Sen. Rick Metsger is inviting Hood River County residents to “Get the Scoop” on his campaign platform Wednesday afternoon at Mike’s Ice Cream shop.
Metsger, who is seeking re-election to the District 26 seat, will arrive at 2 p.m. with his own stump. The tree base that weighs about 250 pounds even has his name carved into the wood grain.
He plans to use the traditional platform to unveil a “no waffling” agenda for future legislation.
“I am going to give specifics on issues that I believe will improve the quality of life for Oregonians,” said Metsger.
He also plans to provide historical background about the origin of the stump speeches – most given from stationary platforms.
