Sen. Boquist: Virus politics, freeway haters, more..

By Oregon State Senator Brian Boquist,
Highlights, excerpts from Sen. Boquist newsletter

— Oregon leftists think that their environmental policies that serve special interests will save the state from heat waves. One of their ideas? Don’t expand freeways.

— OHA has untold power over Oregon counties and is telling them to ‘take action now’ to avoid a resurgence. Remember, when the case counts are presented by leftist state-run media, it includes confirmed and presumptive cases. Data dashboard here.

— As Oregon is burning, with the Bootleg Fire reaching 400k acres, in large part due to failed forestry policies, Secretary of State Shemia Fagan weaponizes an audit to attack the timber industry.

— A leftist New York Times opinion journalist is considering running for Oregon gov. Meanwhile, Sandy Mayor Stan Pulliam wins a second straw poll to be Oregon’s gov. on the red ticket.

— Just as billionaire Jeff Bezos launched into space, leftist congressman Earl Blumenauer sees dollar signs – or the opportunity for a new tax. Democrats love taxes.

— Rioters vandalize 4 churches in Portland.

— Since Gov. Kate Brown has full power over Oregon, another face diaper mandate could be in the future.
