The Pacific Green Party of Oregon is opposing Measure 90, a statewide referendum on enacting “Top Two” primaries in Oregon. As this author has written before, Top Two is a false reform favored by corporate interests to limit choice in elections. It is opposed by non-partisan electoral reform groups like FairVote and Free and Equal.
The growing push for Top Two from superrich backers like John Arnold of Enron (yes, that Enron) may be a pre-emptive strike against ranked-choice voting (aka instant runoff voting), which is a superior system in every respect (see the above-linked article).
From the Pacific Green Party of Oregon:
Dangerous & Deceptive: Excellent guest viewpoint article in the Eugene Weekly by Pacific Green Party founder Blair Bobier. Do add your comments to this online article.
Also, read here about the ENRON energy trader John Arnold who is spending $1.5 million on passing Measure 90. Manipulating energy markets was not enough, now the agenda is manipulating Oregon’s elections!
THIS IS THE WEEK TO WRITE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPPOSING MEASURE 90.
Top Two is supported by billionaires. The NO side is supported by YOU.
