As the ethical compass of our state, Oregon needs a Secretary of State who will stand up and do the right thing. Representative Val Hoyle has proven to be that leader.

While House Majority Leader, Val passed the most progressive legislative agenda in recent Oregon history while maintaining strong relationships across party lines. Her progressive values and collaborative leadership style is exactly what the Secretary of State’s office needs to keep Oregon moving forward.

As Secretary of State, Val will fight to:

Break down barriers to the ballot

As the Chief Elections Officer, the Secretary of State is responsible for maximizing voter participation. Val is the strongest candidate to engage voters to the process and will fight to make sure every voice is heard and every vote is counted.

* Provide pre-paid postage for ballots

* Introduce same-day voter registration

* Have ballots and voting information in different languages

Get big money out of politics

Oregon is one of the only states without any campaign finance limits, making for some of the most expensive campaigns in the nation. Val is committed reducing the influence of money in campaigns and empowering the voices of everyday Oregonians.

*Reform Oregon’s campaign finance law

* Institute publically financed election

* Require campaigns and candidate to list their top donors

Increase government accountability and transparency

Val knows nothing is more important than making sure the people of Oregon have a government they can trust. That’s why Val is committed to passing new laws to increase accountability and transparency in state offices and agencies. Val will:

* Use the audit function to streamline government while protecting critical services

* Use the audit function to ensure businesses contracting with the state are following the rules




Stand with Val

Together we will fight to reduce barriers to voting, improve government transparency and accountability, and continue to fight for small businesses and working people.

It has been a great honor to represent the people in West Eugene and Junction City for the past 7 years in the Oregon House. I have never loved a job more and am incredibly happy to be handing over the reins to such a strong, intelligent and competent woman as Julie Fahey, our new State Representative.

I will continue fighting for affordable housing and adequate mental health care for those who need it, including ensuring that the Junction City Psychiatric Hospital remains open and able to serve those people who need a hospital level of psychiatric care. I will use this page as opposed to my personal facebook page to highlight political issues.

In my capacity as a board member of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, Square One Villages and The Street Trust (formerly the Bicycle Transportation Alliance) I will work to advocate for women’s reproductive health access, affordable housing and safe bicycle and pedestrian transportation options. I will continue to work with the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics at the University of Oregon to brings scholars and activists to Oregon to carry on the Wayne Morse tradition of intellectual independence and courageous principled leadership. I will be spending time supporting the local organizations that make such a difference locally, specifically the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Mom’s Demand Action, Sponsors Inc (providing post prison re-entry mentorship, housing and employment opportunities), Occupy Medical and finally, I will now have time to be more involved in local community projects through the Eugene Airport Rotary.

The bottom line is that I will continue to be engaged and have appreciated the support I have had from my constituents. I am proud to have been able to have taken strong stands that while not always popular, made a difference in the lives of the people in Lane County and the state of Oregon. ... See MoreSee Less
