Here’s the email (but add a sentence or two to avoid ending up in their spam folder):
Citizens for Greater Idaho want your help in getting a hearing in a committee regarding the causes and solutions to the discontent in eastern and southern Oregon. It could be in this session or in the interim. It could be a committee on Revenue, or Prosperity, or Ways & Means.
Citizens for Greater Idaho demonstrated the discontent in eastern & southern Oregon by winning elections on ballot initiatives in 8 counties.
81% want the Oregon government to research this, including 79% of Democrats, according to a poll on SurveyUSA’s website. This top-rated pollster polled 1068 voters of northwestern Oregon.
