The Portland Business Alliance (PBA) sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) endorsing the Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and the Jordan Cove LNG project proposal. They are expecting 1200 attendees at their Annual Meeting on May 1st. This event will be one of the region’s largest gatherings of business professionals and civic leaders in 2018, and we need to be outside protesting as they come into the Oregon Convention Center. They are honoring their outgoing President and CEO, Sandra McDonough, the very same person who signed the letter to the FERC in February. Read more
