Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
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,
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.”
