Sam is at the helm of
Local Stewardship, Energy Independence
& Regional Resilience for the Oregon Coast.
STATEMENT OF INTENT
Corrupt Politicians that serve their corporate masters have caused far too many people to suffer from poverty and economic disadvantage. We are in challenging times, yet we have the resources and we have the know how to make our communities vibrant and thrive. No longer can we allow our communities and our resources to be exploited for corparate gains. Together, we must root out the greed in our government. We must elect honest leadership in order to succeed as "We the People". With your support, I will work tirelessly to bring new family wage jobs in the lucrative Renewable Energy sector, building the Blue Economy while simultaneously boosting ALL other EXISTING local commerce without compromising the environment. As a community, we can and will achieve long-term social and economic viability while claiming Energy Independence for Oregon's Coast. I will serve coastal communities, navigating the political differences in Oregon, building upon our common threads to lead us to a brighter future. Click OCEAN (Oregon Coast Energy Alliance Network) to learn how we are redefining large scale energy project protocol and working towards Energy Independence for the Pacific Northwest. We are building the foundation for new Oregon Trades with OCATEC (Oregon Coast Artisan and Trades Collective). Advanced Technology and Micro-Grid solutions are on the horizon!
We are ready. We are resilient. We are the Oregon Coast.
5/1 MAY DAY 2020
Listened in on the very first Coastal Corral this morning, a legislative meet up, featuring Sen. Jeff Merkley, Sen. Ron Wyden, Sen. Betsy Johnson, Arnie Roblan and many more... the bottom line is that the economy is basically screwed, therefore so is the tax base. The coastal communities will be hit the hardest and they know that we'll need the most support because we rely on tourism for restaurant, hotel, retail, gas tax, etc... the budgets are all going to tank. It's brutal. We know this. It is prime time to restructure our economy. We must become more self-reliant and rethink the way we do everything. In a land filled with such abundance in natural resources we are fortunate to live in rural Oregon. Let us be wise. The change is real. Transition is upon us. Buckle up folks. Plant your gardens. Wyden mentioned the importance of Food Reserves filled with frozen fish! I support that notion fully. We can put our local small fisheries to work with purpose and feed our coastal regions and maintain a consistent price for the catch. We must plan ahead to feed our families. We must maintain independence in one of the most beautiful locations imaginable, putting our energy into Regional Resilience. Stay calm. Reach out if you need assistance.
Think global, act local. Stay safe. Be kind. Together, we are strong.
