Job training is vital for rural Oregon, because a skilled workforce is necessary for robust economies, sound infrastructure, and atrractive communities. The Labor Commisioner directs the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), which is an instrumental agency for training and protecting the rights of rural workers.
All Oregon voters, even if not affiliated with a political party, may vote for the Labor Commissioner during the May 17 election. If one candidate received more that 50% of the vote, that candidate wins. Otherwise, the two top candidates will square off in the November election.
Voting (or not voing) has consequences, so please VOTE!
