Sometimes a week feels like a month...this has been one of those weeks. When news of the fires surrounding us broke last week, my heart went out to everyone in the Santiam Canyon who lost their lives and livelihoods overnight, including my good friend and colleague and caucus leader Senator Fred Girod and his wife Lori. There are simply no words to soothe the loss we feel when those we know and love who have lost so much.
Within hours many of you who were in position to help began calling and emailing to help. This included several farmers and families with heavy equipment who were able to assist emergency providers in evacuating and doing all they could to move dirt and water to mitigate further risk, and so many of you who donated much needed supplies and volunteer time immediately.
