Citizen: Let's make November election Sherry Hall's last as clerk
I'm writing to urge all Clackamas County voters, regardless of party, to vote for Catherine McMullen for county clerk.
Catherine is a certified elections administrator, with years working in the busiest, most populous county in Oregon ensuring quality processes are in place that result in election results voters can trust.
I haven't trusted Sherry Hall with Clackamas County elections since as far back as 2010, when a ballot misprinting included a race that should have been in a different election. Or in 2012, when one of her employees was caught tampering with ballots. That employee ended up sentenced to 90 days in jail. And worst yet, this past May when her lack of oversight, risk assessment and contingency planning resulted in the worst election in recent history. Her mistakes go back almost as long as she's held the elected position of clerk.
Catherine McMullen will restore integrity, transparency and quality to Clackamas County elections and all other clerk duties. She's a true professional. I'm excited to make this the last election Sherry Hall administers in Clackamas County. Please vote for Catherine McMullen for county clerk.
