    Being in a business that deals with the public, I know there are many more businesses and the so called rich heading for the exit. They may continue to work in Oregon and pay some taxes, but their investment income will be removed from Oregon and Oregon taxation.

    Measure 66 & 67 will cost Oregon dearly. Many are saying they will get me once with the 2009 retroactive taxes, but they will not get me twice.

    They are not writing to their elected representatives, they are just quietly leaving and taking their evil wealth with them.

    I appreciate the job Sal is doing. It has to be difficult with the legislature dominated by the fiscally irresponsible Democrats. Hang in there Sal.

    The Medford Chamber’s push poll to it’s members regarding businesses moving was read verbatum by Sal on the floor and the letter from Bruce Huff was right out of the Medford Chamber’s newletter. Interesting, there’s a huge muli-million dollar investment in reviving downdown Medford announced today. A very large retail business announced it is moving to Medford today.

    Hood River recently announced a large business is moving into their area from Washington State.

    Oregon is the 5th cheapest state out of all 50 to do business.

      Skippy,

      The business you speak of is already in Medford and the project is a scaled down version of the original proposed. The downtown project is being funded by the Urban Renewal agency. You’ve got to get the whole story. There’s plenty of controversy in town as the last Urban Renewal projects have gone unused or unfinished. Business is not moving into Medford.

      The fact the letter from Bruce Huff was in the Chamber’s newsletter does not make less true.
