President's Letter

- Terry Turner, President ORHA

The call went out and you answered.

ORHA mobilized and many traveled to Salem to attend and testify at the Committee hearings for HB 2004 on March 2nd. There were hundreds of landlords, property managers and investors there in opposition of HB 2004.

Thank you to all of those who were able to travel to Salem and to all of you who called and wrote to your Representatives. They need to know how this disastrous bill could be to your business.

We have not won the fight but, we definitely won the battle on that day. We’ve never had a showing in Salem like this from our members. We must continue, we need every member to be heard now.

Call, write and email Salem.

We need to stop HB 2004!
