Michael Cross Is The Attorney General That Will Hold Our Executive Branch In Check

 " Governor Kate Brown is acting more like a tyrant than an elected official carrying out the wishes of Oregonians.

As your next State Attorney General I take issue with any elected official regardless of political party, that circumvents the will of the people by using executive privilege instead of a vote by all Oregonians.

Please join me in my campaign to become your next State Attorney General.

Let's get back to the Oregon I knew and loved as a child in the 1970's, that we all miss dearly. "
