I will be hosting the cable access TV show for the Clackamas County Democrats this evening (Tuesday, Feb 15). I will have two guests, Meredith Wood Smith, Vice Chair of the Democratic Party of Oregon and State Senator Rick Metsger. In the Portland metro area, the show is seen live on cable channel 11 and in Clackamas County it is shown live on channels 11 and 23. More details below.
I would like to ask readers to submit questions that I may pose to our guests.
Also, I encourage readers to make comments about the show, while it is on the air "live" so that we can start an online dialogue about the topics we are discussing on the show.
My goal is to start a cable access show here in Multnomah County and then take it to a statewide audience.
The Clackamas Co. Dems have graciously given me this TV forum to get some practice with and to get familiar with the format. I look forward to the input of BlueOregon readers on what that type of show would look like and what it would discuss.
Thanks to all and hope you can participate!
