After checking the State of Oregon's online system this morning, Kyle and Kahl are the only candidates who have filed for run for HD 49. No Republicans have filed yet.
Councilor Kyle and I serve together on the Troutdale City Council. I've worked with her on other local projects such as Troutdale's Summerfest. But hey, she's a Democrat and I'm a Republican. I'm not making a decision on who to support in this race quite yet.
What do I know about Nick Kahl? Nothing, except for what he's posted on his campaign web site. He's attending Lewis & Clark law school. He's a former staff assistant to Multnomah County Commissioner Jeff Cogen.
Regardless of political party, I want to know each candidate's position on the following issues:
Where do you stand on Measure 37/49?
What will you do to help fight the tremendous gang problem in House District 49?
What is your position on tax or fee increases to fund affordable housing?
Would you support the reinstatement of funding for Oregon’s “Big Look” committee for land use regulation reform?
Do you support SB 400’s modification of the criteria for mandatory public safety bargaining on matters relating to staffing levels and safety issues?
Do you support HB2891’s “card check” provisions, or do you support the traditional secret ballot for union elections?
Regarding HJR 15, to you support the repeal of the double majority requirement?
