It's now official:

Oregon State Senator Alan Bates (D-Ashland) is facing a recall as a result of his attempts to attack mining and property rights in defiance of local, state and federal laws.

The recall is being spearheaded by Rick Barclay of Ruch, Oregon, a long time timber worker and local miner, who charges that Bates has violated his oath of office and has broken state and federal laws for political purposes.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Senator Alan Bates to Face Recall

According to the complaint, Bates violated his oath of office.

May 29th, 2013

Ruch, OR – On the heels of the Galice Mining District suing him in federal court, Senator Alan Bates (D-Ashland) is again under fire.

Rick Barclay, a long time timber worker and gold miner from Ruch, Oregon has received the go ahead from the Secretary of the State of Oregon to launch proceedings to recall Bates from his public office.

“Bates is treading on the law of the land,” Barclay remarked. “We live in a Constitutional Republic where the rule of law is to reign. Myself and others want to see this restored and Alan Bates seems to have very little regard for the law, property rights, local prosperity and the constitutions of this state and nation. It's my opinion that he is out of touch with the common man and is totally unfit to lead.”

Barclay alleges that recent legislation introduced by Bates attacks property and other rights that are supposed to be protected by local, state and federal laws.

The complaint states that Bates is guilty of breach of his oath of office; sponsoring job killing legislation; attacking property rights; creating a civil liability for the State of Oregon, its employees and its people; creating legislation that violates the Oregon Admission Act, the Supremacy Clause, the Property Clause and the Contract Clause of the United States Constitution, as well as the Oregon State Constitution and the 5th and 8th Amendments. The complaint also states that Bates is attempting to criminalize federally protected rights, thereby creating possible civil and criminal liabilities for state employees.

Barclay says that he believes that his recall effort has a high likelihood of resulting in Bates losing his office in Senate District 3 and his efforts have already attracted the support of Galice Mining District, Citizens for Transparent Government and many others within the local mining, timber and farming industries, as well as others who have their own beef with Senator Bates over medical insurance and anti-gun legislation.

Petitions to recall Alan Bates may be signed only by registered voters in Oregon Senate District 3, which includes Ashland, Phoenix, Talent, Medford, Jacksonville and other portions of Southern Jackson County. Petitions are available direct from Barclay and may also be signed at Black Cat Mining in Medford and at Armadillo Mining Shop in Grants Pass.

For more info, contact Rick Barclay at 541-899-7155
