Becoming Elected to Office at Cedar Mill Library

The Washington County Public Affairs Forum is hosting former Congresswoman Elizabeth Furse on Tuesday April 5 at 7:00 PM in the Cedar Mill Library upstairs meeting room.

One of the best ways to make a difference in your community, your state, the nation and internationally is to get elected and make your voice heard. Come and hear how it’s done and learn that you don’t have to be a millionaire.

Elizabeth Furse was elected to the U.S. Congress by being involved and getting grassroots support. She had never run for office prior to running for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992. She wanted to change the nation’s budget priorities and decided to see if she could be elected. To her great surprise, as she says, she was elected and as a freshman was able to get a big cut in the inflated Pentagon budget and to obtain the funding for West Side Light Rail to Hillsboro.

There will be time for questions and answers and Public Affairs Forum members will be on hand. Come and hear how you, too, can be elected and make a difference.
