Episode 170: Bond, School Bond

May 13, 2020

News and More: A Canby law firm is one of two to sue the governor this week on claims that her executive orders violate business owners' constitutional rights. Also, everything fun was canceled this week: Canby's Independence Day Celebration, the Cutsforth's Cruise-In, the Big Night Out and (sob) the Clackamas County Fair. On the bright side, our old library might be turned into a bar and arcade.

Canby Conversation: On Feb. 26, the Canby School Board voted to place a 20-year, $75 million bond issue on the ballot for the May primary.

On the Canby Conversation today, an edited version of a local media availability with board member Sara Magenheimer, discussing what has changed with regard to the bond, and why it still matters.

After the Break: Speaking of stuff that matters, that electricity is pretty great, eh?
