There is one ballot measure in November that will really bring out Republican voters. Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) was successful in gathering over 77,000 signatures on their citizens veto referendum to overturn the bill which required the DMV to issue driver cards to illegal aliens. We need to urge voters to vote NO on this measure in November.
PODL would like to mail every Republican County Party information packed brochures and other materials for their members to pass out at local events this summer. The Oregon Republican Party has endorsed the referendum to overturn the driver card bill and the Republican Party platform has a plank in opposition to giving Oregon driver cards to illegal aliens.
Two of the Chief Petitioners and endorsers of the referendum are Representative Sal Esquivel (R- Medford) and Representative Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer). Also, Senator Tim Knopp and Senator Jeff Kruse have endorsed the referendum campaign. The Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association (Sheriffs of Oregon PAC) has also given their endorsement to the referendum campaign. The ORP platform is clear on illegal immigration. Needless to say, voters who turn out for this measure are likely to vote for Republicans up and down the ticket.
If you would like materials such as buttons, pencils, informational brochures about the referendum, etc. to distribute at your events this summer, or if you would like PODL volunteers to help staff your booth, please contact Cynthia Kendoll at [email protected] or by phone at (503) 581-6485 and Protect Oregon Driver Licenses will send them out to you.
If you would like to invite a speaker to attend one of your meetings to talk about the referendum, what’s happening on the border or any other immigration related topic please contact Cynthia!
Thank you so very much!
Chair, Polk County Republican Party
