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….. Like a warm breeze on a summer day… where I long for more but know that winter is on its way

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

Tom Petty tickets or three pairs of smart wool socks.

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


Dr. John, Stevie Wonder, The Traveling Wilburys, Mark Knopfler, Chuck Prophet, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, Geoff Muldaur, Ry Cooder, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Doc Watson, Justin Townes Earle, Nina Simone, Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers and Mark Hanson.

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

I assume the conference is clothing optional?

(Complete the sentence) I feel old when…… I look forward to getting up early on Saturday morning.
