General Election 2012 Endorsement List
Updated On: Oct 24, 2012

OREGON STATE SENATE

Following is the list of Oregon AFSCME Council 75 endorsements for the Nov. 6 General Election. Our union utilizes a democratic endorsement process. Candidates are required to fill out a questionnaire and then interview before a panel of union members; that panel then gives its endorsement recommendations to the union's Political Action Committee (PAC). After review, the PAC forwards those recommendations to the full Oregon AFSCME Executive Board, which has the final say on endorsements.

 

The only exceptions to this process are those state legislators who compiled a 100 percent AFSCME voting record in the previous session (in this case, the 2011 session) and are running for the same office. Legislators who meet those two qualifications receive an automatic endorsement. The names of candidates who have gained automatic endorsements are denoted with an asterisk (*) below. We have also provided a link to each endorsed candidate's website where available.

 

Fields left blank indicate that further action is pending, or that no action was taken in that particular race.

 

Please note that if you don't see your state Senate seat on the list, it's because Senate seats are 4-year terms so only half of them are up for election every other year. As there are 30 Oregon Senate seats, typically 15 are up for election each two-year cycle. However, there is one "extra" Oregon Senate election this year in District 17, due to former state Sen. Suzanne Bonamici winning election to the U.S. Congress in mid-term of her Oregon Senate seat. Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward won the seat within Democrat candidates last year (as Bonamici was a Democrat), but under Oregon law the seat opens up in this General Election as a two-year term to fill out the remainder of Bonamici's original term.

 

We will also soon add local union endorsements to this list. Generally speaking, such endorsements are left to the local with employees at that agency; that is, Local 2831, which represents Lane County employees, has "jurisdiction" in making the endorsement decisions for the Lane County Commission, for example. In some cases the Council may then follow with an endorsement of its own. If your local union has made an endorsement for a race in your community that you would like to see listed here, please e-mail that information to Oregon AFSCME Communications Director Don Loving.

 

(At the top of this Election Central page there is a link to a more detailed explanation of the union's endorsement and contribution process.)
