As Per the change in the bylaws in the spring, my term as chairman will expire with the commencement of this meeting, so we will need to decide who should take over as chair of the Portland greens. I will not seek another term as I intend to run for office in November.
Please tell any and all registered Greens about this meeting, I will attempt to call folks who have come to meetings in the past, although I unfortunately do not have a comprehensive phone list.
