Honored Guest: Oregon Attorney General John Kroger
Mr. Kroger has made protection of water quality a priority, including creating the first environmental crimes unit in Oregon’s history. Mr. Kroger stated, “As Attorney General, I have pledged to do everything in my power to hold polluters accountable for the damage they cause to our air, land, water and health. I hope you will join me.” Join Mr. Kroger at CRK’s Art + Experience Auction where he will speak to kick off the live auction. This Just In! Take a tugboat tour of the Portland/Vancouver Harbors!
