Bill Post for Dist. 25

To the Editor: We are writing to express our support of Bill Post for state representative in House District 25.  We know Bill to be a man of strong principles and unquestionable integrity. Even before he made the decision to run, he has always paid close attention to what’s going on in the Oregon state government and how it affects the citizens of this state.  Bill cares about Oregon and the people who live here and we believe he will do his best to keep the state government accountable to the people it represents. We believe he will make a difference and that he truly is the right choice for Oregon.  If you live in District 25 be sure to vote for Bill Post.  You won’t be disappointed.
