The rally will start in Vogel Plaza at 6pm to march to the KOBI-TV Studio where the debate will begin at 7pm. “Candidates wanting to represent southern Oregon need to be accountable to the thousands of people impacted by this project, not the special-corporate interests promoting it,” said Hannah Sohl, Executive Director of Rogue Climate, a Medford-based community organization. “The state of Oregon has the authority to deny critical permits and easements for the Jordan Cove project that would shut this proposal down. What our communities need is a faster transition to clean energy that creates jobs, lowers energy rates, and reduces climate pollution, not steps that take us backwards, like Jordan Cove.”read more
