This just in…

Lovely event on Friday, April 8, at the Tualatin Country Club, to support an affordable housing initiative.

I was seated with a bunch of Washington County elected officials. In the middle of the first speech, Katy King texted me with the note, “Federal shut-down averted.” I wrote it on a business card and passed it to State Rep. Margaret Doherty.

She sighed, passed the card to a county commissioner. He sighed and passed it along to a city councilor. The note made it all around the table.

It was like having our own private wire service.

Best. Girlfriend. Ever!
