Blog: Elected officials join Focus the Nation town hall on climate change

Photos and Story by

Seems like everyone’s talking bout climate change these days. The difference is: These folks are in a position to do something about it.

Tonight, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Hoffman Hall, Portland State University, you can take part in the Portland Focus the Nation town hall meeting on climate change.

Elected officials on hand include Reps. Ben Cannon and Jules Bailey, Congressman Earl Blumenauer and Portland Mayor Sam Adams. A representative of U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley’s supposed to be there, too.

As Rep. Cannon put it recently, “This is a chance to hear how elected leaders at all levels of government are working to confront the challenge of climate change, and, more importantly, a chance for you to ask us questions, share your ideas, and hold us accountable for our commitments.”
