Become a Delegate to the
BIENNIAL OREGON DEMS PLATFORM CONVENTION
May 31-June 1, 2014
The DPO is holding its Platform Convention in the Portland area this year and we need Washington County Delegates to attend.
This is EXCITING STUFF. There will likely be over 200 people from around the state. Find out what issues are brewing elsewhere. ADD YOUR IDEAS to the mix; everyone will get to vote on issues.
This is a great opportunity for Democrats aspiring to to serve in a public office! It is a chance to get your feet wet in public service, and can also be used as a stepping stone to higher offices. The link below lists the openings on the various county committees, councils and boards this spring!
Spring Adopt-A-Road Cleanup Party!
(Resceduled from May 3rd to May 31st)
Join us Saturday May 31st at 10AM to help make Washington County a little bit cleaner.
We park in the lot at the Oregon Heritage Apple Farm and spend about two hours picking up litter along Scholls Ferry Road between Teufel Hill Road and the River Road Roundabout. We will provide safety vests, pick-up claws and big orange bags. You bring your family & friends (age 12 and above please) wear solid shoes or boots, work gloves and weather-appropriate clothing for a couple hours out in the elements. Weather is expected to be sunny in the low to mid 60's.
(CLICK HERE for a map of the cleanup area.)
The Oregon Heritage Apple Farm is at 22801 Southwest Scholls Ferry Road, park in the lot to the west of the red barn and twin silos. Following the Cleanup we will adjourn as is our custom to a nearby public house for refreshing beverages and food.
To participate send an email to Cleanup Czar Luis Nava (navajl [at] msn [dot] com, 503-548-3650) so we have a count of expected volunteers, or just show up if you find you have time.
