Delegates to the Northwest Oregon Labor Council voted Sept. 25 to endorse Portland Community College Bond Measure 26-196, which will appear on the ballot in an election Nov. 7.
If approved, the measure would not increase the tax rate, because it is a renewal of an expiring bond, passed by voters in 2000. The tax rate is currently 40 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
The bond money would provide $185 million in funding to be directed toward constructing job training facilities, and to expand and modernize technology and equipment.
Ballots will be mailed starting Friday, Oct. 20. Ballots must be received at your county elections office or official drop site location by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, to be counted. Postmarks do not count.
