Congratulations on passing Measure 101!

The Pacific Green Party stands for healthcare as a right and extends its thanks to all the voters in Oregon who overwhelmingly approved ballot measure 101 to impose hundreds of millions of dollars in new taxes on hospitals, health insurers, and managed care companies to cover the costs of expanding Medicaid in the state.  Nonetheless, this is a short term fix and we continue to press for a single-payer healthcare system covering everyone with no restrictions or qualifications.

Be sure to vote by by 8pm Jan 23

All Oregonians deserve access to healthcare.  Please be sure to cast your vote in Oregon's Special Election for Measure 101!

Demand Congress restore Net Neutrality

So the FCC voted to kill #NetNeutrality admitting they care more about enriching their corporate sponsors than listening to 83% of Americans.

This isn't over. BOMBARD Congress with calls & tell them to defend the free & open internet OR ELSE. Capitol switchboard: (202) 224-3121

It's not enough just to fight for reversal of the FCC's decision. We demand public ownership of services that provide Internet access... We should all be enjoying the benefits of a free and open Internet.

Report on the PGP 2017 Fall Convention

 Astoria_group_2017.jpg

 

The Pacific Green Party Fall Convention took place in beautiful Astoria for the first time in memory. It was held on Sunday, September 17th, at Clatsop Community College in a room offering a stunning view of the Columbia River.

Astoria has a contingent of very active Greens who have run for office, served on the State Coordinating Committee, and engaged in local politics, among their other activities. The Astoria Greens were pleased to host the other members from around the state.

Much of the morning session was taken up with minor adjustments to the PGP Bylaws to make them clearer or more amenable to changing conditions. This was a project initiated by SCC member Alan Zundel earlier this year and is now largely complete.

In the afternoon the attendees turned to more challenging topics, such as vetting candidates for nominations to public offices, whether we should drop the “supporting member” category, setting up an advance registration system for conventions, and more effective use of social media.
