If you’re looking to get involved, there’s a lot happening this week. On Tuesday, President You-didn’t-build-that Obama is swinging through Portland as part of his let’s-not-build-that campaign.
Americans for Prosperity will be holding a counter protest to support coal miners who are being attacked by the green regime.
The rally will start at 11:00 a.m. at the South Park Blocks between SW Columbia and SW Clay on SW 9th.
