Milestone!!! Today marks the 100th straight day that the Taxpayer Association of Oregon has published an article regarding the coronavirus and it’s historic economic shutdown.
Taxpayers Association of Oregon
– We debated a shutdown before there was a shutdown.
– We offered re-opening ideas back when people were afraid to talk about it.
– We chronicled every mis-step by the Governor and complimented every correct one.
– We offered free masks to people in need — 2,000 sent!
Most of all, during this unparalleled dark moment in history, the Taxpayer Association of Oregon offered up 100 consecutive days of ideas, solutions, commentary, debate, local reporting and lots of up-to-the-minute facts on this virus catastrophe.
