If you haven't already contacted your Member of Congress, do it now. The GOP plan isn’t “tax reform.” It’s tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of the 99% and our communities. To pay for the huge federal deficit it would create, the bill effectively kills the Affordable Care Act. Along with other GOP proposals, these cuts would severely harm rural hospitals like ours.

Do Democracy Here: Become a board member at the college
As a three term board member or trustee for Clatsop Community College, I know we have a current opportunity for a person to be appointed to finish the term of office vacated by Patrick Wingard for District 2. I ask you to please spread the word and urge any responsible voter and College education supporter within that district to contact CCC and indicate their interest. This appointment will not requiring “running” or filling for office but a simple statement of their interest and experience. The BOD will then conduct interviews and make a selection. Right now I am surprised to say we have but one applicant and I do not know their identity. There is no better or easier introduction to public service that I know of and the College BOD is really non-partisan.
