It is hard to believe that 2017 is winding down. This will be our last full business meeting of the year. As you all may remember, we have a Holiday Party Crock Pot Challenge for our December meeting. This year it will be on Thursday, December 14 at 6:30pm. Start prepping those recipes.
For our meeting this Thursday at the Environmental Center, we will hear from Paula Kinzer about a Clean Energy Bill Resolution. We also have Erik Horeis to discuss Ballot Measure 101. More information can be found to the right about both of these issues.
We will also be voting on a new treasurer for the organization, Steve Strang. We are excited to have him officially join the team and will need a PCP vote to confirm him.

Political Giving Tax Credits
Did you know that the state or Oregon will pay you back for your $50 or $100 donation? That’s right – to encourage grassroots giving the state will fully refund your $50 (single) or $100 (joint filing) donation on your 2017 state income tax return. Just note your donation on line 37 and take the full amount off the taxes you owe – it doesn’t matter if you take the standard deduction, this is fully refundable credit and it means that you can give us $50 or $100 at no cost to you! So, take advantage of this opportunity and help elect Democrats with your grassroots donation.
