Oregon League of Conservation Voters Endorses Bill Hall
The Oregon League of Conservation Voters (OLCV) has endorsed Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall’s candidacy for re-election. Hall also received OLCV’s endorsement in the 2004 and 2008 elections.
“I am proud to have earned OLCV’s endorsement again,” said Hall. “This is an organization that upholds values that I believe in—that we are obligated to be good stewards of the Earth, and that a healthy environment and a healthy economy go hand-in-hand.”
Hall was interviewed by a panel of local OLCV members, who then recommended him to the organization’s statewide political action committee. “It was a good forum to discuss some of the initiatives our board has taken a leadership role in recent years, such as the responsible development of wave energy; the introduction of a system of marine reserves that is sensitive to local impacts; and local sustainability initiatives through our Solid Waste District.” He continued: “I also talked about several initiatives I have taken the lead on, including county support for an ODOT pilot program that has dramatically scaled back use of herbicides on a 25-mile stretch of Highway 101 in the county and our investment in the Oregon Coast Community Forest project. The concept of a locally owned and managed working forest is one that can generate support from groups who have long been at odds over forestry management,” said Hall. “Oregon has a proud heritage of environmental stewardship,” Hall concluded. “I will do my best to continue to uphold my share of that legacy.”Share on Facebook
