State Representative Jason Conger of Bend is holding a major grassroots event Saturday.
Conger says there are over 100 volunteers that have stepped up to help him canvass bend neighborhoods to get his message out, and this one is turning out to be huge. "This is not our first walk. We’ve been out going door to door pretty much every weekend since April. But this will be, we think, our biggest walk. In terms of just the number of people who are lending their hand in the effort. So we're very excited about it. We think this may very well be one of the biggest volunteer efforts in any Central Oregon legislative race ever."
Conger says some volunteers for Tim Knopp will also help out and maybe a few other candidates.
The group is meeting at Jewell Elementary School at 10:30 Saturday morning. Lunch will be provided.
