PDCC Endorsement Results on 2021 Ballot Questions

Last night, PDCC membership had a spirited discussion regarding some of the referendum questions on this year’s ballot. We heard from advocates on each proposal, discussed the issues, and took a vote. Thank you to everyone who participated, and especially all the advocates who took their time to attend and share their information. Here are the results from the endorsement votes that were held:

Question 1 – Yes on 1: The measure to endorse Yes on 1 did not pass. (13 y, 13 n)

Question 1 – No on 1: The measure to endorse No on 1 did not pass. (13 y, 14 n)

Shelter Question – Option A: The measure to endorse Option A passed. By a majority vote of members present, PDCC endorses Option A. (19 y, 7 n)

Shelter Question – Option B: The measure to endorse Option B did not pass. (4 y, 21 n)

Shelter Question – Option C: The measure to endorse Option C did not pass. (9 y, 17 n)

As the Portland Dems, we want to help each other make informed decisions and seek opportunities to collectively influence the public decision-making process. Thank you to everyone who participated in this effort last night.

Please make sure to vote by Nov. 2! Here is a link to Portland’s election page, where you can find a sample ballot with the wording of Options A, B, and C.

In addition to Question 1, there are two other State Referendum questions on the ballot. You can find the wording of each here on the State’s election page.

Tonight: Let’s talk about Emergency Shelter (Options A, B, and C)

Are you ready to vote on Portland’s emergency shelter plan? There’s a city referendum about this on our 2021 election ballot, and many Portland voters still aren’t sure how to decide.

TONIGHT, we are having a Portland Dems member discussion about Option A, Option B, and Option C.

We will have an opportunity to learn more from advocates for each Option, we will have a member discussion about it, and we will have the opportunity to vote whether or not to endorse one or more of the Options at this time. Come learn more, be part of the discussion, and vote!
