Marcus Swift, Director of Political and Legislative Affairs American Federation of Teachers-Oregon (AFT-Oregon)
Dear Senator Manning, On behalf of the 13,000 members of the American Federation of Teachers-Oregon, I’d like to congratulate you on receiving our official endorsement in the 2018 election. Our members endorsed you due to your 100% voting record on AFT-Oregon’s priority issues during the 2017 session. They were particularly impressed by your support of labor values. (I'll be honest - our members wish we could endorse Lawanda, too!) You can see the full list here. You can also see the Facebook post here, and we encourage your campaign to share it. I can also provide you with our logo for campaign use. Our top priority in 2017, was the Faculty Research Voice Bill (HB 3170), which was successfully signed into law. That historic legislation was one of the only expansions of union rights in the country last year. Thank you for your support! Additional legislation used to calculate voting records included Work Shouldn’t Hurt, the Rural Oregon Worker Protection Act, Renter Protections, Cover All Kids, End Profiling and Reproductive Health Equity. Thank you for your support and leadership on those issues, as well. We sincerely appreciate you standing with our members and fighting for their values. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Marcus Swift
Oregon State Council for Retired Citizens PAC (OSCRC PAC)
I am honored to receive the endorsement of Oregon State Council for Retired Citizens PAC (OSCRC PAC) today. Thank you OSCRC.
As we present this year’s May Primary endorsements, we note an increase in the diversity of candidates. There are six African Americans candidates in Multnomah County, as well as other people of color running for office. In Eugene, for example, James Manning, an outstanding candidate with an excellent record of public service, is running for re-election as a state senator in District 7. We think it is good for the state and city to hear from different viewpoints.
