The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Ashamed of The “R”?

Has anyone else noticed that the jumbo political signs popping up around Central Oregon for Republican candidates (Tim Knopp, Jason Conger, Gene Whisnant, etc.) fail to mention their political affiliation?

I would be naive to assume they are so ashamed of what the Republican party has become that they want to distance themselves from it.
More likely, knowing they have the votes of Republican loyalists, they are attempting to build name recognition with independent and uninformed voters in hopes of getting "I've heard that name" votes at election time.

More of the same from the party of George W. Bush.
