Urgent Update

Salem-Keizer School Board Director and Vice-Chair Jesse Lipold is rallying votes to be the next Chair of the Salem-Keizer School Board, which will be elected at their meeting at Noon tomorrow (July 1st).

Mr. Lipold is a radical right-winger who laughed at Paul Kyllo’s blackface and though it was funny enough to post about the next day. He also does not have the experience to lead the school board through these challenging times and be the leader needed to regain to restore the public trust. Five of the seven seats Board is held by GOP members. This wave must stop now!

Please share this message widely and click this link to submit public testimony opposing Mr. Lipold’s candidacy for Chair and Supporting Director Blasi for Chair before 11:30 am on July 1st (the meeting is at noon). If you have the time to call in to share your thoughts, that would be the most effective, but even an email is helpful. (503) 399-3001. Please read their agenda for more information on how to submit your comments.

Upcoming Emerge Training Announced

by Jillian Schoene
Executive Director, Emerge Oregon

Reaching out to you today to share about an upcoming training opportunity for active Democratic women candidates (or newly active) – and also an early head’s up about our application deadline for the Emerge Oregon Class of 2021.
The first opportunity is a virtual training on Saturday, August 8th and Sunday, the 9th. All Democratic women are welcome to register, but I’m particularly interested in candidates running for city council this November. I want to help these women get up and running – and heading in the right direction from the start - in a supportive setting with other women candidates. (For active candidates, this expenditure would need to be reported to the state as a campaign expense.)

I also wanted to provide an advance head’s up regarding our application deadline for the Emerge Oregon Class of 2021. Our deadline is Friday, October 16. Between now and then, I’m happy to speak with any Democratic woman you think should learn more about our program.

If there is someone you think should apply right now, they can do so today!
Have them start here, on our application process information page:
