Thank you to everyone who participated in the PDCC Special Meeting this evening. At the end of our discussion, the members present took a vote and decided to endorse a temporary indoor mask mandate at this time.
By means of this member vote, the Portland Democratic City Committee approves the following resolution:
â€œIn response to the public health crisis caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Portland Democratic City Committee endorses the adoption of a citywide indoor mask mandate considered by the Portland City Council on September 20, 2021, and calls upon the Council to affirm passage of this important safety measure at its next opportunity.â€
We encourage the Portland City Council to approve a temporary indoor mask mandate at their upcoming meeting on October 4. If anyone wishes to attend the City Council’s Monday night meeting and add your perspective during the public comment period, you mayÂ find the information to do so here.
