Happy Holidays and here is who's running for Portland City council and striving to qualify for public funding. All of the people running so far who are seeking public funding are running for Dan Salzman's seat.
If you believe that publicly-funded elections are the way to go, then please get yourself the correct (triplicate form) from one of these fine candidates and send/give them your $5 contribution with the form.

I've listed the websites in this fashion so folks can easily cut and paste this information and inform their friends about this opportunity to support these candidates' efforts, and publicly-financed elections!
I know how hard it is to campaign for public office, thanks to all those who put themselves out there.
Full Disclosure: I'm helping Spencer Burton with some social-networking for his campaign.
Happy holidays, everyone in the BlueOregon community, Albert
PS - if any of the candidates mentioned would like to include other information than what I've listed here, please add that to the comments section.
