Gene Hallman: The Qualified Choice for All of Oregon
Our highest court needs qualified justices who understand Oregon and its people. It's no place for politicians. Gene is the only candidate with 30 years of distinguished, real-world courtroom experience representing working people and small businesses in hundreds of cases. Gene would be the first justice elected outside the Willamette Valley in nearly two decades.
"In my 45 years as a member of the Oregon State Bar, I can count on the fingers of one hand those who had the credentials and qualifications for service on the Oregon Supreme Court that Gene possesses. In addition to that, he is an outstanding, caring human being, possessed of enormous common sense."
