|On the Scene|

Founded in 1920, the League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed participation in government. A few dozen members of the Portland chapter and their guests gathered in the Board Room at the Multnomah County Building on March 8 for the group's monthly meeting. Men and women of all ages (though admittedly mostly older) buzzed excitedly about the month's chosen topic: "The Oregon and Portland Economy--What's the Story?" Although many depressing statistics were tossed around, the outlook remained positive as industry experts and prominent local CEOs gave a check-up on the Portland region's economic health.
