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…. where you’ll find your tribe if you love local government, innovation, and great ideas.

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

A gift card to The Hollywood Theatre, Portland’s best cinema. Where else can you find 1970s Kung Fu movies shown in original 35 millimeter prints?

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

Any of the classic 1960s soul stars:

  • James Brown
  • Aretha Franklin
  • Otis Reading
  • Martha Raye
  • Sam Cooke

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

I live here and always enjoy stopping every during while cycling to and from my downtown office to watch The Belmont Goats in Southeast Portland.

(Complete the sentence) I feel old……. whenever I reference anything from more than 10 years ago. And that happens a lot to someone like me in his 50s.
