Attend the Portland City Council Forum on Campaign Finance Reform!
On Sept. 8, Commissioner Fritz will hold a public forum on a campaign reform proposal that could become law in the very near future (as in weeks from now) — if we can demonstrate that there is widespread public support for enacting campaign finance reform in Portland. So, let’s pack the building! There are currently NO campaign finance limits in Oregon, so this is a huge opportunity to bring more voices into politics, and get big money out!
We need to show massive public support at this hearing so our City Commissioners will vote YES! 7:00-8:30pm at Matt Dishman Community Center, 77 NE Knott St, Portland, Oregon 97212.

We are thrilled to announce the Bernie PDX endorsements for 2016:
– Chloe Eudaly for Portland City Council
– James Ofsink for Oregon Senate District 21
– Amanda Schroeder for East Multnomah County
– Yes on 26-184: Honest Elections Multnomah County
– Yes On 97: A Better Oregon
Visit our 2016 Endorsements page to learn more about our endorsees and why Bernie PDX voted for them!
We’ll be inviting our endorsees back to our weekly Tuesday meeting so Bernie PDX members can get to know them better, learn how they will change our region for the better, and find out how we can help! James Ofsink will be joining us on Sept. 6 at 7:30pm, 5040 SE Milwuakie Ave.
We believe these candidates and initiatives embody Bernie’s values, and will bring important elements of Bernie’s platform to our region.
The candidates do not accept corporate contributions. Like Bernie, they will work solely in the interests of the people. They are all running grassroots campaigns against establishment opponents backed by big-money donors, like Comcast and wealthy developers. One initiative will make corporations pay their fair share, and the other will enact county-wide campaign finance limits, in a state without any.
* ONLY 10 WEEKS UNTIL ELECTION DAY! *
6:00pm: Help keep the Revolution going! Phonebank to recruit attendees to the Portland City Council hearing on Commissioner Fritz’s campaign finance reform bill. Oregon has NO campaign finance limits! We need to show public support for this initiative to encourage the City Council to vote YES on it! Just bring a phone.
7:30pm: Join us to review the results of the first ever Bernie PDX endorsements, and how we can help our candidates and initiatives win! We’ll also write letters encouraging Portland City Council and Multnomah County Commissioners to support the upcoming campaign finance reform proposals.
