Featured Speaker: Lynn Peterson, Sustainable Communities and Transportation Policy Advisor to Governor Kitzhaber

Please join us at the January 10th luncheon to hear from Lynn Peterson regarding Governor Kitzhaber’s agenda for transportation.

Lynn will discuss the following:
Transportation in America has reached a great period of transition. As we chart a course for the Governor’s administration and for Oregon’s future, we find ourselves with significant opportunities to make Oregon more efficient, more connected and more prosperous. The Governor is very committed to creating family-wage jobs across Oregon to get our economy back on track, and transportation will be a key element of our economic recovery. From changing the ways we build and repair roads and bridges, to investing in new inter-city rail links and electric vehicle infrastructure, we are pioneering a 21st Century transportation system to help create a 21st Century clean economy in Oregon.

The luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. and will be held at the Governor Hotel in downtown Portland at 614 SW 11th.
