Anna Williams: Protecting Forests
While the fires raging across our state have covered our skies in a thick, hazardous fog, the fires have made other things very clear. The time for half measures, delay, and walkouts regarding climate action is over.
Science knows. And science is telling us that with each successive wildfire season our forest get dryer, creating the perfect conditions for even more powerful, long-lasting, and disastrous fires. Anna Williams also knows. She is endorsed by trusted environmental organizations like the Oregon League of Conservation Voters and the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club because she's continuing her commitment to take action immediately.
Republican opponent, Jeff Helfich, is backed by Timber Unity, a far-right group that designed and funded the Republican walkouts last legislative session. There is little doubt that if Helfrich had been in the Oregon Legislature last session, he too would have walked out on us.
Hood River and Sandy got lucky this time, but next season it could be much worse.
House District 52 needs Representative Anna Williams in Salem to take care of this critical unfinished business for our climate. Please join us — let's send her back.
