Women Democrats holding program on measures

The Willamette Women Democrats will kick off their monthly programs Sept. 10 with Battle at the Ballot Box, a discussion of three of seven measures Oregon voters will decide in the Nov. 4 election.

Measures to be discussed are the Oregon Safe Driver Law and driver’s cards for people who can’t prove they are documented; the Oregon Opportunity Initiative to create a constitutionally dedicated investment fund to increase student aid grants; and the Top-Two Primary Initiative, which would create open primaries in Oregon.

The program will be take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at Oswego Lake Country Club, 20 Iron Mountain Blvd. in Lake Oswego.
