The Oregonian, July 6, 1998
"... We think that Monroe's views on growth management are sound, responsible and thoroughly Oregonian..... During a series of key votes on urban reserve areas...he consistently voted to protect farm land and forest... It's that kind of commitment to simple, practical ideas that has distinguished Monroe's political career."
