Milwaukie's Carolyn Tomei urges voters to replace incumbent election official whose incompetency has cost $600,000.

Clackamas County's clerk is a critical link between citizens and their local government. A primary duty of the office is to ensure all eligible voters have equal access to the ballot box. I recommend Catherine McMullen as our next Clackamas County clerk.Carolyn Tomei

We need a change. Current County Clerk Sherry Hall recently made serious errors that damage the integrity of our elections. In May, more than half of the Clackamas County primary ballots were misprinted with faulty barcodes, diverting hundreds of county employees from their normal jobs, delaying the state vote count and costing taxpayers $600,000.

Catherine can bring the change and competency we need. She is committed to fair, transparent and resilient local elections, and she will prioritize voter education and voter participation for all eligible voters in Clackamas County.

Catherine is a voter-focused elections administrator, and in 2015 she started, developed and fought for the award-winning Voter Education and Outreach Program, the only local government program of its kind in Oregon.

Catherine brings experience, expertise and commitment. I urge you to vote for Catherine McMullen for Clackamas County clerk.

As the former mayor of Milwaukie and former state representative in Clackamas County, I am personally aware of the importance, accuracy and timely ballot distribution and tallying.
