IS THE SECRETARY OF STATE FRUSTRATING THE PETITION PROCESS?

SALEM, OR - Democrats are doing their best to interfere with the signature gathering process to refer a $1.1 billion tax increase to the Oregon voters.

The clock started ticking when Governor Ted Kulongoski signed the largest tax increase in Oregon's history into law. From that date those who want to refer the law to the people for a vote have only 90 days to gather 50,000 signatures.

First the petition must be approved by the Secretary of State Bill Bradbury (D). It appears the Secretary has frustrated the petition approval process in an effort to reduce the number of days available for signature gathering. The question is, When will the Secretary of State stop delaying approval of the petition?

A Boston Tea Party will be held at High Noon on the Capitol Steps on Tuesday, September 9, 2003 to kick off the campaign to raise money; and, if the petition is ready, start gathering the signatures. The purpose is to teach the tax-and-spend political crooks a lesson. The Tea Party is a rally to oppose Governor Kulongoski's $1.1 Billion tax and to help support the tax referendum petition!

The organizers want you to bring your tea bags, an American flag and join the fun. The petition supporters are the Taxpayer Association of Oregon and Citizens for a Sound Economy. Due to the problems securing approval of the petition by Secretary of State Bardburry the organizers indicate they need to get organized and have, .Less than 90 days to collect 50,000 signatures to refer the $1.1 billion tax to the voters.

All questions should be referred to:

Petition supporters: Taxpayer Association of Oregon PO Box 23573 Tigard OR 97281 (503) 603-9009

Citizens for a Sound Economy; 3824 River Road N., #205 Keizer, OR 97303 phone: 503.463.9457
