Walden Town Hall Today at 4 in Cascade Locks

There are so many things to ask Representative Walden about. We have a chance to do it today in Cascade Locks at 4 pm at the Marine Park Pavilion Building, 395 Portage Road.

As we know, Walden is a clever politician who will try to spin his own accomplishments in a positive light, and criticize everything Democrats are trying to do. Let's try to get him on the record with some of the critical things happening right now. Following are some sample questions. I'm sure you can think of many more!

Indivisible Poll Results and Last Day for Quarter 2 Donations

Indivisible conducted another flash poll after Thursday's debate, and probably this won't be a surprise, but 65% of Indivisible members resonding said Kamala Harris won the debate. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders were tied for a distant second place with 7% each.

DON'T FORGET! Senator Jeff Merkley Town Hall Today at noon

Today (Saturday June 15) at the National Guard Readiness Center, Senator Jeff Merkley is hosting a Town Hall from noon - 1pm. Come a bit early to sign in and get a ticket if you want to ask a question. If you don't want to ask a question, get a ticket anyway and give it to someone who does want to ask a question, to give them a better chance of having their number called.

Update on HB2020 with a need for volunteers to get it passed

HB2020 passed out of Ways and Means yesterday on a 13:8 vote.

It now moves to the House floor next week presumably - probably a positive vote, then the Senate floor. A final vote in the House is scheduled for next Monday. There seems to be a great deal of confidence that this will happen since the Ds have a 35:25 edge and thus HB2020 can lose 4 votes and still prevail.
