Laura with family and friends on primary election night at The Grand Hotel, Salem.

So what an exciting week – Tuesday was a huge success for our community from the nomination of Bud Pierce as the Republican candidate for Governor to the election of Chuck Bennett as the new Mayor of the City of Salem. And of course I am very pleased to announce that I am the official Republican Candidate for State Representative House District 20. This absolutely could not have been done without you. Thank you so much for your continued support, encouragement and willingness to step up to the plate with me. This experience is demonstrating how many amazing people I have in my life. Old friends, and new have shown their commitment to not only me, but to our state, thank you!

I could not be more pleased with how my campaign has been progressing. We have reached our first goal – executing a primary with all the parts and pieces of a full general election campaign. Now we must focus on the big prize – winning in November. As I think about all the success we have had these last several months – I am so encouraged as to what we will accomplish now through November.

We have a huge contest ahead of us friends, a very winnable contest, but not without an excellent plan and a hard working team. I am asking that you continue the course with me. To win, we can not tire of doing what is right. We must maintain our course and keep chipping away at the one party domination in our government.

This seat I seek – House District 20 – is one of the top targeted seats in the state of Oregon. I need more walkers, more sign locations, more people to make phone calls, host coffees, more financial supporters, and more prayer warriors. With this contest ahead of me, it reminds me of when I was on Survivor and things seems so incredibly hard, so impossible and so alone. The only difference this time is I do not feel alone, and it is NOT impossible. It will be hard though, so again, I am boldly asking that you stay the course, continue to walk, call, give and pray. If you have not yet volunteered to help please go to “Join Me” at the top of this page and complete the form. There is no role too small or too big…. I NEED EVERYONE! God has a plan for me, you and our state and together we can see it unfold.

Have a blessed weekend my friends. I will continue to bask in the afterglow of the primary win as I am refreshed, refined and ready for battle!

Keeping the Faith,

Laura Signature Black Best
