We’re about a month from Election Day in Oregon and around the country.
The political season is rather low key in Malheur County this year as there are no hot races in county or state offices locally. Ballots go out next week.
The attention will be on Ontario, where three people are running for mayor and five seeking the three seats on the Ontario City Council.
Count on the team at the Enterprise to bring you insightful coverage of these races and the candidates. And remember to mark your calendar for 6 p.m. Oct. 19, when the Enterprise teams up with the Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce for a forum featuring the Ontario candidates at Treasure Valley Community College.
Oddly, the seven people running for seats on the Nyssa City Council have been largely silent. None has returned the candidate questionnaire provided by the Enterprise to learn what they would do in public office. We’ll be reaching out to find out how candidates intend voters to learn about their positions.
Meantime, here’s some of the recent work done by your team at the Malheur Enterprise and our partners at Oregon Capital Chronicle.
Ontario 32, Burns 7
Adrian 22, Elgin 6
Nyssa 68, McLoughlin 6
Spray/Mitchell/Wheeler 50, Harper 6
