While things are going full-speed down in Salem, taking the time to talk to my friends and neighbors in East Multnomah County is incredibly important to me.
I’d love for you to join me in Gresham this weekend to share your comments and concerns about bills in the Legislature or issues affecting you. Here are the details on my two events:
Coffee with Constituents
Friday, March 25, 2011
Coffee's On at the Gresham Town Fair Shopping Center
600 NW Eastman Parkway
Town Hall Meeting with Senator Monnes Anderson,
Representative Greg Matthews, and Representative Matt Wand
Saturday, March 26, 2011
1:00PM - 2:00PM
Gresham Public Library
385 NW Miller Avenue
Also, there’s another public event that will soon be taking place in our area. The Legislature's Redistricting Committee is currently holding hearings across the state to gather input from Oregonians about how the boundaries of legislative districts should be redrawn.
This process occurs every ten years and determines new lines for each state House and state Senate district, as well as the boundaries for Oregon’s Congressional delegation. These district lines will be based on the new Oregon census numbers and on testimony taken from people across Oregon about what defines a “community of interest.” You can visit the Legislature's website to
learn more about redistricting.
I urge you to participate in the upcoming redistricting hearing in Gresham. Here are the details:
Redistricting Hearings - Legislative Redistricting Committee
Saturday, April 9, 2011
9:00AM - 12:00PM
Mt. Hood Community College, Room 1710

I hope you can join me at one of these events. I am always eager to hear from my constituents on the issues they care about!
