The Democratic Party of Oregon’s Platform and Legislative Agenda sets forth our values and goals for the upcoming elections and legislative sessions. The 2014-2015 DPO platform, for example, calls for living-wage local jobs, reproductive freedom of choice, a full range of educational courses, programs, and services, and much more. See the full platform here. (PDF)
Delegates from the county parties convene biennially to determine the DPO’s platform and legislative agenda for the next two years. The 2016 convention will be held on March 4-6 at Hillsboro High School. Delegates must be named by the end of January. Clackamas County Democrats will appoint as many as 84 delegates and 42 alternates at our January meeting.
