DONATE TO THE OREGON FAMILIES FOR BOATING PAC

SUPPORT PRO-BOATING CANDIDATES TODAY

Our waterways have never been more regulated than they are now, which means making sure our voices are heard is more important than ever. We need more pro-boating candidates for office in the upcoming Oregon elections. Candidates who understand the value our boating community brings to our cities, counties and state. Candidates who will preserve waterway access and support our recreation boating community.

We need candidates who recognize that the Upper Willamette wake surf bans and weight restrictions go too far and help us roll them back. We need candidates who will reject, not support unnecessary proposals like the egregious noise petition currently being considered by the OSMB. We need candidates who will reject proposals being circulated to limit watersports on Lake Billy Chinook.

With this increasing overregulation, the boating community’s engagement in the political process is crucial. Simply put, we need your help supporting pro-boating candidates. That’s why Oregon Families for Boating has created its own Political Action Committee (PAC) to ensure our voices are heard in the state Capitol in the coming year. Join us in supporting candidates that will support boaters. Please donate today.

RECOMMENDED DONATION

To help preserve waterway access we recommend that boaters donate .5% of the current value of their boat.
