Bob Niemeyer for District 35 House of Representatives for the state of Oregon
Fellow Oregonians:

Abraham Lincoln concluded the Gettysburg Address with: “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The simple truth that our government is made from, by, and for the People is self-evident. However, the government does NOT “work” for the People, the government works for the people We elect and for those that are subsequently appointed. This is also simple truth.

The simple truth that the government “works” for those we elect is just as important as the Declaration of Independence saying: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The afore mentioned truths are why Honest, Free, and Fair elections are so important. We-The-People must again look at the those We elect as being the people that will be running the government “Of-By-and-For”

We constantly hear the phrase that our government has “jumped the track” or “we need to get back on track” to our future. That “Track” is Honest, Free, and Fair elections. The simple truth is that We-The-People must have Honest elections for the government to work for the People We elect. Oregon must return to in-person voting with photo ID. There is no other way.
