No, we are not going to report every endorsement handed out this election season. But the Oregon League of Conservation Voters carries weight in the Metro race, since many of those who follow the regional government are environmentally conscious. And, OLCV is clearly looking to raise its profile after the hiring last October of Jon Isaacs
, who formerly ran FuturePac —the Oregon House Democrats political arm— and who held a senior position in U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley's 2008 campaign.
Anyway, OLCV today endorsed
Bob Stacey over Rex Burkholder and Tom Hughes in the Metro Council President's race, which figures to be one of the more interesting
contests on the May ballot.
