The office will be kept open from noon-3 p.m. every day from Friday, Jan. 19, through Tuesday, Jan. 23, for people to come in and make phone calls to Josephine County Democrats who have not voted yet. There will scripts for you to read and call sheets provided to you. Please come in and help get the Yes vote out for Measure 101. It’s a game of numbers in this off-election, and the more people we can encourage to vote and turn their ballots in, the better the chance Measure 101 will pass. Please bring your cell phone with you to make the calls.

Congressman Greg Walden paid $7,000 in taxpayer funds in a secret settlement with a staff member to resolve the man’s complaints that Walden unfairly cut his hours due to his combat-related health problems. Cody Standiford, the staffer with whom Walden settled in 2013, came to work for the congressman in his Bend office in 2010 after being discharged from the Army.

At our December meeting, we put together a list of priorities for 2018 and from that drafted a timeline to accomplish our goals. This is just a working document so that we can hammer this out quickly at our next meeting and get on to business.
There was energy about having a local event or protest as well as a lot of environmental passion in the room, so I thought about shooting for an environmental event around Earth Day, April 22. That gives us some time plus beats the primary after which our main energy should be election focused. What do you all think?
Join us on Saturday January 13 at 10:00 AM at the Illinois Valley Coalition.
You are invited — Thursday, Jan. 11, 6:30 pm At the UUGP Center, 129 NW ‘E’ St, Grants Pass.
“Fix It!” is a compelling documentary film exploring the crisis in healthcare from the perspective of business owners and employees. Most people are surprised to learn we already have more than enough money in the system to take care of all of us— and much better! This is a thoroughly practical, dollars and cents approach to improving healthcare from our current inefficient and expensive quagmire into one that serves ALL of us.
