SEIU 503  Fund Oregon's Essential Services

Sign the petition: Governor Kate Brown should fund essential services!  

I Am Essential

Every two years the Governor releases a proposed budget, a kind of starting point for the Legislature that decides the final budget for the next two years. Next month the Governor has an opportunity to send a message to legislators that she stands with essential workers who have provided critical public services during the pandemic, wildfires and the economic recession. She can do this by fully fund our essential public services in her proposed budget. 

Please read our petition text, and sign below to show your support! 

Dear Governor Kate Brown, 

Essential public services from senior care and public health to food stamps and wildfire control have been at the center of our lives in 2020. You’ve called the essential workers who do these jobs heroes. Please back that up by fully funding these essential public services in your budget proposal.
