There is a terrible sickness in Oregon that needs a cure, and it has nothing to do with a flu variant that has been given a name. The pandemic that is smothering our State is officials jettisoning what it means to be an American in order to declare the supremacy of government and to claim unprecedented power.

It is time for Americans to rally around the Constitution and to use it as a Compass to guide the fight against the tyranny that is threatening our freedoms.

I will be asking Oregonians to have the courage to only obey mandates, orders, and laws that are in harmony with the principles of the Constitution, and to set up their hearts, cities, and counties as Constitutional Sanctuaries.

I have a fifteen point Charter of Liberty that will begin the restoration of Oregon back to its proper place of freedom and prosperity. Here are some of the points:

  1. Each County will return to a traditional, open, transparently honest Election system, with in person voting using voter ID on Election Day only.
  2. Ban imposition of mandated health measures or medical procedures.
  3. Move school funding directly to Parents.
  4. As unborn children have an inalienable right to life, pass law to restrict abortion.
  5. No surgeries or medications to feign a sex change on minors younger than 21. No biological males in female sports, restrooms, dressing rooms, or locker rooms.
  6. The 2nd Amendment is a Citizens’ Concealed Carry permit.

John Sweeney

Occupation: Cable Television Co-Host

Occupational Background: Management Consultant; Supervisor, Portland Parks; Captain, Oregon Army National Guard.

Educational Background: Kubasaki American High School; Portland Community College; U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

Prior Governmental Experience: Director, Multnomah Education Service District.


I want to improve Oregon’s education, clean Oregon’s air, help the cities and counties, help the homeless/houseless and stop the shootings.

Education: I want four special classes about nine weeks long for seventh graders. Why seventh graders? Because that’s when they become teenagers and is a TUFF TIME OF LIFE!

  1. Money Management: This will give them a good understanding of saving and investing.
  2. Civics: Every American needs to know how our government works. Maybe they will take over some day.
  3. LifePlan: What do I want to do in life? This class will explore fields of work.
  4. Law Related Education: The students will study the Court System. They have class time and a tour of the Court House. When I was a Director of the Multnomah Education Service District, the managers of the program said “IT WAS VERY EFFECTIVE.”

The schools must stress throughout the school experience that you must graduate from high school. If you don’t graduate from high school you may fail in life and become an economic cripple!

Clean Air: There are many big things in the works for clean air. We can aim is to use cleaner fuels. Many newer vehicles can use E-85 gas. I will run Oregon State vehicles on E-85 gas.

We need to help the cities and counties to help the homeless/homeless. The state can and will aid to solve this problem!

Stop the shootings: If the local police will not or can not stop the gun violence the State Police or National Guard will step in. It must end!

Elect JOHN SWEENEY for Governor. He will be working for you.

Climate change is Oregon’s biggest issue. It drives water shortages and wildfires, destroys homes and farms, and harms tourism. It threatens our prosperity whether we’re red, blue, rich, poor, urban or rural. Our Governor and Legislature have plenty to do, but legislation is slow while our own decisions can turn on a dime. We are all in this together, so we voters must drastically reduce our own fossil fuel use and insist that our elected representatives follow our lead at the state level. We can do this: Voter’s Pamphlet readers are community leaders!

Buying electric leaf blowers, home heating / air conditioning systems and hot water heaters means investing in our future. If you’re lucky and you have the means, upgrade to an all-electric HVAC, hot water heater or leaf-blower right away. Greenhouse gas emissions go up as income goes up, so it’s double the bang for the buck! If you don’t, replace a broken fossil fuel powered item with an electric one. Air travel is a huge source of emissions. Don’t cut out flying completely, just cut back. Vacation in Oregon!

Natural gas is 95% methane. Methane leaks all the way from the fracking well to our kitchen stoves. Methane traps 120 times as much heat as CO2 when it has just leaked into the atmosphere. It also breaks down over 12 years to be only 25 times as bad as CO2. The fastest way to decrease our atmosphere’s heat trapping effect right now is to eliminate as much natural gas as possible.

Ask your candidate what their carbon footprint is. Mine’s about 5 tons (carboncalculator.com) – no offsets. Tell your friends you are voting and donating based on who you think will do the most to fix climate change.

  • Bob will enact a long-term solution that will be implemented with accountability and measurable results.


  • Students are suffering and teachers need support.

Prior Governmental Experience: Lifelong Democratic Oregon Voter

If I were to be elected governor, I would put a plan into action that would alleviate the homelessness situation. My plan returns thousands of citizens back to living productive and healthy lives, simultaneously creating clean streets that we all can feel proud of.

A Plan to End Homelessness in Oregon

I end homelessness by building safe places, however I would do so out in the countryside to foster an environment removed from the availability of hard drugs. (Meth, Crack, Heroin, Fentanyl). I would create three 40-acre safe places in the country: two in the Willamette Valley and one in Deschutes County. Each center will provide a safe place that includes a cafeteria, drug rehabilitation, medical facilities, job training, and job placement for over 3,000 people each. They include:

  • Basic food provided for free, option to work for extras.
  • Private 8×8 shelters with heat/ac. Solar canopy provides electricity.
  • Guaranteed employment at minimum wage working at the center, being a street cleaner or tree planter.
  • Automatic savings plan for when ready to leave.

Affordable Housing and Jobs

My plan is to additionally develop affordable housing units in every major city. Selling these affordable units back to the citizens. A portion of these units will be available for ownership through a rent-to-own program. Work, pay rent, stay clean and earn your own home. Prosperity awaits!


It’s time we revolutionize the education system to raise expectations and raise results. Let’s use technology to empower our kids to achieve more.


Our climate is ideal for growing carbon-reducing trees. What if we become pioneers in carbon capture with innovative planting to create a new green energy future for Oregon.

Occupation: Founder, CEO

Like you, I’m heartbroken over the condition of our state. For years we were told that raising taxes would fix public education, improve our communities, and help the less fortunate. Despite the billions of dollars spent, schools are still struggling, businesses are leaving, and we have some of the most expensive housing in the nation. Meanwhile violent crime, drug addiction and unsheltered homelessness are destroying our urban centers.

I’m running for Governor because Oregon needs exceptional leadership to recover from decades of mismanagement and lack of accountability. In my lifetime I have gone from homeless teen to CEO of a world-class, microchip manufacturing company. All Oregonians should be given the opportunity for success.

Together we will:

  • Create an economic environment where small businesses can grow, housing is affordable, childcare is accessible, and families thrive. Protect our natural resource jobs.
  • Empower parents through school choice. Prioritize core academics and hands-on learning. Focus on education – not indoctrination.
  • Provide police and first responders with the funding and tools they need to keep our communities safe. Ensure criminals are prosecuted and stay behind bars.
  • Stop the humanitarian crises in our communities by moving our unsheltered homeless people off the streets and into life-changing treatment programs. Make our public places safe again.
  • Stop proposed freeway tolls on our local highways.
  • Protect your personal freedom and Second Amendment rights. No more mandates.

Join me, and let’s take the anger, frustration, and hopelessness we are feeling and turn it into something much more positive – building a great future for Oregon!

“Jessica thinks outside the box. She’ll empower Oregonians, not control and regulate us.”

Bev Clarno, Former Republican Secretary of State
