Albert Lee for Congress 2020

Tonight, I am endorsing Albert Lee for US Congress 3rd District. Essentially, I am supporting him for the same reason I supported JoAnn Hardesty for City Council. (I wish I had some of the money back raised to help support her.} But like she implied in her run for office, these old white guys need to gather their things, go home and take a long nap. Seriously, I struggled with the notion of supporting Earl Blumenauer but in truth I could not find one thing through his long history of representing the 3rd district that he’s done specifically for black people. Black people don’t ride a lot of bicycles, and things under his administration hasn’t gotten better for black people. Black people are still registering goose eggs (0s) in terms of participation on federal contracts, we still have a huge education achievement gap, our home ownership rates are the worse ever, and we still have the highest incarceration rates. Need I say more?

On the other hand Albert Lee is a up and coming young black man who has principles and talent. He has a good campaign agenda and he has courage as exhibited by him standing up to the bullying tactics of E.D. Mondaine at the last NAACP general membership meeting. Here’s what he said in his last correspondence in our effort to check E.D.

“Please post on all my social media and provide links to Rosa Colquitt and James Posey, cc’d here so that they may link and re-post. Thank you.

To all who plan on attending tomorrow’s Portland NAACP Gala, I ask that you reconsider. At the last monthly meeting of the NAACP, I asked openly for the president to step down for improper leadership by fiat, questionable & murky accounting, and general incompetence. 

At the end of the meeting, the president openly threatened me with physical violence. In light of what I have witnessed, I have no confidence that funds raised from this event will be appropriately handled or benefit the community. Unlike our newest member @repblumenauer, I have zero confidence in the current leadership of this organization and will not be attending the event.

Sincerely,

Albert Lee”
