    Dear Michael,

    Way back in 2011 our group began a Chamber of Commons. We may have written to you at that time. We are located in Ashland, Oregon and felt it was an idea whose time had come. Although I did envision our Chamber of Commons as the beginning of a national movement, our progress has been slow but steady and I’m glad to see that efforts in Chicago have been revived.

    Of course we’d like to collaborate with your group and be included in the October 10th promotion. I’ve been unable to find a phone number for you or anyone connected to this, so please give me a call at 541 535-1854. We have a couple publications including a brochure that gives insight into our thoughts on the commons. My experience with the Chamber of Commons concept might of use to the bigger effort.
