October 13th General Meeting/Central Committee Meeting

October 13th Meeting at Taborspace
5441 SE Belmont St. (enter on 54th Ave., directly to downstairs space)

Doors open for check-in at 6:15; meeting starts at 6:30, must end by 8:30.

We have unfinished business to finish, and final plans for a strong finish to the campaign, to get our slate cards to voters in Multnomah County and help get ballots returned. Some of our endorsed positions on ballot measures have big money coming in to oppose them (Measure 97, for example). Voters have shown us that they want to know what we think, so let’s tell them.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of election fatigue out there, people saying, “Can it just be over tomorrow?” But it can’t, and this is the time to build a strong finish.

In Oregon, GOTV (Get Out The Vote) doesn’t quite describe vote by mail, but BITB (Bring In Those Ballots) does. Let’s do it.

Endorsement Decisions at September 8th Meeting-New Location

Due to increased interest in Central Committee meetings, we have reserved a larger venue for the rest of 2016 and early 2017: Taborspace, 5441 SE Belmont St. Due to venue requirements, we are moving the meeting earlier. Check-in can begin at 6:15 and the meeting will begin at 6:30; we have to have the room cleaned up and be out by 9:00.

Our September 8th Central Committee Meeting will be focused on making decisions on endorsements of ballot measures. Positions taken in support or opposition will appear on the reverse side of our slate cards in October. If neither support nor oppose position gets 2/3 of the vote, the Party will take no position on that measure. Spokespersons have been invited from the campaigns, and we will reserve time for debate by members on each measure. The Endorsement Task Force’s report is attached for download.
