Standing and District Committees January Meetings Roundup

We’re pleased to share the highlights below from Standing and District Committee meetings held in January

House District 38, co-leaders Kathy Gordon and Gary Thompson

While HD 38 did not meet in February, there is an exciting meeting planned for Sunday, March 3, from 2:30-5:00 p.m., at the Foothills Condos Meeting Room, 5065 Foothills Drive, Lake Oswego. This will be an opportunity to meet and listen to our Clackamas/Lake Oswego State Senator Rob Wagner and State Representative Andrea Salinas discuss their legislative agenda/priorities for this session. We have also invited John Wallin, who is running for re-election to the Lake Oswego school board, and Kirsten Aird, a new candidate to the Lake Oswego school board. Although they are not running against each other, they will both make their case to the voters. An additional speaker will be Cheri Partain, a newly elected House District Leader from HD35. Cheri is the director of adoption services at Boys & Girls Aid, the oldest child welfare agency in Oregon.

Pot O’ Gold Dinner coming March 10th!

Please join the Clackamas Democrats for a casual dinner with a touch of Irish malarkey!  Sunday evening, March 10th, the fun starts at 5:00pm with cocktails and socializing at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas. There’s a map if you click here.

During the cocktail hour guests can buy a necklace to participate in the “Heads or Tails” game with a chance to win a wonderful prize!  Dinner will be served at 6:00pm, followed by a live auction of wrapped gifts. Yes, wrapped gifts! That’s when the malarkey begins – although the gifts have a value of $20 or more, you have no idea what’s under the wrapping. The fun is in the surprise! Perhaps you’ll find ….  a Pot o’ Gold!

To support the auction, we encourage guests to bring a wrapped gift with a minimum value of $20, but it is not required. Please, no wine or alcohol.  To accommodate your budget,  tickets are priced from $30 to $60 each.
