What's your great idea?
I love this city. Even though I grew up in Oregon – in Cottage Grove – I barely saw Portland when I was a kid. But in the early ‘90’s, when I was working for the Federal Justice Department in Washington as an environmental lawyer, I brought a case against the Port of Portland for violations of the Clean Water Act. It was during a visit on that case that I looked around and realized that Portland was the place I wanted to call home.
Steve Novick has spent the last two-plus decades fighting for progressive causes that matter to Portlanders. Steve has held big polluters accountable; defended Oregonians from Bill Sizemore’s attacks on education, health care and services to seniors; helped elect progressives; found innovative ways to let people know where their tax dollars go; and fought waste in the Oregon Lottery in order to get more money for schools.
This Election Night, on May 15, Metro Council Candidate Bob Stacey and I are holding a joint party from 7 to 11 p.m. at Holocene, at 1001 SE Morrison. Bob - who of course also lost a squeaker of a race, in 2010 - and I hope to prove that, in the immortal words of Tom Petty, even the losers get lucky sometimes. But win or lose, we will eat well, because Ken Gordon of Kenny and Zuke's has lined up a fine menu for us. (We'll also have a cash bar, but the food will be free.)
Please join us to canvass for Steve Novick this Saturday, May 5th from 11:00am-3:00pm (or as much time as you have). We will meet at campaign manager Beth Brownhill's house in SE Portland. Please call her at (503) 807-1761 for her address or send us an email to let us know you will be coming. We look forward to seeing you Saturday.
