MerkleySenator Merkley visits Cedar Mill

As part of his tour of Main Streets in Oregon, US Senator Jeff Merkley visited part of our Town Center on Tuesday, August 28. The Senator arrived at the Cedar Mill Community Library with an entourage of aides, and he spoke with Library Director Peter Leonard and some of his senior staff. Tour participants included our County Commissioner, Greg Malinowski, CPO 1 Chair Bruce Bartlett, CMBA Secretary Rosalea Peters, Dan Schauer, CPO Coordinator, and yours truly.

We crossed to Leedy Grange Hall, noting the stoplight that was built with such great community support. The Senator got a better understanding of Cedar Mill’s history by viewing some of the historic photos in the Hall, and then we stopped in at Bales Thriftway where Store Manager Vince Lucibello greeted the party.

We walked over to the Bales/Findley Property Management office where Ken Findley, although he was unable to be present, had laid out drawings showing some of their development plans for the area. We finished up at the 12923 Cornell building with a quick visit to Sunset Yoga upstairs, where Nina Pileggi and one of her instructors talked about their business, and then we gathered downstairs at Pars Market for some of their homemade hummus with pita chips.

The Senator is on the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee and takes a great interest in small businesses in Oregon’s communities. It was a real privilege to help organize this visit and give the Senator a little insight into our issues.
