Betsy Johnson’s statement on Oregon Court of Appeals decision on Linn County forestry lawsuit

“Rural Oregonians have suffered the consequences of decisions made by big cities for decades.

I’m not here to discuss the technical, legal arguments, but I do know I stand with the jurors who spoke clearly that timber jobs and towns have been abandoned and we’ve seen the negative impacts of these decisions everywhere from lost school dollars to decreased funding for rural sheriffs’ offices. This victory is being interpreted as a victory for the state.

There should never be a victory for the state that comes at the expense of its people. As governor, I won’t take rural Oregon or job creators for granted.”

– Betsy Johnson.
