Most clubs never have any influence on the city's electorate. In Portland, an affordable membership in City Club means you can have a say in what the elected officials do!
Just $12.95 for a subscription and you have the opportunity to join other citizens whether your issue is off-leash dogs or PGE...and sit next to the powerful money folks with an EQUAL VOICE.
Who would have thunk it? By the way, the club's Friday Forum meals can be a bit spendy..about $15.00...but you don't even have to eat! Coffee meetings are just $5.00. Such a deal..coffee AND the city's gods all in one place.
