If you have sound character, you will find that you generally do not worry about your reputation. Thomas Jefferson once said that a majority is one man with the courage of his convictions. If you have the courage that comes from the sincere conviction that you are a person of sound character, an honest, dependable, kind, and caring person, you will never have to worry about what others think of you. If you know in your own heart that you are a good and decent person, you can meet life’s challenges head-on and without fear of what others think. ~ Napoleon Hill
1.Travel Oregon’s Statewide Tourism Survey Results Online
During the 2016 legislative session, a bill was passed that increased funding for Oregon’s statewide tourism investment. Following the passage of this bill, Travel Oregon conducted an intensive online survey about the recently passed legislation, Travel Oregon’s programs, and tourism priorities across the state. In addition to the survey, they also hosted 21 Oregon Tourism Town Halls across the state. The results of the survey and the town hall meetings will be used as input for the Oregon Tourism Commission’s Strategic Plan process for 2017-2019.

4. Statement from Senator Ted Ferrioli on Oregon Department of Transportation Review
Salem, Ore. – Senator Ted Ferrioli (R-John Day) released the following statement in response to the Governor selecting John Craig to run the independent, third-party review of ODOT:
“An independent, third-party review is critical to examining past management decisions that have led to a multi-billion dollar financial challenge for the Oregon Department of Transportation. After a long wait, it is alarming that Governor Brown has selected a contractor who has extensive relationships with ODOT leaders and, just thirteen months ago, finished a 6-year contract managing ODOT’s bridge repair and replacement program. There can be little credibility for an “independent” analysis from someone who participated in the very decisions he will be asked to independently review and who may seek future ODOT contracts that could give him a personal financial stake in the outcome of his evaluation. To build the trust and bi-partisan support needed to create more efficiency and financial sustainability within ODOT, a truly independent assessment of the agency needs to be a real priority.”
