OREGON VOTERS will cast their ballots by January 23 in a special referendum on a health-care tax assessment adopted by the State Legislature in 2017. City Club members and area residents will have two opportunities on January 9 to hear presentations and ask questions. The City Club program committee has reached out to proponents and opponents of the measure, but no one from an organization opposing the measure has agreed to participate.
Both sessions are free and open the public. Attendees at the lunch meeting have the option of purchasing a meal from Valley Catering (Bavarian beef with bacon, onion and mushrooms in a red wine sauce served over egg noodles, salad, and cookies) for $10 (for members) or $15 (for non-members). A vegetarian option (salad or burrito) is available from Laughing Planet. To reserve a meal or order the vegetarian option, send email to email@example.com by Friday, January 5. You can also pre-pay for lunch with a credit card.
