The future of the Sellwood Bridge...

 In a few hours we’ll know a lot about the future of Clackamas County.

Our Sellwood Bridge is one of the most structurally unsound bridges in the country, and is literally falling to pieces. Will we be able to afford to rebuild it?

Will the 30,000 of us who cross the Sellwood Bridge daily have to cope if the bridge collapses? Or will we step up and protect this vital piece of our transportation infrastructure.

And will we let the far right and irresponsible tea-party activists run roughshod over the safety of Clackamas County families? Or can we come together as a community and do the right thing.

The OLCV and prominent community and business leaders urge you to VOTE YES on Clackamas County Measure 3-372 because rebuilding the Sellwood Bridge is critical to the safety and economic vitality of our region.

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. tonight, but it’s too late to mail them. If you haven’t voted, please take a few minutes to vote and then.

This election is too important to sit out. If we can come together as a community and vote YES for a safe Sellwood Bridge, then we will create jobs, maintain an important piece of our infrastructure and economy, and look out for the safety of Clackamas County families.

 Please don’t forget to vote by 8 p.m. tonight at a ballot drop box near you, and to vote YES on Clackamas County Measure 3-372.
