 

 

Brown did not respond to the Portland Tribune story last Thursday when it appeared or on Friday.  The governor issued a statement late Tuesday praising Saxton’s tenure in the job while announcing her resignation:

 

 

‘Today, after discussion with Lynne Saxton, we have agreed that her resignation is in the best interests of the agency,’ Brown said 판본체. ‘Lynne has led the Oregon Health Authority through its most challenging times and helped me ensure that every Oregonian has access to the care they need Download the movie pool. She is known as a fighter for Oregon’s values and I am proud of how she brought that level of commitment to the staff of OHA.’

 

 

If the plan described in the emails reflects ‘Oregon’s values’ or the commitment of the OHA staff, Saxton is not the only one who should be looking for a new job.”

 

 

 

Governor Brown took office promising accountability and transparency in the wake of disgraced Democrat Ex-Governor John Kitzhaber’s scandalous resignation, yet Brown has consistently failed to live up to her promises,” stated Oregon GOP Chairman Bill Currier 롤 오토큐 다운로드.

 

 

It was just a few months ago that Governor Brown was caught red-handed trying to hide from the public the circumstances of her firing of the Department of Environmental Quality Board.  The Governor is now mired in yet another transparency scandal Download Hancom Office 2010.

 

 

“She still doesn’t get it,” added Currier, “Government Transparency and Accountability applies to her too.  She acts like it’s limited to whatever she can’t get away with hiding.”

 

 

“Kate Brown is simply not the type of sincere leader who is able to restore the public’s trust.  Oregon needs a new governor in 2018 – a Republican – who can and will java ee 다운로드.

Gov. Brown signs legislation raising tobacco age to 21

The Associated Press

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed legislation that increases the legal age for using and buying tobacco products from 18 to 21. The law takes effect at the start of 2018. The law targets sellers rather than buyers, with stores facing fines if they sell tobacco products to people younger than 21.

 

Oregon becomes fifth state to increase tobacco age to 21

The Oregonian

The age increase will take effect Jan. 1 and affect sale of traditional tobacco products along with vapes. The law makes Oregon one of five states, along with California, Hawaii, Maine and New Jersey, to raise the tobacco age to 21. Oregon’s new law aims to crack down on tobacco vendors who sell to the underaged, rather than punish the buyers. Fines for store clerks and managers who sell tobacco products to minors start at $50 and $250, but can reach $500 and $1000 after multiple offenses 페도라 리눅스.

Editorial: Raising money for schools

Register-Guard

The OEA’s best option at this point would be to work with legislators and business people in a joint effort to raise funds for education, a goal they all share. Union representatives have said in the past that businesses aren’t willing to work with them. Business groups have said unions won’t give them the time of day and are particularly hostile toward suggestions for cost containment, which businesses see as essential. It’s time to forget all that, bring the parties together and do some serious work on tax reform and government spending controls. Going through endless repetitions of the Measure 97 fiasco do nothing but waste more money and time — both of which could better be spent working together to improve Oregon’s schools.

Kate Brown Makes Oregon The Most Extreme Sanctuary State Says National Media

Oregon GOP Chair Calls Governor’s Policy “Shameful, Lawless, and Dangerous”

 

Wilsonville, OR – With Oregon’s status as a “sanctuary” state coming under fire after the alleged brutal assault of a 65 year old Portland woman by a criminal illegal alien who had been shielded from federal authorities under state policies despite having been repeatedly deported, Democrat Governor Kate Brown is refusing to back down from her reckless support for Oregon’s “sanctuary” status, she is now preparing to double down on the policy Maple Seed.

Attorney, who was appointed by President Barack Obama and recently penned an op-ed saying Oregon’s “sanctuary” policy “directly contravenes federal immigration law and threatens public safety.”

 

The Daily Caller reported on Oregon’s “sanctuary” policy and the recent controversy surrounding it:

 

”The blanket prohibition prevents police from arresting illegal aliens unless they have broken certain immigration-related sections of the federal criminal code or are the subject of a warrant signed by a federal judge or magistrate Download Loblox for free. Most of Oregon’s police agencies also interpret that law to mean that they cannot agree to requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to hold criminal aliens in local jails beyond their release dates…

 

Oregon Democrats remain undeterred in their push to bolster the state’s sanctuary laws, even after an illegal immigrant allegedly raped a 65-year-old Portland woman in late July 쿼터스. The suspect, Mexican national Sergio Jose Martinez, had been deported more than a dozen times and was the subject of an ICE detainer, but Multnomah county jail officials released him from custody in December 2016 without notifying immigration agents Download the frequency.

Timeline for January 23, 2018 Special Election

The Oregon Constitution requires that after the Legislature passes a tax increase, the people shall have the power to veto it through the referendum process 유튜브 플레이 리스트. This referendum process enables the people to overrule politicians in Salem. The referendum is the “people’s veto” and gives Oregonians, who can collect enough signatures within 90 days, the opportunity to have such tax increases placed on the ballot for a democratic vote Download the sql query analyzer. This right of referendum was adopted by the voters in 1902 and is essential to our democracy. This year, and back in 2009, the legislature passed laws to circumvent the time-tested referendum process sulinux 2.0 gui 다운로드.

On July 6, 2017 the legislature passed Senate Bill 229. This bill avoids the existing referendum process in the following important ways:

First, it moved the referendum date from the November 2018 general election to a special election on January 23, 2018; second, it removed the Attorney General’s authority to write the ballot title and gave that authority to a partisan legislative committee; third, it removed the authority to write an explanatory statement from a balanced, nonpartisan committee and gave that authority to a partisan legislative committee; and forth, it instructed the Secretary of State to create a timeline for the special referendum process 아이 필 프리티 자막.

