Supporting Oregon Rep. Paul Holvey

The GTFF leadership affirms our support for Oregon Representative Paul Holvey in light of recent recall efforts. We recognize Representative Holvey’s long record of supporting labor organizations and labor issues through legislation, as well as the broad support Holvey has from other local unions and members of the Lane County Education Workers coalition. We encourage our members to reject this recall effort, which lacks organic support among constituents and appears to be an effort to mislead voters about Holvey’s overall record. Non-substantive recall efforts like this threaten the democratic process and make it more difficult for duly elected officials to complete their duties without interference. For more information, please see Representative Holvey’s statement on the recall:
