Gerry Frank Endorses Betsy Johnson for Governor

Gerry is an Oregon treasure.

A fourth generation Oregonian, Gerry has worn many hats in his lifetime. A veteran who served in World War II, successful retailer with Meier & Frank, longtime Chief of Staff to Sen. Mark Hatfield, Salem Restauranteur and civic leader, State Fair chocolate cake contest judge, advocate for State Police…the list goes on and on.

Gerry’s support for my campaign means the world to me. Not only is he a close friend and role model, Oregon’s last independent Governor was Julius Meier, Gerry’s great uncle. Gerry is a Republican who has always put what’s best for Oregon ahead of party labels.

As Governor, I will do everything in my power to live up to the example of Gerry’s love of Oregon and selfless brand of leadership.

Read Gerry’s letter of endorsement below.

Dear Betsy:

As you know, my great uncle, Julius Meier, is the only independent candidate ever to be elected as Governor of Oregon. It is my great hope that this coming November, Oregonians will elect you as the second independent to serve as Governor of Oregon.

Oregon is the love of my life, as I know it is yours. I say with complete confidence that there is simply no one who is better equipped by intelligence, integrity, experience, and courage to lead our state and to bring our citizens together than you.

While I may not be able to hit the campaign trail with you, please know that you have my friendship, my admiration, and my total support.
