This Primary Election, our industry experienced a tremendous defeat with the loss of Senator Rod Monroe (D-Portland). During the 2017 legislative session, he stood up to Speaker Kotek and the House of Representatives bill to end no-cause termination notices and impose rent control. Unfortunately, that resulted in the advocates taking him out in the Primary election.
We can’t let this happen again. This coming November election is critical. Either, we elect legislators who will help us manage our properties or we may face future set backs with rent control and/or the loss of no-cause evictions.
The Speaker sees the defeat of Senator Rod Monroe as one step closer. You remember the Oregonian headline...
Kotek pushes for statewide cap on rent hikes, end to 'no-cause' evictions
Never before has our industry been this aggressively attacked with our ability to control our properties in jeopardy.
This is a special appeal because we need to raise $50,000 for our PAC in the next few weeks to defend ourselves or face the consequences. So it’s time once again to please contribute to the Oregon Rental Housing KEY-PAC.
Your contribution of $5,000, $1,000, $500, $250 or $100 will go a long way this election cycle to help stop these attacks! A lot is at stake next legislative session.
ORHA’s legislative successes are built upon getting the right legislators elected! Regardless of a candidate’s political affiliation, ORH KEY-PAC helps elect candidates who will help protect your ability to own, operate and manage rental property.
Over the years, ORH KEY-PAC has made a huge impact in elections that have ultimately helped the rental industry.
This election, we need two to three times the amount you usually contribute to defend ourselves next legislative session.
So please, support the ORH KEY-PAC and support legislators who will understand and protect our industry. We simply can’t afford not to.
