Watching the nauseating ads for “conservative” candidates vying to replace Greg Walden, their attacks on each other prove one thing; NONE OF THEM is qualified to serve in Congress. I’ve known and conversed with Greg for years, often disagreed on many of his positions, but we politely DISCUSSED our differences. That often led to solutions to serve the people, notably veterans issues. None of these posses even a iota of civility and should not represent our district.

In these hard times it is not “party” that is most important in picking candidates, but civility and SANITY! California grows lots of almonds. We can’t afford to send any more Oregon nuts to Congress.
