It is our great pleasure to introduce Tara Sulzen as the next Executive Director of the Oregon Bus Project.
As we approach such an important election cycle here in Oregon, the leadership of the Bus Project couldn’t be more important. After an exhaustive national search, we are confident that we couldn’t have found a better fit than Tara. She brings with her a compelling vision for the Bus, a passion for engaging volunteers and young leaders, as well as a deep understanding of the project’s tradition of hands-on democracy.
Like many of us, Tara got her political start with the Bus Project, and has been a dedicated organizer ever since. Tara has shown incredible leadership in her roles at 1000 Friends of Oregon and the Urban Sustainability Accelerator at Portland State University, and has been a strong voice for her generation in Oregon politics.
Tara will officially be taking the reins as Executive Director on October 15th, and we will invite everyone to come and meet (and grill) Tara. We’d like to warn you in advance that she will be asking all our supporters, young and old, to sign up to volunteer and share your insights in return.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and for helping lead the Bus into its next exciting chapter.
