Scott Rohter cites “hostile and defamatory” comments
VIDA: Both candidates for Oregon’s District 4 Senate seat didn’t attend Sunday’s Candidates Forum at the Vida McKenzie Community Center. Incumbent Floyd Prozanski declined, reported he had previously committed to an event in Douglas County. Challenger Scott Rohter sent a note saying he had planned to be there until he came to doubt the meeting would be conducted in an “orderly and civil manner.”
Other candidates, including East Lane Commissioner rivals Heather Buch and Gary Williams, as well as House District 7 opponents Cedric Hayden and Christy Inskip, did attend the event, sponsored by the McKenzie Community Development Corporation (MCDC).
