Stop Kate Brown from turning her back on Oregon's mental health crisis!

This petition had 4,117 supporters

Kate Brown is proposing shutting down the Junction City Mental Health Hospital that she spent $130 million dollars building just 18 short months ago; not to mention displacing the 422 employees that work there.  Her proposed budget increases school funding 9% to just over $8 billion dollars while shutting down a greatly needed facility that will only save $34.5 million dollars a year.   Did I mention that she is also proposing to shut down a youth offenders facility in Warrenton and trim state funding to Oregon's Community Care organizations ?  Where are your priorities Kate?  She wants to raise taxes by $900 million, and raise reserves to over $1 billion which will be the biggest stock pile in the states history.  Even without Kate's tax increases, general fund revenues are projected to be 8.3% higher ($19.45 billion) in the 2017-19 than in the current two-year budget.  Kate is turning her back on the mental health crisis that Oregon is faced with.  Stand together and stop her madness!
