Just got this email from the BTA:
Dear BTA Friends,
The Metro Natural Areas bond measure is a close call and may not pass in this election!
We are asking you to do two things to help it through:
1) Donate any amount of money. $10, $20, $100, $500 – whatever you can. Go to http://www.savenaturalareas.org and click “Contribute.” Every dollar helps.
2) Ask five people TODAY! NOW! – by phone, email, or in person – if they’ve voted, and if they voted in favor of Measure 26-80.
Measure 26-80, if it passes, will fund bike and pedestrian trails all over the Metro region – from Beaverton to Forest Park, Tualatin to Wilsonville, Lake Oswego to Tigard, Gresham to the Columbia River and Boring, and more. It has the potential to add tremendously to our region’s biking and walking infrastructure.
Those are your marching orders. Over and out.
