Oregon Legislature House District 25

October 21, 2014
The major party candidates in House District 25 are Bill Post (R) of Salem, and Charles Lee (D) of Keizer.
BILL POST’s website at http://www.billpost.us/ gives an interesting account of his life so far, and discusses several public issues.  A radio talk show host now, he has lived in Oregon since 1971 and worked in radio here since college days.  He is Operations Manager as well as talk show host at Willamette Broadcasting, Salem.
He replied to the Oregon Abigail Adams Voter Education Project questionnaire, including these questions on immigration:
15.  Do you support AUTOMATICALLY registering people to vote using DMV data?    No.
17.  Do you support requiring proof of eligibility when registering to vote?    Yes, always.
32.  Do you support mandating all Oregon employers to use the federal E-Verify system to determine the employee's work eligibility status?    Yes, always. 
He has given considerable airtime to immigration issues, and been welcoming to OFIR officers, often inviting them to speak on his program about bills at the state Legislature, in Congress, and related matters.
CHUCK LEE is President of Mountain West Career Technical Institute and previously was President for many years of the Blanchet Catholic School.  He describes his personal and career history on his website at http://www.votechucklee.com/.
Lee’s Issues section is rather brief and covers mainly education and job training issues.  He did not reply to the Oregon Abigail Adams Voter Education Project questionnaire.
He displays a long list of individuals and organizations supporting his campaign.  Among the organizations is the Service Employees International Union, whose locals 49 and 503 in Oregon have contributed $120,000 to the YES on Oregon Safe Roads campaign, the main group working to get official driver cards and i.d. for illegal aliens.
Since there seems to be no public indication of Mr. Lee’s views on immigration, it’s reasonable to expect he would follow Democratic Party leadership and support benefits for illegal aliens, amnesties, and lax to no enforcement of the immigration laws.
