Campaign ad sample: Bob Stacey, Measure 26-108 and 26-118

Campaign ad sample: Bob Stacey, Measure 26-108 and 26-118
By NW Spotlight,

See below for three samples of campaign postcards filling voter’s mail boxes in the Portland area. The ads are for Metro race Bob Stacey, Tom Hughes, Measure 26-118 for Oregon Historical Society and Measure 26-108 the taxpayer funding of candidate elections (otherwise known as voter owned elections).

Mailing #1 . Yes on 26-108:
This mailing is in defense of taxpayer funding of candidates. It makes the case that people are spending less on campaigns and that is why taxpayer funding of political campaigns is a success. (Maybe people are spending less on candidates in Portland because of a recession? disliking candidates? or maybe it is because Portland has sucked all the money from people’s wallets to pay for taxpayer funding of campaigns?)

Mailing #2 . Bob Stacey vs. Tom Hughes

This Stacey vs. Hughes mailing attempts to show the reader a clear difference between the candidates for Metro — Bob Stacey and Tom Hughes. The choice is between never ending pastures of paradise and evil houses! I notice that Bob Stacey says in this mailing that “Bob Stacey create jobs” next to the picture of the remote barn. If no one is allowed to build a home or a business how will exactly Bob Stacey create jobs?

Mailing #3 . Measure 26-118. Tax levy for Oregon Historical Society

This mailing has strong words in the measure to increase tax funding to pay for the Oregon Historical Society. As you can see in the photo the potent statements that used are “Their doors will close” and an even more frightening ending statement that reads “…when you lose your history, you lose your future.” I suppose the threat of the end of time is a good dramatic negative political consequence if I have ever heard of one.

    These measures will pass, even without the added brochure mailings

    Gad zooks.

    Bob Stacey just tosses that phrase around: CREATE JOBS, like it’s freaking magic he can pull out of his butt. the only jobs e created so far were campaign jobs for measure 49.

    and I love how they use “He’s the developers’ choice” on Tom Hughes like it’s evil. Ooooh… the big scary DEVELOPERS, who bring freaking JOBS to the area. Beware!!!

    I’d vote for a coffee table over STacey. Happy to vote for Hughes if I lived in metro, but im just south. Someone vote for him for me ok? 🙂


    Stacey v. Hughes is an absolute “nose holder”. Enviro whacko v. little man complex – Napoleon. Why can’t we get away from Enviro’s v. PERS retirees with too damned much time on their hands at OUR EXPENSE?

    Some of this is pretty ridiculous. I guess I am wondering when we will get to the situation in Nevada. Apparently they vote there using touch screen voting machines. When your ballot comes up Hank Reid seems to be selected by default a little too frequently to be a glitch. Given shenanigans like this as well as Axelrods recent comments I sure wouldn’t be counting on a Republican takeover just yet.

      Way to hedge your bets. Good thinking.

      “Given shenanigans like this as well as Axelrods recent comments I sure wouldn’t be counting on a Republican takeover just yet. ”

      Yes of course. Whenever Democrats win its because we cheated. Most people really think and vote like Rupert.

    Wrote in Ed Zumwalt. Yay, he’s vehemently opposed to the ilks of TriMet directors railroading us into into the pathos of unsustainable lefty messes – too, freak’n little cuckold birds like Metro’s COO-coo bird, Michael Jordan – all, whom ought be should reconsigned to Orwell’s Animal Farm as gruel for DNC Kukoburras: Wu hoo, wu hoo, yahoo you too, David!

      What do you have against plain English friend?

      • “”

        TriMet and Metro speak in tongues foreign to taxpayer’s $ensibilities friend. In plain King’s English: Both suck, er, extract like robbing hoods, more aptly described, perhaps, as surly clapper-clawed fustilarian barnacles. Exuent ~
        “Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
        As I foretold you, were all spirits and
        Are melted into air, into thin air;
        And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
        The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
        The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
        Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
        And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
        Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
        As dreams are made on, and our little life
        Is rounded with a sleep.”
