GREEN PRESIDENTIAL TICKET TO VISIT OREGON
David Cobb and Pat LaMarche, the Green Party's presidential and vice presidential candidates, will make separate visits to Oregon in early October.
LaMarche, a radio broadcaster, nonprofit foundation director and single mother of two, will be in Portland on October 1 as part of her two week long "Left Out Tour," in which LaMarche will sleep in a dozen homeless shelters and on the streets to highlight the challenges facing people living on the margins of society. LaMarche is also using the tour to raise donations of needed items---such as blankets and children's books-for shelters.
Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb will be in Portland and Corvallis on October 4. Cobb will hold a press conference in Portland, meet with The Oregonian and Willamette Week for endorsement interviews, meet with supporters and hold other events still to be announced. That evening, Cobb will be the featured speaker at the "Rock and Register" event in Corvallis, at the Odd Fellows Hall, from 7-11 p.m. Several local bands will play and local Pacific Green Party candidates will join Cobb in speaking. People who register to vote at the event or who present a voter registration card will be admitted at a discounted rate.
Interviews with Pat LaMarche can be arranged by contacting Marnie Glickman at 503.313.7919. To schedule an interview with David Cobb, contact Blair Bobier, Cobb-LaMarche Media Coordinator, at 541.929.5755 or 414.364.1596.