In accordance with the Secretary of State’s responsibilities under Senate Bill 229, the Elections Division announced today the special election timeline which (unlike the 2009 referendum timeline which gave only 33 hours for public comment), provides sufficient time for both public input and judicial review 레인 미터 테마 다운로드.

In short, today’s proposed special election timeline attempts to follow the time-tested election process, while ensuring ample time for public comment, legislative drafting, and Supreme Court review 대신 증권 크레온.

The Secretary of State’s ultimate obligation is to you, the people of Oregon, and is dedicated to ensuring a fair referendum election. This timeline aligns as closely as possible with the established statutory process as if the Attorney General were drafting the ballot title 애슐리. The timeline below gives the partisan legislative committee two and a half weeks to draft a ballot title. This is even longer than the Attorney General normally has to draft a ballot title Rock of Age. The proposed timeline also aligns with the Attorney General’s customary process of providing the important opportunity for the public to comment on the draft before it is finalized 카카오톡 mp3. After the period for public comment is past, the partisan legislative committee then has two weeks to review public comments, respond to criticism for partisan drafting, make necessary improvements to the language, and certify a final ballot title 포스터. Under today’s timeline, the Oregon Supreme Court has only five weeks for judicial review—a process which normally requires months.

Back in 2009, the legislature circumvented the customary process for writing the ballot titles for Measures 66 and 67. For those Measures, only 33 hours were provided for public comment, then, 20 hours later the final ballot titles were passed. Then, only a few weeks were allowed for Supreme Court review. This was insufficient time. It was a charade that violated the fundamental fairness of the democratic process. Today’s timeline corrects the 2009 inadequacies by providing adequate time for public participation and Supreme Court review.

The calendar below sets forth the timeline. If you believe the timeline is appropriate to enable adequate time for public involvement and Supreme Court review, please email us at elections.sos@oregon.gov. If you have comments or suggestions to improve this timeline, our Elections Division would also like to hear from you at elections.sos@oregon.gov.

Editorial: Buehler’s challenges

Register-Guard

A moderate Republican who makes it to the general election ballot has a chance in the Oregon governor’s race. In four of the past nine elections, the Democrat has won with less than 50 percent of the vote. Dudley came within 22,000 votes of defeating Kitz­haber in 2010. Presuming Buehler can present himself as a plausible leader — a presentation Democrats will work to prevent, emphasizing the more conservative aspects of the Republican’s record and ensuring that no one forgets an Oregon Government Ethics Commission’s finding that he failed to disclose income — the question will be whether he can whet Oregonians’ appetite for change Novinson.

Editorial Agenda 2017: Proposal for neutered citizens’ commission would betray police-reform promises

The problem is that the DOJ, under the Trump Administration, has been directed to review such police-reform agreements and consent decrees with an eye toward emphasizing local control and boosting officer safety and morale. “It is not the responsibility of the federal government to manage non-federal law enforcement agencies,” the memo from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions states. That’s hardly a call for aggressive accountability. If City Council can’t find the courage to stick to their original pledge, then the public should take their case to Judge Simon.

Obama Holdover US Attorney Calls Kate Brown Sanctuary Policy Illegal, Unsafe

Oregon GOP Chair Scolds Democrat Governor for Playing Politics with Public Safety

 

 

Wilsonville, OR – With Democrat Governor Kate Brown indicating that she will not veto a new bill passed by her allies in the state legislature to strengthen Oregon’s reckless “sanctuary” state status, Oregon U.S aix ssh 다운로드. Attorney Billy J. Williams recently published an op-ed in The Oregonian warning that Oregon’s “sanctuary” status “directly contravenes federal immigration law and threatens public safety:”

 

 

”A narrow reading of what Oregon state law permits – especially as it pertains to information sharing – has proliferated among jurisdictions throughout the state amidst the heightened political climate surrounding immigration issues 바위 처럼 다운로드.

 

 

Some sheriffs suggest that, short of ICE agents obtaining a federal criminal arrest warrant, they do not have any legal obligation to share information or hold an individual in custody who is subject to a detainer 공동 번역 성서 다운로드. This requirement is inherently unreasonable as illegal aliens are frequently held for only a matter of hours. Furthermore, it is nearly impossible to obtain a federal criminal arrest warrant without basic identifying information Ms office 2013 standard.

 

 

Simply put, Oregon’s sanctuary status declaration directly contravenes federal immigration law and threatens public safety 터보 다시 mp3. This has put many sheriffs in the position of choosing whether to violate state or federal law. It’s an untenable position. The Department of Justice takes this issue very seriously and has begun to take steps to correct it.”

 

 

 

“Democratic Obama Appointee Williams has dispelled the fiction that Oregon’s ‘Sanctuary State’ policies rely on and made it utterly clear that local and state officials are breaking federal law,” stated Oregon GOP Chairman Bill Currier.  “It can no longer be denied that Kate Brown’s reckless sanctuary policies continue to put Oregon citizens at risk to criminal illegal aliens.”

 

 

Governor Brown publicly testified in favor of House Bill 3464 in June.  But even after the disturbing news last month of a vicious assault in Oregon by a criminal illegal alien who had been shielded from federal authorities by the state’s “sanctuary” status, Brown does not appear to have had a change of heart 옥수수 영화.

 

 

 

“Kate Brown needs to stop playing politics with Oregonians’ safety and start protecting the people of her state by complying with federal immigration law,” said Currier.  “Kate Brown’s negligent disregard for the safety and security of our state’s citizens is yet another reason why Oregonians are ready for a change in 2018.”
