Beaverton, OR –  Today, the Tobias Read for Governor campaign announced the endorsement of former Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts. 


“Oregon needs a Governor with a statewide record of tackling tough issues, delivering results, and fighting for Oregonians living in every corner of this great state,” said Governor Barbara Roberts. “Tobias has shown he can bring people together, and he will continue his work to build economic opportunity and a better future for all. That’s why I’m supporting Tobias. Oregon needs his proven and steady leadership.”
