The GTFF executive council has voted to donate $500 to Pat Riggs-Henson in her race for Lane County Commissioner and $500 to John Kitzhaber in his race for Oregon Governor. The GTFF membership at the GMM has already endorsed these candidates and the exectuive council felt it was important to also donate money directly to aid these important campaigns.
If you are interested in supporting these campaigns and the Peter DeFazio campaign oppertunities abound, you haven’t missed your chance to volunteer! There will be phone banking and canvassing from the AFSCME office, 688 Charnelton, beginning at 5:30 tomorrow (Tuesday 10/27), Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, we’ll be phone banking and canvassing from the Woodworker’s Hall, 1116 S. A Street, Springfield. Please let Katie Dettman (firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-728-4558) know if you want to help John Kitzhaber, Peter DeFazio and Pat Riggs-Henson defeat their opponents in very close elections. Or just stop by! Food will be provided.
