Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2012 Political Forum on Energy & Sustainability. The event was a huge success!! It is awesome that we can get our political leaders to sit down in a public forum and spend two hours discussing Energy and Sustainability issues (some of this stuff gets pretty wonky) and that 200 people from the community will come and participate!!! This is why we love Portland. All of the candidates (Mary Nolan, Jefferson Smith, Charlie Hales, and Amanda Fritz) did a fantastic job and we wish them all the best of luck in the upcoming election. It was clear that all of the candidates truly believe in the importance of creating a more sustainable future for Portland.
We want to give a huge shout out to:
Our event MC, Chris David Harder, who did an excellent job entertaining use for the eventing
Co-host, Solar Oregon, who helped make the event such a success
