Vox Pop pdx at JTTF Town Hall Meeting 1/13/2011

On January 13th, 2011 a Town Hall Meeting was held in the ballroom at Portland State University to discuss whether or not Portland Police should join the FBI to form a Joint Terrorism Task Force. The meeting was very well attended.

Listen to the voices of citizens who came to participate and express their concerns about accountability from local police as well as the FBI. I think it was a really good turn out. You can contribute to this process by commenting here:

"Suffragist City" a small survey of Oregon citizens on voting

It would have been nice to sit around a coffee shop or a bar and talk with folks about politics and religion but alas everyone seemed to be somewhere else. It was a beautiful autumn day so they were probably on a nice hike in the Columbia Gorge.  I walked around until I found a few people at bus stops and on the street and outside of grocery stores and working in their yards or painting  houses. I asked them about the upcoming election. The first question I asked is “Are you going to vote?” Sadly, most people are not really very interested or informed. Some are too disenchanted ever since the Supreme Court gave the Presidency to Bush. Several people just couldn’t think of a reason to be interested at all, especially younger voters. But I did meet a handful of people who still think their vote matters.

How about you? Join me on facebook and let’s talk civics.
