Golden stands alone
Many of us are troubled by “big money” in politics. Yet candidates still accept corporate and PAC money, all the while claiming they are not influenced.
Sure! We know the PACs expect something more than nice words and a ’thank you’ for their contributions.
In Oregon Senate District 3, one candidate refuses to be bought. If you want a government of, by and for the people, your candidate is Jeff Golden. In the interests of integrity, and to his great credit, Jeff has even declined donations from PACs that are clearly consistent with his values and beliefs.
Jeff has a track record of public service as county commissioner, as an environmental advocate and more. With this experience and knowledge of the system, once in Salem, Jeff would hit the ground running.
Jeff Golden stands head and shoulders above all declared candidates of all parties in the Senate District 3 race.
