By far the most interesting candidate in Oregon – AND THE WHOLE WORLD – is me!
The biggest lie I read so far is this one;
“2022 battleground election”
There is no “battleground” here. It’s a boil a spaghetti noodle contest, and whip at each other and the limp issue Be-in! No way will a reporter come into my home and interview me, because I’m way too interesting, and, will stir up lost writing skills. And, who is that woman?
“That’s my old flame and muse who filed fake stalking charges against me in the ongoing Culture Wars for Planet Earth!
Why doesn’t a reporter contact Rena Easton who inspired my Bond book ‘The Royal Janitor’ and get her side of the story. After all, I predicted coming world events.
FLASH! I just found some political history about me. I am a Highschool dropout. Tina Kotek is the candidate I referred to. She has replaced Alley Valkyrie who made a WANTED poster of me. There is no solution for the housing problem.
John Presco – John Presco describes himself as a “self-employed newspaperman.” He lives in Springfield and has no prior governmental experience, according to his candidate filing on the Oregon Secretary of State’s website. Presco said he previously worked as a manager at Upstairs Art Association. He attended University High School through grade 11.
This man’s name is John Gregory Presco, DOB 10/8/1946. He lives in Springfield, Oregon.
He frequents Eugene, especially the Whiteaker neighborhood, and regularly shows up at activist events. He is a stalker, a harasser, and an obsessed delusional sicko. He targeted a friend of mine and has been writing about her obsessively, and when I confronted him about his behavior, he decided to target me as well.
If you need a concrete example of his behavior and why I am posting this, his delusional writings can be found at https://rosamondpress.wordpress.com
If you see him in your neighborhood, on the street, or anywhere, call him out. Expose him. Make it known that you will not accept and tolerate someone who harasses and obsesses over young women in our community. This man is a very sick individual. Anyone who deliberately makes women feel unsafe should not be tolerated in this or any community.
2022 battleground election
Oregon’s last five governors have been Democrats, but John Horvick, senior vice president at DHM Research, said there is a chance for a Republican to win in 2022. “[Since 2002], the average margin of victories has only been 5 percentage points. There is a possibility for a Republican to win,” he said.
Pierce is an oncologist who ran as the Republican nominee in the 2016 special election to finish the term of former Gov. John Kitzhaber (D). Gov. Brown, who replaced Kitzhaber after he resigned in February 2015, defeated Pierce and three other candidates in that election. Willamette Week’s Rachel Monahan said, “Pierce has arguably the best name recognition among Republicans, thanks to his 2016 campaign. … He’s liked by Republicans who watched him carry the party banner at times when momentum was against them.”
Drazan represented District 39 in the Oregon House of Representatives from 2019 until she resigned on January 31, 2022. She was elected House Minority Leader in September 2019 and served in that position until November 30, 2021, when she stepped down. Williamette Week’s Monahan said, “Many speculate that if she wins the primary, she is most likely to receive significant cash from the Republican Governors Association.”
Pulliam is an insurance executive who has served as the mayor of Sandy, Oregon, since 2019. “Pulliam’s opposition to COVID shutdowns and his loyalty to Trump once made him the candidate to beat in the primary,” said Monahan.
All three candidates have highlighted education and public safety as critical issues for their campaigns. Pierce said he would set up a non-political oversight board to look after education in the state, and Drazan said she would make the superintendent of public instruction a statewide position that she argues would be accountable to voters. Pulliam said the state should empower parents and local boards. On public safety, Drazan said she would increase funding for state troopers, while Pulliam said he would triple the size of the Oregon State Police and temporarily deploy them in Portland. Pierce said he would work with federal, state, and local authorities to better public safety.
Drazan and Pierce have said there is a homelessness crisis in the state. To tackle it, Drazan said that she would address addiction, mental health, and affordability, which she said are the root causes of homelessness. Pierce said he would address those same issues by building more affordable housing and public shelters with services to tackle addiction and mental health.
On the campaign trail, Pulliam has also focused on economic growth, saying, “we’ve got to stand up for our local small business owners and ignite the economic sector in this state.”
