Prepare for #ELGL14 by learning about who is attending. Find out if you’ll be surrounded by soft talkers, loud eaters, and finger biters or whether you’ll be surrounded by the best in local government.

(Complete the sentence) #ELGL14 is…

…an incredible opportunity to meet up & comers or those who are already there, hobnobbing at the same event.  It’s better than a live tweet.

Registration for #ELGL14 cost $60. If you could use that $60 to buy something else, what would you buy?

City of Durham yard waste services?  Retire in Portland by age 35? Most likely would spend it on professional headshots that I wouldn’t be getting for free since I wouldn’t be attending #ELGL14.

If #ELGL14 spun off into a music festival, what bands (dead or alive) would you like to see?

I would like to reconvene the lineup from Wayne’s World II: Waynestock, anyone?



During your time in Portland for #ELGL14, how do you plan on “Keeping Portland Weird?”

I might just have to rental a double-tall bicycle & ride around town with a (faux, of course) fur coat on, seeking out a route determined by vegan donuts and gluten-free beer.

(Complete the sentence) I feel old when……

The style from the 90’s is walking all around me.  Seriously, how has it been long enough for the 90’s style to return??  I was still getting used to it being gone!
