Oregon League of Conservation Voters Endorse Bill Hall for another term as Lincoln County Commissioner
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.”
