It was great to see so many of you at the successful Candidates Forum last Thursday! Now, we turn to our plans for getting people out to vote this election, and we’re hoping you’ll join us tonight to get started!

Portland Dems Meeting
Thursday, October 12, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

We’ll be brainstorming ways to help promote the Portland Dems Voter Guide and get out the vote for the November election. We’ll also be formally adopting the Portland Dems issue platform that the full membership voted on last month.

Also, if you joined us for the Candidates Forum last week, we’d love to get your feedback. Please take a minute to fill out this form and let us know how we can make next year even better.

We look forward to seeing you tonight!
