Bud Pierce Statement on Scheduled Gubernatorial Debates

Salem, OR (August 25, 2016) – After Gov. Kate Brown initially missed the ONPA debate in July, and originally signaled she would like to limit the amount of debates she would participate in, we are happy the governor has accepted 5 debate invitations.

“I’m glad the Governor now feels ready to be in front of the people,” said Bud Pierce. “Throughout the entire campaign, I’ve told voters that I will attend any debate at any time and have accepted every single debate invitation I’ve received, since I believe debates are very important.”

Beyond these five debates, Bud has accepted three additional debate invitations and is anxiously awaiting the governor’s decision on these debates.

Bud Pierce, M.D, Ph.D. is a business owner and senior partner of Hematology/Oncology of Salem, one of the last physician owned practices on the West Coast. He announced his candidacy for governor on Sept.10, 2015, on the Republican ticket and won the party's nomination for Governor in the May primary.
