Healthy Democracy would like to recognize the many important contributions of our board members this year: Pat Benn, Scott Borduin, Ned Crosby, Susan Edwards and our Board President, Mick Mortlock. We extend special thanks to retiring member and past Board Chair Susan Edwards, for her long and valued support.

We’d also like to welcome new board members, Elliot Shuford, Marge Easley and Robin Teater.

Elliot recently transitioned from the Healthy Democracy staff, and we salute him for his years of leadership and representation of the CIR to decision makers and community leaders. We’re pleased that he will continue to serve on the Healthy Democracy Board of Directors.

Marge Easley has held many leadership positions with the League of Women Voters, most recently as state president from 2007-2011. Robin Teater currently serves as the executive director of the American Leadership Forum of Oregon. Both Marge Easley and Robin Teater bring a wealth of leadership, advocacy and nonprofit administration experience to the Healthy Democracy board.
