Letter to the Editor: Pushing forward on complaint

An open letter to Rep. Lori Chavez-Deremer:

I have called your office and written several letters. I’m still waiting for a response regarding my March 15 recording at your Open House. What ORS allows you to claim your taxpayer funded office is “private property”? Rep. Rick Lewis’ office says this isn’t a thing.

Did you lie when you wouldn’t answer on camera? Do you know a lawyer who knows what you’re talking about? Did you violate my first amendment rights? You saw me recording as I shook your hand.

My father was an Eisenhower Republican. The first Oregon politician I met was Sen. Wayne Morse (D) in 1967. They would both be appalled by your conduct.

Yours in democracy,
Sharon Ward
