Walk On

Just a quick note here to let my readers know that I will be voting for Vicki Walker for Oregon's Secretary of State. Vicki strongly supported PERS members and retirees during the 2003 legislative session, and will do an outstanding job as Secretary of State. That makes two endorsements for me in this upcoming May 20, 2008 primary. I have not made my decision on who to vote for in the US Senate race (Merkley or Novick), for President (Clinton or Obama), or in the Oregon 5th Congressional District (Darlene Hooley's seat). Similarly, in House District 38, there are several outstanding candidates and I have no particular favorite amongst them. I don't get to vote in the Portland races and so have no preferences there either, except that Sam Adams has not been a friend of public employees. I *may* make some other recommendations as we get closer to May 20th, but for now, the only races that interest me are those for Secretary of State and for Oregon Attorney General. In that latter race, John Kroger is the man.

Are your preferences always for Democrats or only due to the Oregon closed promary?

I vote both ways in a regular election but in the Oregon primary I cannot cross over.
