On March 30, Democratic candidates Bill Bradbury and former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, and Republican candidate Allen Alley, will be asked to lay out their solutions for the challenges that face Oregon's environment and natural resources.
The debate, hosted by Environment Oregon, Oregon Environmental Council, Oregon League of Conservation Voters, and the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club will address a range of topics including climate change and clean energy, toxics and public health, and the management of the state's natural resources and special places.
The candidates' performance and stated positions in the debate will not only serve to educate voters, but will also serve as one of the criteria in the endorsement decisions of two of the host organizations: The Oregon League of Conservation Voters and the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club.

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO ATTEND THE DEBATE,
There has been an amazing response to this event, and over 900 individuals have expressed an interest in attending Tuesday evening's debate. This level of interest presents a very welcome, but significant challenge.
At 5:30pm on the evening of the debate, we will open the doors for individuals who have pre-registered for the event.
At 5:45pm, we will begin to allow both registered and unregistered participants into the debate hall.
If and when the Smith Ballroom reaches its capacity of 650 occupants, we will then begin filling our overflow rooms, which will feature a live video feed of the debate.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
