The people deserve transparency
Republicans in Oregon are speaking up about manipulative tactics that are being used by the state's Governor Kate Brown and the Oregon Health Authority in regards to releasing information about coronavirus data.
Oregon House Republican Leader Christine Drazan (R-Canby) has issued a statement in response to the Oregon Health Authority’s decision to limit the release of critical COVID-19 information.
“Yesterday, the Oregon Health Authority announced suddenly that the agency would no
longer publicize key information related to COVID-19 deaths in Oregon. This
information has been released daily for months without incident and is critical to
allowing the public to understand how and who the virus is impacting.
“Oregonians have been asked to sacrifice so much in so many ways, they deserve access
to all relevant available information.
“The decision to suspend access to key information calls into question the Governor’s
commitment to transparency and accountability at a time when state-level decisions
have made Oregon a national outlier by ignoring CDC guidelines and dismissing a
science-based approach to vaccine distribution. In order to maintain trust and preserve
transparency, Governor Brown and OHA must reverse yesterday’s decision and commit
to providing clear, consistent and timely data in all categories moving forward."
