Governor Kulongski is preparing a speech right now that he will present to the City Club in Portland Friday.
It's a much anticipated address as Oregon's economy has continued to spiral downward since the Governor gave his State of the State speech in January.
The Oregonian newspaper has been somewhat critical of the Governor for not being more visible and vocal on the economy, and for not offering some solutions to avoid the same recessionary woes in the future.
A standing room only audience is expected Friday at the Governor Hotel.
I will be there in the back of the room,along with "Straight Talk" Executive Producer, Rich Kurz.
Immediately following his speech, the Governor sits down with me for a one-on-one interview to give us all some "Straight Talk" on his plans for Oregon's economy.
Join me for "Straight Talk" Saturday night at 6:30 on KGW Newschannel 8.
If you have any questions for the Governor, leave them here under "comments".
Let's keep talking,
