Jeff Kropf to head new organization

Jeff Kropf, the previous AFP Oregon director, is going to be running a new organization whose purpose is to investigate, document and expose wasteful or corrupt government spending in Oregon. The new organization will have a very hard edge to the messaging that will be run on radio and TV in an effort to build citizen awareness and outrage.
