Betsy Johnson as governor is the best thing that could happen for Tillamook County. She understands our issues, needs and concerns, and she has proven herself to be a powerful ally for our community. She is personable and responsive and she gets things done. In her twenty years as our state senator, Betsy helped countless local individuals, families, farms, businesses and organizations. I don’t know how many people she went to bat for during COVID who couldn’t get their unemployment, but it was A LOT. Literally hundreds of Tillamook County residents have Betsy’s cell phone number because she gave it to us when we called her for help.

Imagine what it will mean for Tillamook County to have a governor who knows us and loves us and will take our calls. Just think about that for a minute. Betsy is the only candidate for governor who has deep, committed ties to our community.

Let's NOT. Betsy is a wolf in sheep's clothing. As the rich daughter of Industry big wigs she has spent her entire career playing the slimy game of politics to enrich herself and her peers while parading as "one of us".

As a citizen of rural Tillamook county I have needed to submit comments on multiple topics that have crossed Betsy's desk, and I have never had her be accountable or present for any of these issues. But don't doubt that Betsy will show up if her mega-donar handlers (the NRA and Big Timber) tell her to!

I am disappointed in Mary Faith Bell for her support of Betsy and will heavily reconsider my vote for Mary Faith Bell in the future (have voted for MFB twice in the past). [thumbdown]

If you need a reminder of exactly the kind of "rules for thee, but not for me" mentality Betsy truly has, here's an example:
