If you live/ride/work out in Washington County, here’s an event you might want to check out:

Join us for Values and Vision: A Candidates Forum on Growth and Transportation

As our region manages future growth, how will we keep our cherished quality of life? How can we keep traffic congestion from getting worse? Join 1000 Friends, the Westside Transportation Alliance and the Coalition for a Livable Future in hearing from Washington County Commission candidates for Districts 2 and 4 as they share their positions on future growth and transportation issues.

The Washington County Commission will face important decisions regarding where future growth should occur, how to protect our farmland and natural resources and how to provide infrastructure and services for urbanizing areas. Please join moderator Steve Clark, President of the Portland Tribune in hearing what the candidates have to say.

When: Wednesday, October 6th, 7-8:30pm

Where: Washington County Fair Complex, Cloverleaf Building (873 NE 34th Ave, Hillsboro. Click here for a map). Accessible by MAX blue line at Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport stop)
