If you're between the ages of 45 and 65 and a Portland resident, you might be getting call soon from the Recall Sam Adams Committee
Chief recall petitioner Jasun Wurster says the committee is getting ready to sign a contract with a company that will call an estimated 50,000 Portlanders in that age bracket in hopes of finding volunteers to gather signatures on recall petitions.
"A lot of these people are just entering retirement and have a lot of disposable time," Wurster says of the target audience.
Wurster estimates the contract will cost the campaign account
about $4,000. The group wanting to recall Adams needs all the help it can get — Wurster estimated this morning that volunteers have collected about 4,500 signatures, well short of the 32,183 valid signatures they need to turn in by the Oct. 5 deadline.
