We still have an opportunity to help get to Yes on Measure 101 by contacting voters through a local phone bank: Wednesday January 17, at the Mid-Columbia Senior Center, 1112 W 9th, from 6 to 8 PM. Click on the link below, scroll down to The Dalles, and register.

Reminder: M101 Rally Today The Dalles east side

Looks like the weather is going to hold. 4pm at the east side of downtown. I will bring some signs and election cards. We will actually stand along the eastern approach to the traffic circle so as not to distract people dealing with the merging in the circle.

M101 - SEIU/CareWorks phone bank / canvas

Just a reminder that there will be a combined canvas / phone bank (your choice which you do) hosted by SEIU tomorrow, Saturday, starting at 11am, end about 2pm. It is at the Senior Center at Cherry Heights and 9th St. Enter off Cherry Heights. POPers welcome.

Measure 101 Visibility

Some of us are meeting next Monday (Jan 15) at 4pm near the eastside circle to hold signs up for Measure 101. We won't be standing in the circle itself, but just to the east of it. We have signs for you. We will stay till it is dark, which won't be too long. Cancel if raining. Please come and join us!

Calling All POP Volunteers!

Hey POPers - 2018 is here and it's time to hit the streets for our elections and the Measure 101 special election is upon us. We have designed a program for our members to have regular visibility events (rallies) at some high profile locations in town for Measure 101, like 6th and Cherry Heights, the eastside traffic circle, the hospital district, etc. We need Corner Captains for each location to coordinate volunteers and we need volunteers to show up and hold a sign. Times are flexible - we just need people, and we need them for the next two weeks until the election happens.

Wasco County Commissioners are up for re-election

Now is the time to create a progressive change in our local elections. Two Wasco County Commissioners are up for re-election (position #1 and #3). Scot Here and Rod Runyon. Be the one to run as a candidate. Be the one to win. County Commissioners make over $40,000.00 per year. One must file as a candidate by March 2018.

Give me 10,000 men who are stout hearted men, ......

Tuesday's POP meeting is the most important so far! This is a day we should have an audience rivaling the attendance of last November. It is time to transform complaining into action. Until January 23rd, we need boots on the ground! We need "Corner Captains" and corner demonstrators. We need to align with the DEMs for the Neighborhood Leadership Program. We shall make a difference in the January 23rd referendum!

Tuesday 6:00 at the Highway 30! Be there! Bring a friend! Make a difference!
