12.12.13 Blog KitzIn an unprecedented early endorsement, the Oregon Business Association Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Directors announced yesterday that it has formally endorsed Governor John Kitzhaber for re-election.

The governor recently announced that he will run for a historic fourth term in office.
 
 “It’s no surprise that the national media has paid so much attention to Oregon because Governor Kitzhaber has shown the country how to govern by bringing people together,” said John Russell, founder of Russell Development, OBA PAC Board Chair, in a news release. “John Kitzhaber has proven himself to be the energetic, forceful and innovative leader that Oregon has needed to produce big results. We need those qualities for the next four years to tackle the daunting issues still facing us," Russell said.
 
The OBA says its early support is a not only a statement of confidence but a testament to the Governor’s balanced style of leadership, his work ethic and his ability to find the common ground necessary to make progress on difficult and politically charged issues.
 
“OBA prides itself on representing a balanced voice and Governor Kitzhaber has demonstrated a true commitment to taking on tough, seemingly intractable problems and getting results for Oregonians and our economy,”  OBA President Ryan Deckert said in the release.

Absolutely unbelievable! Cover Oregon, Unemployment, Budget Deficits, etc. Oh yes, Oregon is in great shape! And OBA can't even wait to see who the other candidates are! And this is a "balanced voice"? I guess I don't need to ask where OBA gets its funding.
