The Portland metro area hosted its first-ever Citizens’ Initiative Review (CIR), facilitated by Healthy Democracy, a nonpartisan, nonprofit based in Portland. Up for review: Measure 26-199, the Metro Region Affordable Housing Bond Measure. A cross-section of voters – who were randomly selected to match the demographics of the metro region in key areas such as political affiliation, race and ethnicity, age, gender, and education – examined and deliberated on information related to the proposed measure and produced a Citizens’ Statement for the benefit of their fellow voters.
Four Community Information Meetings will be hosted throughout the Portland metro area, to provide citizens, legislators, elected officials, and other interested parties with more information about the Measure 26-199 Citizens’ Statement. Please join us!
