In the recent Legislative session Read did not support the Treasury Transparency bill that would have required his department to disclose investments in fossil fuels, a first step in getting to divestment, which he has always resisted in the past. The bill died as a result. The Treasury under his watch is still investing millions of our dollars in companies that are destroying the livability of the planet. That's why I'm voting for Kotek, who has worked to pass all the major climate actions the Legislature has taken recently.

I’m still undecided but also leaning toward Kotek. Some of Read’s early Facebook ads attacking Kotek and blaming her for every Oregon problem really turned me off. For instance, he blamed her for Intel choosing Ohio instead of Oregon for their huge new chip plant, assuming that any huge manufacturing plant is always a plus, even if we have to compete with huge tax breaks and land use waivers. He also wondered how through all her years as speaker she was not able to solve the homelessness problem.
