OPB, Oct. 23, 2016: 2 Progressive Democrats Vie For Portland City Council Seat
“On a recent fall evening, dozens of Bernie Sanders campaign volunteers stuffed envelopes. With Sanders out of the spotlight, they’re focusing on local races and have thrown their weight behind Eudaly.”

* THE BALLOTS HAVE DROPPED! * Join us to canvass, stuff envelopes, write letters to the editor, or phonebank to help elect James Ofsink to the Oregon legislature! James is a Berniecrat who will fight for single-payer universal healthcare, getting big money out of politics, meaningful action on climate, and making government accountable to the people. If these issues are important to you, come out and support James so he can change Oregon politics for the better!
James’ opponent, Kathleen Taylor, is funded by Comcast, Wall Street, Nike, the healthcare lobby, and polluters. She doesn’t support universal healthcare, campaign finance reform, or furthering the bold, progressive agenda that Bernie popularized.
Come volunteer for James to continue the Political Revolution in Oregon! RSVP and invite your friends: facebook.com/events/1815478018693889/ Location: 5040 SE Milwaukie Ave. Portland
The Portland City Council will be considering Open and Accountable Elections reform at an upcoming meeting and we need to show up and speak out to ensure our elected officials know what Portland needs.
Open and Accountable Elections would limit the power of big money by reducing the maximum contribution for participating candidates to $250, and would give ordinary Portlanders a bigger say in the political process, by matching donations up to $50 six-to- one with limited public funds.
Not only would this allow people like you and me to have a bigger impact on Portland’s elections – it would also allow community-oriented candidates to run for office with the backing of their communities.
If we want to fight back against big money right here in Portland, then we need Open and Accountable Elections. Continue reading “Thursday, Nov. 3, 2:30-5:00pm: Public Hearing for Open and Accountable Elections!”
Join us to volunteer for Bernie PDX endorsees!

– Write letters to the Portland City Council urging them to vote YES on Amanda Fritz’s campaign finance reform proposal!

Stop by to pick up supplies, and then carpool on a lawn sign canvass for Honest Elections Multnomah County/Yes on 26-184! Come help pass $500 campaign finance limits in Multnomah County. There are currently NO campaign finance limits in Oregon, so passing this measure in Oregon’s most populous county would be HUGE! Visit honest-elections.com for more info about Measure 26-184.

Come volunteer to help elect Chloe Eudaly to Portland City Council, while we watch the Vice Presidential debate and eat snacks! We’ll be helping with mailers. Like Bernie, Chloe’s biggest challenge is name recognition, which is why mailers are so important! Chloe is our chance to help make Portland work for all of us!
Chloe would make City Council more representative of our city. She’d be the only sitting Commissioner to live on the Eastside, where most Portlanders live. She’d also be the only renter, the only small business owner, and the 8th woman ever to serve on the Council. If we want a City Commissioner who acts solely in the interests of people and the planet, we need to elect someone who doesn’t take money from corporations like Comcast, the fossil fuel industry, or wealthy developers.
This election is a fight for the future of Portland. If we want this city to be a place where Portlanders can afford to live, we need to elect Chloe. We hope you’ll join us to be a part of Portland history! Please bring snacks to share if you can!
