The Koch Brothers have announced plans to spend $1 billion in the 2016 election — and we can be sure that part of it will be spent in an attempt to bring their anti-worker agenda to Oregon.
We know that in September alone, Koch Industries gave Oregon’s Republican candidates and the pro-business Associated Oregon Industries PAC more than twice what any other PAC donated in September, and they’re likely only getting started. (It’s worth noting that AOI — which Koch Industries is a member of — opposed increasing the minimum wage, and opposes other pro-worker policies.)
The Koch Brothers think they can drown out workers’ voices by flooding Oregon with out-of-state money — but working Oregonians won’t let that happen.
That’s why we’ve started a petition to tell elected leaders who have taken Koch money: Don’t let the Kochs buy Oregon. Do the right thing, and stand up for Oregon’s working families!
