Pacific University invites the public to the Forest Grove Campus on Wednesday, April 19 to participate in a pair of interactive civic events beginning in the late afternoon.
Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum will share her observations and plans in light of the political climate following last fall’s general election with a talk titled "Oregon's Place Post 2016 Election" at 5 p.m. in McGill Auditorium, located on the east side of campus adjacent to Cedar Street.
A reception will kick off the gathering at 4:30 p.m., and Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation director Jim Moore will moderate a audience question-and-answer session following the attorney general's remarks.
At 6:30 p.m., the university will host a Forest Grove School Board Candidate Forum in the Multipurpose Room on the lower level of the University Center. Presented by Pacific’s McCall Center, Forest Grove News-Times and the Forest Grove/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce, the forum will feature a panelist of News-Times journalists asking questions of incumbents John Hayes, Lonnie Winkler and Charless Waterman, and challengers Brad Bafaro, Mark Everett, Fallon Harris and Valyrie Ingram. The forum will also allow attendees to submit questions for the candidates.
Rosenblum’s appearance is co-sponsored by the university’s College Democrats chapter, centers for Gender Equity and Peace & Spirituality and the McCall Center.
