Bill Runs A Consumer Oriented Operation

I heartily endorse Bill Burgess for Marion County Clerk!

I have known Bill since he was on the Salem City Council in the 1990’s.  He was an excellent city councilor: thoughtful and knowledgeable.

I was elated when he became Marion County Clerk!  He runs a smooth, consumer oriented operation!  For instance, when you call the elections section, a live person answers!  And the live person knows the answers to my questions!  They will even email me the information upon request. 

Also, when I went to his office to get my passport, the staff made the procedure easy and not stressful at all.  It arrived in a timely manner.

When I had to get a copy of a deed from Bill’s Licensing and Recording Division, I found the documents immediately.  After Covid restrictions were in place, all I had to do was call to request the documents. They were emailed to me the same day for a reasonable fee.

I have lived through many elections since Bill Burgess was elected as County Clerk in 2005.  I love his drive up ballot collection operation on Court Street; fun and easy!  Bill is also ensuring Marion County voters who lost their homes in the recent fires will have access to ballots.

Bill has always made sure that Marion County voters have the luxury of having a Voter Pamphlet.  Not all Oregon counties have them.  The Voter Pamphlet allows us to be informed about each item on the ballot. 

Because of Bill Burgess, voters in Marion County will in spite of Covid, continue to have drop boxes for our ballots, voter pamphlets, an easy way to track our ballots, and trained staff who answer the phones if we have questions.

I wholeheartedly support Bill’s re-election and hope you do, too!

Every Vote Gets Counted

We live in a time when our President is trying to hurt the Post Office while also disparaging mail-in-voting. Shame on him!

I’ve had the privilege of watching the vote-counting process at Marion County Elections for several years.  I’ve seen first-hand how both democrats and republicans, under the leadership of Bill Burgess, have worked together to ensure that every vote gets counted.  I can’t imagine that anyone could lead the process any better than Bill Burgess.

America’s Transformation

2020 is a must-win moment for our movement. That’s why Our Revolution Oregon members are GETTING OUT THE VOTE to defeat Trump, elect more progressives to Congress, build a down ballot bench, and organize a movement powerful enough to transform America.

We Want Honest People in Government

We want to go on record as strongly endorsing Bill Burgess for the office of Marion County Clerk. Bill has worked effectively in the County Clerk’s office for fifteen years, during which time the county population has increased by more than 16%. He brings excellent credentials to this position, with a Master of Public Administration from Lewis and Clark College and many years’ experience in public service.

The clerk’s duties require office administration; maintaining records and archives; responding to public records requests; scheduling elections; licensing and recording; and, administering the Board of Property Tax Appeals.  Bill understands the importance of keeping good records and of dealing congenially with the public. He is honest, reliable, and willing to work the long hours needed for the position. We believe Bill Burgess is the person best qualified to be our County Clerk.

In our experience of working with Bill in city government, we have found him totally trustworthy and incorruptible.

Bill’s well-known commitment to accountability in government will promote an atmosphere of openness in the area of government.  If you want to see honest people in government, join us in supporting Bill Burgess for Marion County Clerk on November 3rd.

Sincerely, 

Ingrid Stromberg and Wayne Harris, Salem Oregon
