Conjunto

Interesting musical form, emanating out of Mexico and on the border. Don't know its origin, but its suffix -junto is from the same root as junta. What does this have to do with anything? Nothing and everything. It is likely that the "position paper" on PERS may have originated in some discussion of PERS at a relatively new "club" called Junto that has 42 members, all prominent Portland/Oregon Democrats. Membership includes some of our favorite people including Greg Macpherson and, surprise, surprise, Phil Kiesling. The group was organized by someone I've known for a long time. If you are interested in this group, you might want to Google the word "junto" and find an October issue of Willamette Weekly with an article by Nigel Jacquiss on this not-so-public group. I suspect we'll be hearing more policy proposals emerging from this group. The membership includes an awful lot of familiar and not-so-familiar names. Beware.

The Junto Society Page is just another Honey Bucket full of reight wing caca-doody! Keisling belongs to that?

Try this page:

. There are lots of Junto Societies in the US. Our local version doesn't have its own page. Our version will have some familiar names, all Oregon D's from the general Portland metro area.
