Below is a news release that Portland Copwatch sent out with a link to the
fall version of the candidate police issues questionnaire. While similar
to the spring and summer versions, questions were updated based on current
events. PCW appreciates the five cosponsors of the questionnaire. Also, we
encourage you to raise these questions at any candidates' forums or
appearances between now and the election.
Reminder: PCW is a project of Peace and Justice Works, a 501-c-3
educational organization, and is not able to endorse any candidate.
We did not re-send the Peace Issues questionnaire that PJW put together
partially for capacity reasons. None of the current candidates answered
that questionnaire back in May.
Ballots are supposed to start arriving tomorrow.
