Stop the Bull Run Takeover Training - April 15

On April 15, PTE Local 17-COPPEA Chapter is offering a training for its members on Ballot Initiative 26-156 and the Stop the Bull Run Takeover campaign.  This initiative will be on the May 20 ballot, and proposes that the Water & Sewer Utilities be removed from City Council control and that a Portland Public Water District be created.  

At the training, you will learn the history behind the measure, the implications for the City and Portland citizens if the initiative passes (i.e. utility rates will not go down as the proponent claims), and how you can help fight this measure. A representive from the campaign will be at the training and campaign materials will be available, including yard signs and self-stamped postcards ready for you to mail to friends and family will be available -- please bring your address book!

When: April 15th, 5-6:30 p.m.

Where: The Lucky Lab - Hawthorne Location (915 SE Hawthorne)

*Some small snacks will be provided.  Drinks and other food not included.
