Sean Cruz on Measure 49 - Measure 37: "A broad protective policy should be declared and maintained...."


I simply cannot improve on the phrase I happened upon during the last (2007) Legislative Session, while prowling around the Capitol:


“In the administration of this God-given trust,
a broad protective policy should be declared and maintained.

"No local selfish interest should be permitted,
through politics or otherwise,
to destroy or even impair this great birthright of our People.”

---Governor Tom McCall (caption of McCall portrait
located in Oregon State Capitol near House Chamber,
referencing the Beach Bill)


There it is: Oregon’s beaches, agricultural and resource lands, watersheds, wilderness, quality of life, opportunities for adventure, the salmon, the salmon….


One more time, for clarity:


“In the administration of this God-given trust, a broad protective policy should be declared and maintained.

"No local selfish interest should be permitted, through politics or otherwise, to destroy or even impair this great birthright of our People.”

I’m supporting Measure 49.
