PCC folks lobby for community colleges at the Capitol

Photos and Story by

The man in the foreground would be our own Eddie Lincoln, who was in a hearing room at the Capitol last week to lobby for community college issues. Eddie is not only coordinator of business services at the Portland Metropolitan Workforce Development Center, he’s also president of the Faculty Federation (which, yes, makes him President Lincoln, and no, I never get tired of saying that).
