October 17-20: Unit Meetings: Ballot Measures




Judi Umaki, Voter Service Chair
It is impossible to ignore the fact that election season is here!  This year it seems like it’s been going on all year, but now we are down to the final weeks.

In League we are all about educating voters, our members and others.  This month, in addition to presenting information about the seven State of Oregon ballot measures to you at three of our units (M, W, Th.; see Calendar on page 2), we will be sharing with other groups.  We will be at Willamette View Manor’s Political Action Committee’s meeting (to include our Friday unit) on Thurs., Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m., Tues., Oct. 11, 2:00 p.m. at Carmen Oaks in Lake Oswego and at the Seasoned Adults gathering in Milwaukie at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 26.

We are also co-sponsoring a candidates’ forum with the Wilsonville Public Library at 7 p.m. on Thurs., Oct. 13, highlighting the county commissioner and county chair races, moderated by Marge Easley.  On Thurs., Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m., LVCC member Mike Taylor will moderate a West Linn city councilor and mayoral candidate forum at the West Linn City Hall.

Three other great sources of information will be the Video Voters Guide being recorded Oct. 3-6, moderated by Marge Easley.  Watch your cable TV listings for dates and times for viewing.  
The Portland League has a good synopsis of the ballot measures online at LWVPDX.org.  In addition, LWVORs printed Voters Guide will be available in libraries and some senior centers soon.  Watch for it as well as the results of Healthy Democracy’s Citizen Initiative Review of Measure 97 in the state voters guide which will be mailed to your homes.  Other resources are VOTE411.org and WWW.Vote Oregon.org.

Helping me in this important work are Katie Lu, Marge Easley, Sylvia Smith, Jean Hoffman, Nancy Nolin, Robi Ingram-Rich, Pam Ashland, Hilly Alexander, Mike Taylor and several others of you who have yet to be drafted!
