It's almost that time again, time to ask yourself if you can be apart of making St. Johns the great place that we all call home. What do you love about St. Johns that makes it so great? Are you willing to stand up to advocate for the issues you know matter most? Because SJNA needs you!
Last year, SJNA expanded board seats to 15 members. That's 15 opportunities to get involved, give a hoot, and grow this community for the better.
Sure, we're not perfect. We've got traffic racing through our neighborhood streets. We've got unregulated polluters impacting our air quality. We've got new buildings going up all over the area. We've got rising rents displacing our long-loved neighbors. And yet, despite it all, we've also got one of the best places to live in Portland. Be apart of what will make it better for every neighbor in the year to come.
SJNA elections are the 8th of October, 7PM, at the St. Johns Community Center.
To run: Nominations will be accepted at the start of the 10/8 meeting. Each candidate will be given equal time to speak about their position. Once done, voting will begin by write in ballot, and tallied by guests from a near-by North Portland neighborhood.
To vote: Voters must be a member of SJNA. Members either live*, work, or own a business in St. Johns or Cathedral Park (*whether you are a renter, homeowner, or houseless; if you reside here, you're apart of SJNA). Voters must also attend either the August or September general meetings.
Mark your calendar for our next meeting, September 10th, 7PM, at the St. Johns Community Center to learn more about SJNA, our voting process, and to be eligible to have your October vote count!
