OPINION: Sharing your views will help shape our state

The best part of my job is hearing from the Oregonians who participate in our monthly surveys.

These "panelists" from all over the state share their thoughts and opinions on a wide variety of topics, including everything from whether Oregonians should be able to pump their own gas to how hopeful they feel about the future to whether they think the people running their community care about what happens to them.
