Letters to the Editor for Oct. 29, 2010


Kitzhaber is ready to lead — now
To the editor:
Dudley is running on a “new face” “new direction” platform. It’s the best he can do as a completely untested candidate with no political, job-creating, or qualifying management experience. It is very understandable that Oregonians are hoping for a miracle. But let’s take a look at California’s hope for a miracle eight years ago.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, too, was a tall, handsome, athletic, businessman-celebrity who had never held political office. Californians swooned. Having fallen for the same hype and hope we now hear about the Republican candidate in Oregon, California voters even recalled sitting Governor Gray Davis to put in the pie-in-the-sky Terminator, Schwarzenegger.

Where is California today? 13-percent+ unemployment under the inexperienced newcomer. And what about his promise of working with both parties for a bright new future for California? Annual budget stalemates, California paying its bills with IOUs, and spending deficits as far as the eye can see.

Oregonians, don’t be fooled. Governing is not basketball.  A “new face” could mean a bad governor. There is no miracle out there. Oregon needs all the skillful experience it can get — starting day one. And John Kitzhaber has it. Elect Kitzhaber.
