We Meet Tomorrow + Help Jamie Win
We Meet Tomorrow with Representative Suzanne Bonamici Representative Suzanne Bonamici, who now represents even more A4D members in Congress thanks to redistricting, will be our guest at tomorrow’s meeting. Be sure to register if you haven’t already. We begin at 5:00pm, Tuesday, April 26.
Suzanne was first elected to the US Congress in a special election in 2012 and serves on the Education and Labor Committee, where she is chair of the subcommittee on civil rights and human services, and on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Understanding the urgent need for bold action on climate, she is one of only nine Democrats serving on the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, where she helped write and is working on implementing a comprehensive, science-based Climate Action Plan. You can read the meeting agenda here. See you on Zoom tomorrow!
Let’s Get Cranking for Jamie McLeod Skinner The Primary Is May 17 Now is the time to do all we can to make sure Jamie wins the upcoming primary election. She is running in one of the closest and most important Democratic primaries in the nation! Below are ways you can make a difference in her campaign to unseat the incumbent Kurt Schrader in Congressional District 5. For the record, Jamie is the only candidate in District 5 who is committed to single payer healthcare and federal legislation to enable state-based care; she is endorsed by Health Care for All Oregonians (HCAO). Also, Jamie dropped in on COIN’s April 19 meeting to say thank you for the endorsement; you can read the meeting notes here for more detail.
Attend Jamie’s press conference Wednesday, April 27, at 3:00pm outside of Representative Schrader’s office in Oregon City located at 621 High Street. Jamie will be leading Oregon's medical community in protesting Schrader's vote against lower drug prices that would have made prescription drugs more affordable for Oregonians. Other speakers will call on Schrader to remove his TV ads in which he takes credit for lowering drug prices. Register here.
