This week the media is clearing the record over candidate Matt Lindland (Willamette week article) and false criminal allegations representing the worst in politics. Not only is Lindland innocent, but let me state three “business” reasons why he is exactly the type of person we need as a candidate. Lindland (1) runs a promotions company that hosts several sporting events in Oregon (2) involved in managing a gym and (3) runs a business that manufactures athletic equipment.
Lindland is the type of successful small businessman we want in the legislature. Lindland is also a Taxpayer Protection pledge signer who has decided to side with taxpayers.
