A quick reminder that residents of north Portland can meet their lawmakers tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Cascade Campus of PCC.
Sen. Margaret Carter will be on hand along with Reps. Chip Shields and Tina Kotek. The event takes place in Room 112 of Terrell Hall.
This is a great opportunity to talk to them about the issues of the day that mean the most to you. Whether it’s the wacky economy, education, “green-collar” jobs, transportation issues or health care reform – or something else entirely different – this is the time to make sure they know how you feel.
Sen. Carter this year is one of two chairs of the budget-writing Ways and Means Committee. This is the committee with the purse strings. It’s a tough job, especially in this recession.
Rep. Shields sits on the House Judiciary Committee and a subcommittee of Ways and Means focusing on public safety (he co-chairs that one).
Rep. Kotek has the House Health Care Committee and also co-chairs the Human Services subcommittee of Ways and Means.
Ten to noon tomorrow, Terrell Hall, Cascade. Don’t miss it.
