Oregonians for a Better Government are citizens who live in Greg Walden's district who want to place radio ads exposing Greg Walden's lies about his disastrous health care bill, The American Health Care Act. 

Greg Walden was the co-sponsor and author of The American Health Care Act legislation that would cause 23 million Americans to lose their healthcare insurance (per the CBO), including 64,300 Oregonians in our district by 2026. He repeatedly lies about the devastating effects of this bill, especially on older Americans, families and veterans, and those of us with pre-existing conditions.

We want to run radio ads in all parts of Walden’s district, particularly Jackson, Josephine, Deschutes, Umatilla, Hood River and Klamath counties. The 60 second radio ads will expose the lies Walden tells about the devastation his healthcare bill will cause, including the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the 1%.

For a $10,000 budget, we can reach 27,000 listeners with an estimate of being heard by each listener 22 times each. The spot will be aired 1 time each hour for 4 weeks, with the station throwing in the hours of midnight to 6am for free. The average cost per spot is $14.88.

From this initial deployment, we’ll learn from placing advertisements with the radio stations. We hope to expand this effort after this initial campaign to TV advertisements and are using this first deployment to test messaging. 

The math is simple. By donating $20 or whatever you can, you can help us spread the truth about the effects of Walden's legislation. 

Our goal is $10,000 to fund radio ads for 4 weeks. Can we count on you for your support?

Our radio spots are hitting the airwaves this week!

If you are in the Medford area, tune into KLDZ Classic Hits 103.5 or KRWQ Country 100.3. In Bend, you’ll hear us on KSJJ Country 102.9 and The MIX 100.7. 

Thanks to your generous support, this message will air about 300 times in the next three weeks and reach over 25,000 listeners.

And this is only the beginning! 

Last weekend, we attended the Oregon Summit, a Democratic party conference, and handed out flyers detailing our mission. Greg Walden is a disaster for Oregon District 2, and we will be working tirelessly to defeat him in 2018.

Our next steps:

  • We are going to continue raising money for more radio ads.
  • Using seed money from a generous donor, we will be running an initial social media campaign, focused on targeting swing voters in District 2. 
  • Once we’ve got our feet wet with social media, we’ll be focused on building a larger online campaign to defeat Walden.

What you can do to help:

Our radio ad campaign is still open. You can donate again and suggest your friends do the same:

WE DID IT, with your help!

WE DID IT!

Thanks to you, Oregonians for Better Government has met its first fundraising milestone!

We raised over $10,000 to fund radio ads that tell the truth about Greg Walden. He has been representing Oregon Congressional District 2 for a long time, and has become entrenched in the DC Swamp rather than attending to the needs of Oregonians. His heartless health care proposals would devastate Oregon families, and his claims to the contrary are based on pure fabrication.

With your help, Oregonians for Better Government will counter Walden’s misleading messages and attempt to connect with our neighbors over our shared progressive values and policies in our region.

With this first round of funding, we will be running ads on radio stations in Central and Eastern Oregon. Our plan is to be on the air by the end of October. Our next steps are to confirm our media buy, finalize a website landing page, and record our message to be run by the stations.

As soon as the ads go live, we’ll send you shareable links. Together we can call out Walden on his lies, especially about health care. Taking back Oregon Congressional District 2 starts right now. Thanks for being part of our team!

Sincerely,

The Progressive Folks at Oregonians for Better Government

ONE-THIRD OF THE WAY THERE!

THANK YOU!! What a terrific response from those who want to hold Greg Walden accountable.  In  less than 3  weeks,  we raised more than $4,000.  This means we are more than one-third of the way to our target of raising $10,000!

We caught a break in Senate last night with the rejection of #trumpcare.  This will not be the end of the GOP attempts to deprive health care to millions of Americans, but we feel a little relief today.

When the Senate passes the ball back to the House, Walden will be part of the process that will reconcile the Senate and House versions.  He has already demonstrated his willingness to cause 23 million Americans to lose their health care, with his first draft of the American Health Care Act.

Please help us hold Walden accountable and tie his own bill to our district, and the devastation this will cause (both in terms of reduction of services AND jobs).  All voters in our Second Congressional District need to be aware of what’s in these bills and they aren’t currently getting that truth through their media sources.  

If you can donate again, please do so. We’re hoping to be able to place these ads in August, and need to have the funds ready to place our advertising reservation.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. We live to fight another day.

In solidarity, 

Oregonians for Better Government
