What is happening in local May elections? Hear from our school board and local district candidates

“From my 20 years in politics I learned one lesson: outrage alone doesn’t win elections. People who are informed and engaged are the engine of our democracy.” - Jen Psaki
In places such as Newberg, we have seen how the loss of a school board election can disrupt a whole community. On May 16th, Oregon holds elections for school boards and special districts, such as parks, fire and water districts. Turnout for these elections is usually below 24%. Yet, they have a major impact on our day to day lives.
On April 6, at our zoom East Washington County Dems meeting we will hear from candidates running in many of these contested races. This includes candidates for Sherwood and Tigard-Tualatin School Boards as well as Tualatin Valley Water District. Other candidates may join us as well to introduce themselves. These participants will tell us a little about themselves and answer questions. This is a chance to learn about the issues they will be facing during the next two years and how you can help win this election.
As always, all are welcome to join us on Zoom for learning, caring conversation, and community. You can reach out to EWCDems@gmail.com with any questions or comments. We will meet at 6:30 for those who wish a social time with the program beginning at 7 pm on Thursday, April 6, 2023. The zoom link is below:
