"Let's Talk" about the Oregon Governor's Race

The 2022 Oregon governor's race promises to be one of the most important in recent Oregon history with several high-profile candidates and a state reeling from the pandemic and political divides.

A group of news organizations and nonprofits in Oregon have teamed up to hear what voters want to know about their candidates for governor in 2022, by hosting a series of virtual listening sessions called "Let's Talk."

Voters will join others within their region via Zoom to share what information they want to know about the candidates ¬– and what they don't want to hear. The intent is to hear from a range of Oregonians in 90-minute virtual sessions to understand their views and goals about the race, in order for organizations to provide relevant information in the coming months that serves the interests and needs of Oregonians, rather than coverage focusing on the candidates and their campaigns.
