If it’s news to you that there’s an election happening on May 19, you’re probably not alone. There are no big statewide races on the ballot, but there are a lot of important local issues for people to weigh in on around Oregon. We talk about a few of them, including:
- The Portland Public School board race between Bobbie Regan and Amy Kohnstamm
- A proposed ban on genetically modified crops in Benton County
- Public safety levies in Josephine and Curry counties
- A contested seat in the Salem-Keizer school district and another that one candidate hopes not to win
What’s on the ballot where you live?
