In Oregon, elections are supervised by County Clerks. It is critically important for our democratic process that our Clerks are competent and politically neutral.

In the May 20 primary, Sherry Hall is running for re-election as Clackamas County Clerk. During her 12-year tenure, her office has made numerous mistakes and has sometimes shown a bias in favor of Republicans.

This year, she is facing two highly qualified opponents, David Robinson  and Mark Meek.

Robinson is a Naval officer who has supervised several large complex projects. In the Southern California/San Diego area, he oversaw a workforce of more than 250 civil servants and managed a budget of more than $250 million. Most recently David played a key role in our Nation’s humanitarian assistance to the people of the Philippines following the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. David has worked as a department director at the City of Hillsboro, and has also founded and run consulting, engineering, and tech businesses. In addition to his engineering degrees, David has an MBA from Willamette University and completed the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School’s Advanced Management Program and the Advanced Program in Logistics and Technology.

Meek is a local Realtor and small business owner. He is on the county planning commission, president of his neighborhood association, serves on committees for the Oregon Association of Realtors and Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors, and is active in the North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce. Part of Mark’s eight years of service in the United States Air Force found him responsible for his unit’s records, publications, performance reports, personnel files, among other duties. His work in that exacting role led to serving as Squadron Personnel Director.

We recommend that you vote for either David Robinson or Mark Meek for County Clerk.
