What Really Matters to Oregonians

Three years ago, pollster Adam Davis described public opinion in Oregon as a “perfect storm,” in which an uninformed and disconnected public was unable to hold politicians accountable in any meaningful way for campaign promises. Today, with a weakened economy and government budget problems, has anything changed?

On December 11, City Club welcomes Adam Davis back to the podium to discuss trends in public opinion in Oregon. He will revisit key issues, such as public cynicism and limited knowledge, that impede civic progress and will share what Oregonians are saying about issues ranging from the economy to community planning. He will also address the areas where Oregonians remain connected to the long-time values that make our region unique.

Adam Davis is a partner at Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall, Inc. Davis has a unique perspective on the state of the public through his wide-ranging and long-standing experience as a public opinion researcher in Oregon and across the nation. His quantitative and qualitative perspective on public policy and planning projects is among the richest of anyone in Oregon. Purchase tickets at www.pdxcityclub.org or call 503-228-7231 x110.
