Oregon Democrat Tobias Read Announces Run for Governor
Believes Covid vaccines should be required for kids to go to school

Via a video posted on YouTube, Democrat Tobias Read has announced that he will be running for the position of Oregon's next Governor in the 2022 election.

He is the second high-profile Oregon Democrat to do so, alongside Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland). Tobais Read is the current Treasurer of the State of Oregon. He was elected to that position in 2016, following 5 years of being in the House Legislature.

In the announcement video, Read expresses his worries over not being allowed to inject his children with COVID-19 vaccine and tells viewers that he would like to implement even more vaccine mandates on employees and customers of businesses in Oregon if he is elected.

"I'm tired of adults who think their version of freedom allows them to endanger children. No one has the right to put our kids and thousands of others at risk." To date, only 504 children 19 and younger have been hospitalized because of COVID-19, according to the Oregon Health Authority. Read says. "COVID-19 vaccines should be required for all children to go to school"

He then explains how, as Oregon State Treasurer, he has been responsible for growing Oregon's economy. This may seem to be a questionable accomplishment to many observers, as many businesses in the state have suffered recently, and the sector that has seen the most growth is in government workers. Economic critics don't consider this to be the wisest way to grow a state's economy.

Read claims in the video that he helped to implement full day kindergarten for Oregon children, and that he wants universal Pre-K education administered to Oregon children. He says he would like to see the Oregon school year extended, a move that many parents in Oregon might find disruptive and who simply want to see the schools function normally again, and with some accountability.

Is the promise of extending the school year just an indication that he would like to see unionized teachers get paid more to do less?

"We have to stop lurching from one crisis to the next, and invest in our future." says Read. Governmental critics would point out that invest means to spend the people's money. He intends to "fight climate change" with that public money. But he claims this would only be after getting the Covid virus under control, and that regular testing and masking are not enough.
