The chair of Clackamas County Republican Party recently wrote, “It’s fun to discuss Presidential politics, but we have work to do, right here, right now.” Boy! Have they got that right! Somehow I don’t think their work with their mindset is going to change the outcome. That said, we too have work to do in Clackamas County.

While presidential politics seems to dominate the news day and night, I admit I did not watch either of the Republican presidential debates. It seemed not only ridiculous but also disturbing to see candidates not discussing issues but going after one another, trying to catch up to the number one candidate, who does not need to be named. And several have no experience whatsoever to govern or know what it is to negotiate and compromise. The thought that a bully would be in charge of our country is scary! Continue reading »

This is both a national and a global problem, but it hits Oregon harder than almost any other place: Oregon has the lowest corporate taxes in the country — by a lot. When corporations don’t pay taxes, working families are left with the burden of supporting our communities. And the results of this are felt in every community, every day: Our schools have been cut to the bone — We have the 3rd largest class sizes in the nation! — services for seniors are getting cut, and healthcare costs are skyrocketing.

What can be done to change this? Come to the our September meeting and find out. Ben Unger, executive director of Our Oregon, will be our speaker.

“Compassion, not Greed” was the theme of the Clackamas County Democrats’ booth at the Clackamas County Fair in Canby this year. Volunteers logged more than 200 hours preparing and staffing the booth over the six days of the Fair, and the result was another successful presence at the Fair.
