Inside Washington County with Rob Solomon is an interview series designed to bring Washington County residents the information they need to fully engage with issues in their community. Like other counties in the Metro area, we have our own issues and concerns separate from those in Portland.
We interview community leaders, providers of services, community advocates, and others to bring you information you can use. You’ll hear from the decision makers in government, politicians, and advocates striving for change. You’ll learn about programs and activities.
Tune in to the interviews, tune in to your community!
