YCD PRESS RELEASE
Yamhill County Democrats Endorse Berschauer Recall
(McMinnville, OR) Yamhill County Democrats have voted to endorse the recall effort against Yamhill County Commissioner Lindsay Berschauer. Following the announcement of the recall in early August, the Yamhill County Democrats Executive Committee called a Special Meeting August 12 to consider the question. Representatives from Save Yamhill County, the organization behind the recall effort, made a presentation to the assembled Precinct Committeepersons, after which the vote was unanimous.
As with any endorsed candidate or campaign, Yamhill County Democrats will provide support to the Recall effort at their McMinnville office, 1107 NE Baker St, where office volunteers will be able to collect signatures, and through social media. The Yamhill Democrats will also activate other volunteer programs to make this recall a reality.
“I’ve never been involved with a recall before, but having had my own experience as an elected local nonpartisan official, it is clear that Lindsay Berschauer either has no awareness of or does not care about the boundaries of her authority. Along with her poor treatment of county staff, her actions expose the county to the risk of even more taxpayer dollars lost to legal battles — on top of the money already lost due to her actions. Yamhill County cannot afford to keep her in office.” PCP for Precinct 21, former Carlton City Councilmember
“This isn’t partisan, Yamhill County has had a conservative majority on the Board of Commissioners for decades. Lindsay Berschauer is the first person to hold the seat who has inspired so many people to call for a recall, and I voted to support the Recall because she’s unethical and bad for our County, not because she’s a Republican.” PCP for Precinct 13
“We have already had several people drop into the office asking if we have petitions to sign. I recommended that YCD endorse the Recall so that we can take advantage of the infrastructure we have built over the past year to support this effort.” Outreach Committee Chair, PCP for Precinct 9
