Countdown to Election Day: Measure 101


We're down to the last three days to pass Measure 101 and protect health care for thousands of Oregonians. What can you do?

-- Get your ballot in, if you haven't already. It's too late to mail, but there are Election Drop Boxes across Jackson County, including a new one at the Phoenix Library.

-- Volunteer to knock on doors or ring phones to remind people to get their ballots in by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

-- Make sure your friends and family members get their ballots in.

REMINDER: Final Measure 101 Rallies

Okay, folks, we are going down to the wire. We're scheduling two rallies here for the last couple of days: Monday at 4pm at the eastside of downtown, just past the traffic circle. Parking available just east of the circle roundabout. Rally till dusk (near to 5pm). Forecast is 25% chance of shower. Second is Tuesday at noon to 1pm at 2nd and Union - in front of the Post Office. Forecast is 75% chance of showers, but we're hoping our good karma gets us a break in the rain. If you would rather go to 6th and Cherry Heights instead either time, please do.

Calling All Candidates!

POPers: Both of our incumbent Republican legislative representatives resigned for other jobs recently and have been replaced by county commissioners with new people. This is a golden opportunity to elect somebody more progressive to one or both of these seats. Both seats take in more than just Wasco County, especially the Senate seat, but as of yet, neither has anybody declared to run against the unelected/appointed incumbents (the appointed Senator was an elected House representative). Deadline for declaring to run for one of these seats is March 6.

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.
