Portland Transport sends candidate questionnaire to Oregon Governor candidates
Portland Transport, a blog focusing on transportation policy in the Portland/Vancouver metro region, has issued a candidate questionnaire (attached) for the Oregon Governor’s race.
“State policy has a huge effect on local transportation and our readers and the community will benefit from knowing where the candidates stand on issues that affect the region and the State,” said Chris Smith, President of Portland Transport.
The questionnaire was developed collaboratively by the online community at Portland Transport and the responses will be published on the site. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Portland Transport will not endorse a candidate, but will publish the responses as a service to voters, and provide an opportunity for the community to discuss the responses.
The questionnaire (PDF, 20K) was sent to the Kulongoski, Hill, Sorenson, Mannix, Saxton, Atkinson and Westlund campaigns. The Westlund campaign has responded that they will take a pass for now (presumably since as an Independent, Westlund is not in the May primary) but will consider responding during the general election campaign.
