March 5 Bus Project Politics is Fun!

The Bus Project is a model for democracy. Politics are not boring. Politics are fun! One of their projects are get togethers over beer to hear discussions on public policy and participate in them. We live in a econosphere of federal, state, metro, county, city and personal policy. To calibrate, the federal budget is about 4 trillion (we send more tax to Washington than we receive back); the Oregon State budget, 8 billion (Portland sends more to poor counties than we receive); Multnomah County, 300 Million; the City of Portland, 2.5 billion.

This evening join host Steve Novick, budget polymath and US Senate candidate, for a discussion of what is happening with the Oregon budget. Steve is the hook guy. You can have an impact - those people in Salem are hungry for real world passion.

Bus Project get together at Backspace 115 NW 5th. All ages. 7PM Free
