Pam Brown Appears

Six people gathered around two tables slid together at the Random Order Cafe earlier this evening, as the sun gave a multi-colored show in the west before departing for the day.

The usual suspects, Dave Westerlund, Charlotte Miller, Herschel Soles, and Your Intrepid Reporter and Secretary to the Chapter, were joined by Pam Brown and her daughter Lovena.  Introductions all around.

Pam, invited to comment on behavior of secretary during her stay at Chapter headquarters, avers the place has an unnecessarily adversarial air.  Secretary predicted no change in his own behavior.  Mother and daughter departed.

Charlotte expressed very great reserve over the course of action the secretary has undertaken, with a single mother resident at headquarters.  She is willing to go on record that the Chapter secretary is ruining his life.

Herschel S. commits to attending the special meeting of the Citizens Review Committee called for by the director of the Independent Police Review Board, Constantine Severe, to be convened in the evening of Wednesday, 30 March 2016.  Herschel says he plans to appear half an hour early to get first crack at the pizza.

Dave W. predicts Clinton will be next President of US; secretary bet a bottle of champagne, to be drunk at a future meeting (Charlotte approved, pointing out she gets to drink the bubbly no matter who wins or loses the bet), that Clinton won’t make it to the so-called White House.   This was at 7:15.

Herschel reported to the group about his attendance at a locally-written and -acted play, Breaking Ranks, at the Eastside theater Teatro Milagro, where the focus turned on gender oppression in the military.  Herschel’s contribution from the audience of the small community theater sparked a discussion about soldiers having to suffer the trauma, just of being soldiers.  Herschel and Dave both, it turns out, served in ROTC and the military, but Dave had the good sense to be convicted of refusing orders and so passed two years in the same federal penitentiary where, more than a decade later, the secretary enjoyed the accommodations.

Charlotte effective immediately has taken custody of the Chapter Treasury and promises to provide donation opportunity at future meetings.

The meting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Michael Meo, secretary

Cascadia Chapter of the Pacific Green Party of Oregon

Update  11 March:  The meeting of the CRC is on 30 March at 5:30 pm, Room 300 in the so-called Portland Building, the one with the large woman purportedly representing the life-giving river bisecting our burgh.
