MultCo Budget Priorities Survey

From Multnomah County Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson:

Dear friends & neighbors,

A budget is a reflection of priorities, and Multnomah County’s budget is no different. The programs and projects we invest in should be a reflection of our community’s values, concerns, and aspirations.

That’s why I’d like to solicit your top priorities. Please take a moment to identify your top concerns by filling out this survey.

With Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury scheduled to release her proposed budget on April 26th, I want to know your thoughts as we determine how best to spend the vital funding provided by hardworking taxpayers like you.

Just as last year, I’ll report back on the results, and your feedback will inform my thinking during the budget process.

You can find out more information about the county’s budget, as well as opportunities to weigh in during our budget hearings here. I encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns not only with me but also with my fellow commissioners.

Together, we can continue to make our community one we can be proud of.

Warmly,

Jessica Vega Pederson

Multnomah County Movie Screening and Community Listening Session on Mental Health

From Office of Neighborhood Involvement:

Multnomah County holding a Movie Screening & Community Listening Session on Mental Health on February 6

Due to a tremendous response to the December Community Listening Session on Mental Health, Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran is hosting another session that includes a movie screening on Tuesday, February 6. This Movie Screening & Community Listening Session on Mental Health will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the First Floor Boardroom of the Multnomah County Building at 501 S.E. Hawthorne Boulevard.

All are welcome to attend and the event is free. Seating is limited, so those who wish to attend should RSVP by February 1. The effort will be made to accommodate as many attendees as possible, but seating can only be guaranteed to those who RSVP.

The movie, Not Broken , is a one-hour documentary by Arizona Public Media about youth who have lived experience of mental illness. This event offers the opportunity to watch Not Broken as a community and share thoughts about a better mental health system. The county is especially interested in hearing about youth and family experiences. The information gathered will inform the deep analysis of the local mental health system by Multnomah County and Human Services Research Institute.

For those who wish to provide feedback about the mental health care system in Multnomah County but cannot attend the listening session, they can do so via the county’s feedback form, which will remain open until February 28.

Light snacks will be provided at the listening session, and childcare and translation services are available by request. Anyone who RSVPs should let us know if childcare, translation services, or any other accommodations are needed so that we may plan accordingly.

Anyone who has questions or needs further information may contact Commissioner Meieran by phone at 503-988-5220 or email to district1@multco.us.
