Dear friends :
We are happy to report tonight that Sam Adams is regaining his confidence and is determined to stay in office.Ãƒâ€š Throughout the day, I have received emails of support and encouragement by nearly 100 of you — from Academy Award nominee-Gus Van Sant to First Lady of Oregon Mary Oberst.**
We are now going forward with our press conference, to be held today (Friday) @ noon @ City Hall on the SW 4th Avenue side.Ãƒâ€š Not to be confused with the rally of support @ 5:30pm, this press conference will feature community leaders and elected officials with the important message that there is a lot of work to do in our city, that we should remain calm and not rashly cry out for the mayor's resignation.Ãƒâ€š This press conference will also be an opportunity for people to express their personal support for Mayor Adams should they choose.Ãƒâ€š At the very least, we must remain unified in our support for the agenda set forth by the Mayor.
Please let other community leaders know about this press conference.
Now is the hour.
with best wishes : Thomas M. Lauderdale, Victoria Frey, Stephen Cassell & Paul King.
**Update 1/25: Pete Forsyth sent this over to us: an open letter to the media, re: Sam Adams. In case you were wondering (you were not), we are not opinion media…our opinion is simply “More events and more free passes to said events”
