Candidate Statement, 2018 Primary Voter Guide Petition:
To have the Candidate Statement placed in the Oregon Voters’ Guide, candidates have two options.
1. Pay a fee of $2,500
2. Gather signatures of registered voters in the district the candidate is seeking office. For the U.S. House seat, 300 signatures from registered voters must be validated. Jo Rae has opted to gather signatures. If you would like to assist her, please download and print both pages of the petition. You may sign this on the first line and sign as the circulator and return to Jo Rae. You may also gather signatures of other registered voters in the 4th Congressional District. If you do have other voters sign the petition, you must ask them if they are registered to vote and you must witness their signing of the petition. If the signer prints their name on the left side where it indicates to sign, simply have the voter sign under the print column. Jo Rae will be delivering the petitions to the Oregon Secretary of State Elections office on February 9th. Please return the petition prior to the 9th. Mail to 1033 Maple St Sw, Albany, OR 97321

Between Lambs & Lions this is a trailer for a movie my good friend Mark Sutherland is working on.
In a dystopian vision of the future, not far from now, leaders pay lip service to the democratic process in what is called the ‘New Republic’ – a shell of what previously was the Western world. Laws are ushered through the ‘House’ by un-elected ‘Members’ who agree with unanimous choruses of “Ayes”, stripping the nation of its last shreds of transparency, liberty and democracy. ‘Between Lambs and Lions’ follows Daniel Alesso, the one man who still believes in those values, being the thorn in the paw of the mighty totalitarian state. When the ‘House’ tries to pass a bill that outlaws any criticism of the regime and electing President Nebuchadnezzar ruler for life, he finally speaks out and begins to gain a following. Now a danger to the established elite will he be able to start the tides of change before they see fit to silence him???
