Want an Oregon office of the PTO?

Do you wish you could work for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, but in or near lovely Portland, Oregon?  Or perhaps BendEugene?

Government benefits, Mt. Hood, the Coast, the desert, adventures in the Gorge, Voodoo Doughnuts.  What could be better?

Join Oregon Senator Ron Wyden in his effort to bring a PTO satellite office to Oregon, by sending a letter of support to by Monday, January 30, 2012 (that’s next Monday).

For details, see this letter.
