Lining up the editorial boards of local newspapers
Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
The slog continues.
We have only 26 days until the election. President Pulliams is attending daily events, both on and off campus, to explain to would-be voters about the bond.
We also are hitting editorial boards for local newspapers. Those differ from paper to paper. Some, like The Oregonian, are three or four journalists – usually editors and columnists – who sit around a conference table and ask a bunch of questions. Others, like the Newberg Graphic, also include readers and members of the community on their editorial boards. I had the privilege of speaking to the Graphic’s board this morning. They asked good questions.
We have Community Newspapers Inc. tomorrow. For full disclosure, I should say that I was an editor for two CNI papers for five years: the Lake Oswego Review and the West Linn Tidings. I also was a reporter at the Gresham Outlook for two years.
Today, CNI includes The Portland Tribune as well as about 17 weekly and twice-a-week papers. Others in our area include the papers for Tigard, Tualatin, Beaverton, Forest Grove and more.
Unrelated note: Have you registered to vote? You have until Monday to do so. You can register at any county courthouse. Student government leaders on all campuses are engaged in voter registration drives right now. And I have registration forms in English and Spanish available in my office. Phone: (503) 977-4421.
