Other lies from knute
Buehler falsely argued that the Governor hasn’t supported seismic safety measures, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Governor Brown led the bipartisan effort to pass the most comprehensive, statewide infrastructure package in Oregon’s history -- including significant investments in seismic resiliency (HB 2017). Knute Buehler voted no on that bill.
“Furthering work to advance healthy, resilient national forests, habitat, and communities, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, U.S. Forest Service Regional Forester Jim Peña, Oregon Department of Forestry State Forester Doug Decker, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Curt Melcher jointly signed a Good Neighbor Authority agreement [on March 29, 2016].” United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service Press Release: "Oregon Governor, State Officials Sign Good Neighbor Agreement with Forest Service." 03/29/16
Buehler falsely claimed “the Governor may talk about increasing jobs in Southern Oregon but the record doesn’t reflect it.”
In reality, nearly 19,000 jobs have been added in Coos, Curry, Douglas, Jackson, and Josephine Counties since Kate Brown has been Governor.
In Southern Oregon, GDP is growing faster than the U.S. average. Unemployment rates are the lowest they’ve been in years.
