Last Month’s News. This Month’s Plans.

Endorsement Policy, Inner Southeast Action Follow-Up, and New Meeting Structure

On Oct. 14th, the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association had a very productive board meeting. The board voted on a new endorsement process which we will work into the SNA bylaws and post to the SNA website in the coming month(s). Vincent Dawans, SNA Treasurer, provided a very thorough financial report of the SNA funds. A vote passed giving committee chairs the authorization to oversee budget spending for committee’s finances (with clear limitations). The organization hosted Doug Klotz from Inner Southeast Action! to follow up his September presentation on the petition to “Save the Fred Meyer Hawthorne Pedestrian Entrance!” Fred Meyer has reopened the Hawthorne Blvd. entrance. If you’d like to support ISEA’s efforts to ensure that the doors stay open, you can sign their petition at (Save the Fred Meyer Hawthorne Pedestrian Entrance!). Lastly, we have restructured our monthly meetings. Starting in November, the general meeting will be from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., followed by the board meeting from 8:00 – 9.00 p.m.

Join us at our November’s SNA general meeting when Johanna Brenner will talk to us about the Portland Committee on Community-Engaged Policing (PCCEP). An article is provided in this issue which further speaks on the endorsement request. The November meeting will be on Thursday the 11th. Meeting details and the agenda will be posted on the SNA website ( on Monday the 8th. We encourage you to join us and get involved with your local community. Civic duty is a lot of fun!
