Bentz/Bonham Carbon Town Hall this Tuesday at 6pm

Fellow POPPERS, it's time to speak up for climate legislation, and speak out against the anti-democratic behavior of Senator Bentz and fellow Republicans who walked out during this past legislative session to prevent a quorum and thus prevent a vote on many important bills. Please come if you can this Tuesday, July 30 at 6pm, to the Readiness Center up by the community college, for a "Carbon Town Hall," hosted by Sen Bentz and Rep Bonham.

There are so many things to ask Representative Walden about. We have a chance to do it today in Cascade Locks at 4 pm at the Marine Park Pavilion Building, 395 Portage Road.
