Ben Unger hosts Kick-Off & Canvass for Susan Mclain for HD29

What: A fundraiser and canvass to help Susan McLain win her race for State Representative in House District 29, hosted by Rep. Ben Unger
When: Saturday, 20th of September, 10am
Where: Susan's Campaign Office - 159 SE 2nd Ave., Hillsboro


As you know, improving our public schools was my top priority when I was in the Legislature - I couldn't make the progress we deserved, but Susan McLain has. She's been a teacher in our schools for the last 40 years, she knows what our kids need, and can fight for better funding for every Oregon school. Susan has raised her family in Forest Grove, taught in Hillsboro, and gone to church in Cornelius for decades. She covers all three communities pretty well. She even has some government experience, serving on Metro Council for 16 years while being a mom and a teacher. Makes my resume look like chopped liver. Susan is the most dedicated, talented, experienced person in our district - usually you can't get those people to run for office - but here she is - out knocking on doors and raising money every day. She needs and deserves your support.

I am working to raise $3000 for Susan because her campaign needs every penny for the final two months. We have a dollar for dollar match for every penny I raise up to $3000, and we can't let those potential dollars go uncollected. And, she needs our help on the doors - I am also working to get 1000 doors knocked for Susan in one day - $3000 and 1000 doors - that's what she needs - to do that I need your help!

To raise the money and hit the doors, I'm hosting a fall kickoff fundraiser and canvass for Susan on Saturday, September 20th at 10am. Join us at Susan's campaign office in Hillsboro that day to meet a great teacher we need in Salem, learn about her race, and help her win by donating and knocking some doors!

Can't make it? You do not need to show up to make a contribution. Like I said, we've got a donor who will match everything we can raise up to $3,000 by the 20th and you can help us maximize that support by making a donation to Susan's campaign online today.

With Oregon's varying geo-climates, it's possible to grow dozens of grape varieties. Add to that the creative spirit of Oregon's winemakers and you've got some delightfully obscure selections to taste. Of the 72 grape varieties planted throughout the state, wine makers have particularly focused on 15, which make up 96% of Oregon's acreage. Three of Oregon’s renowned varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot blanc, and Malbec.
