September 22, 2016 — Oregon WAND Monthly Program
What Was It Like to Be a Delegate at the 2016 Democratic National Convention?
Join us for the first monthly program of the Fall season when Katherine Ogilvie, Chandra Paetsch, and Melanie Pinto will share their experiences as delegates at the 2016 Democratic National Convention held this summer in Philadelphia. They will talk about the impact of Bernie Sanders at the Convention and how he shaped the final election platform.
Also at this program, retired 4J school teacher and Measure 97 activist Pete Mandrapa will talk about the measure which would require large corporations in Oregon to pay their fair share of taxes. Currently, Oregon has the lowest overall business tax in the nation. Measure 97 has been called “Bernie’s Measure” by a number of Oregonians.