Also running in the primary are Raymond Baldwin, Bridget Barton, Court Boice, David Burch, Reed Christensen, Jessica Gomez, Nick Hess, Tim McCloud, Kerry McQuisten, Brandon Merritt, John Presco, Amber Richardson, Bill Sizemore, Stefan Strek, Marc Thielman, Bob Tiernan.
This page focuses on Oregon’s Republican Party gubernatorial primary. For more in-depth information on Oregon’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and the general election, see the following pages:
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – As Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s time in office comes to an end, dozens of Democrats and Republicans are eager to seat themselves at the head of the state.
The deadline to file to run in the 2022 Oregon Primary Election passed on March 10. So far, 20 Republicans and 15 Democrats have officially filed and entered the race. This is far more candidates running for governor in a primary election than the state has seen going back as far as 1910.
In fact, between 1910 and 2018, Oregon has never had more than a dozen candidates run for the position in either party.
ADVERTISINGWho’s running for Oregon governor?
While Oregonians began electing state governors long before 1910, KOIN 6 News checked records of voter’s pamphlets the Oregon State Library has available online, which date back to 1910.
In 2022, Republicans would like to see the position return to their party. Many of the candidates are promising to allow parents more say when it comes to what their children are taught in school, stronger support for law enforcement and want to minimize taxes on small businesses.
Democratic candidates say they would like to expand access to healthcare, confront climate change and push for criminal justice reform.
Gov. Brown is term-limited and cannot run for re-election in 2022, leaving the position open for a replacement.
The Oregon Secretary of State’s Office said in 2018, at least 5% of eligible voters in the state were registered members of the Independent Party of Oregon, so the gubernatorial candidates for that party appeared on the primary election ballot. However, that is not the case in 2022. Independent Party of Oregon candidates make up less than 5% of voters, meaning the party does not meet the threshold required to maintain major party status and Independent candidates will not appear on the primary election ballot in 2022.
Here are the Republican and Democratic candidates voters can expect to see when they vote on May 17.

With the taking down of the statue of Albert Pike and petition to take down the statue of St. Louis, I declare American History – dead! Why Cervantes? Anything that looks white, or, smells white – is under attack! My history has been under attack since 1994. My discovery that the Rougemont Templars owned the Shroud of Turin was attacked by Sinclair Freemasons.
“The national reckoning over racism spilled into Golden Gate Park on Friday night, where demonstrators pointed their rage toward statues of St. Junipero Serra, President Ulysses S. Grant and “Star-Spangled Banner” lyricist Francis Scott Key — toppling the emblems of a nation’s history fraught with violence and ambiguity.”
Vladimir Putin is concerned that civil unrest in the U.S. may make President Donald Trump and Washington unpredictable in its dealings with Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
“Resolved, that in vindication of the prerogatives of this Grand Body as the knight templar supreme authority over the Orders of Masonic Knighthood in this jurisdiction, it is hereby ordered that no Knight Templar holding allegiance to the Grand Commandery of Missouri can be present in any of the bodies of the so-called Ancient and Accepted Scotch Rite and witness or assist in the conferring of any of their degrees upon any one who has not already received the Orders of Knighthood in a regularly constituted Commandery of Knights Templar.”
The resolution painted the Scottish Rite as a newcomer, an outsider, with a not-so subtle hint of its being irregular.
Pike fanned the flames in a retaliatory response of his own, indicating his official opinion that the American Knights Templar weren’t recognized by world Supreme Councils of the Scottish Rite.
Gouley responded that foreign opinion shouldn’t tarnish the high opinion held by American Masons toward their Grand Encampment of Knights Templar in America in general. …and the Grand Commandery, Knights Templar of Missouri, in particular.
Gouley was seen as a hornet buzzing around Pike’s head. Gauley had no method by which to punish Pike (aside from verbal tirades and statewide missives to Missouri Masons).
Pike, on the other hand, had an “Ace” up his sleeve. Pike used his national office of Sovereign Grand Commander and being a “Active 33°” to bring Scottish Rite charges against George Frank Gouley, 30°, for insubordination and for violating his Oath as a Knight Kadosh.
At the beginning of the Trial, Pike presided, but then retired and Mackey took to the Chair. Evidence was presented and arguments were heard. Gouley was eventually found guilty, and his Scottish Rite membership was suspended.
