Thursday, October 11, 2018
Candidates for Senate District 3 will take questions at 7 tonight in Ashland. Democrat Jeff Golden and Republican Jessica Gomez are competing for the open southern Oregon seat.
Southern Oregon University and Jefferson Public Radio will host the town hall at the SOU Music Recital Hall. It is a free event, but a ticket will be required for entry.
OSBA Executive Director Jim Green said election season provides an important opportunity for education advocates to determine where candidates stand on the need to fund K-12 schools to the Quality Education Model.
“Our students need lawmakers who understand why we should be investing more in young people,” Green said.
OSBA members have consistently identified revenue reform and cost containment as their top legislative priorities.
