Is the Clackamas Business Alliance Composed of Racketeers?

October 1, 2011

OPINION by A Clackamas Friend:  If anyone wonders how Clackamas County was taken over by Portland liberals Lynn Peterson, Ann LIninger, Jim Bernard, Jamie Damon & Charlotte Lehan just look at the Portland Racket that operates as the Clackamas Business Alliance.

It is the regional gang helping to block public votes and line their pockets.  They have a voter’s pamphlet statement supporting the Commissioner’s sham competing measure that was so misleading that a judge threw out their ballot title they wrote.

They have nothing to offer Clackamas County but the Portland planning regime that benefits their own interests.  Clackamas County has no integrity being a contributing member to this racket.

It’s essentially all government and those at the trough, making millions off the Portland/TriMet/Metro agenda. All dues paying members. Which means it is nearly entirely tax funded, one way or the other.
