Rep. Ben Cannon to host Thursday town hall

Photos and Story by

You’re probably tired of my ranting and raving about how great it is to go to your lawmaker’s town hall meetings, or coffee gatherings. You’ve heard me say it’s a great way to connect to legislators, to express your views, to see where they stand.

Still not interested? How about if there’s pie? Ah ha. Not to sneery now, are we.

Rep. Ben Cannon is having a town hall from 7 to 8 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 19, at the Bipartisan Café, 7901 SE Stark. He wants to talk about issues including, but not limited to, Oregon’s dire economy, Wednesday’s announcement by the co-chairs of the budget-writing Ways and Means Committee, and the federal economic stimulus bill.

Did I mention you can buy pie?

Rep. Cannon serves District 46, which is west of Interstate 205 and south of Interstate 84. And, not for nothing, but the Bipartisan Café is a blast and one of my favorite eastside joints. I did a panel discussion there before the May 2008 primaries with reporter/editor Steve Law (one of the all-time great player/coaches) of The Portland Tribune. We had a pretty decent turnout.

Do yourself a favor and hit Rep. Cannon’s gig.
