Marilyn Briggs: Golden for State Senate

Mail Tribune | April 10

Democrats have an imperative responsibility to choose the most electable candidates for the November elections. Here, that would be Jeff Golden for State Senate, District 3 (Medford, Ashland, Phoenix, Talent, Jacksonville and the Applegate.) Only Golden has the credentials to win in November.

In spite of the Republicans’ formidable campaign money, Golden chose the moral high ground, pledging not to accept corporate funding. His diverse resume is unique, including Harvard, Stanford, river guide, farmer and professional civic communicator. For decades he has been solidly entrenched in Southern Oregon’s public affairs, even serving as a Jackson County commissioner. He is most recognized as the creator/moderator of successful radio and television programming, NPR’s “The Jefferson Exchange” and TV’s “Immense Possibilities.” Both formats involved citizen participation in a wide range of community issues. Imagine the immense possibilities of voting for Golden, experienced sense and sensibility!
