Blog: Good budget primer tonight
Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
Do you want to know how the budget of the state of Oregon operates?
I used to work as a journalist covering the Capitol, and I’ve never found a better primer on the budget than the one given by Rep. Peter Buckley, Ashland. He is co-chairman of the all-important, budget-writing Ways & Means Committee. He also is a longtime thespian and brings a combination of budgetary know-how and theatricality to his talks.
Buckley will be speaking at 7 p.m. tonight (Monday, May 2) at Beaverton City Hall, 4755 S.W. Griffith Drive.
If you want to ask these legislators some questions, tonight would be a perfect opportunity. And if you’re looking for an insightful budget analysis that’s easy to understand, don’t miss this event.
