The board of directors of the Tom McCall Legacy Project have decided to postpone the Tom McCall Festival, originally announced for 2014, to 2015. Lisa Nowak, board president, said the group is focusing its energies on qualifying a measure to designate the former governor’s birthday as Tom McCall Day on the November 2014 ballot. “We’re a small group,” Nowak said, “and although there’s been a lot of enthusiasm for the concept of the festival, it just proved to be too big a project to pull off successfully in the time frame we had allowed ourselves.” The Tom McCall Legacy Project will continue its broader fundraising, education and outreach efforts, in addition to promoting the petition campaign.
