How to Get Elected Mayor of Portland

November 7, 2012

Take a Winning Position on Things that Matter

1. Come out big time about neighborhood preservation.

In 2002, Oregonians In Action gathered signatures to place the Neighborhood Preservation Act on the ballot. Metro counciller, Rex Burkholder created a ‘s fake preservation act to trick voters into NOT voting for the real preservation act (see: The fake act passed by 65% ( add a reasonable guess  at the number of people who voted only for the real neighborhood preservation, probably 75% of the people voted for an end to increased neighborhood densities.  Those are the same sorts of victories been seen at the ballot box in Clackamas County opposing smart growth moves.

The recent rebellion against no on site parking condo bunkers (see: shows continuing support for preserving our neighborhoods from un-needed high density.

2.  Add in a promise to stop taking money from schools, social services, police to finance pet projects with Urban Renewal.

3. Add in weekly garbage collection.

4. By the time of the next Mayor race (2016), climate change will probably be totally debunked and can be used as an example of massive government waste caused by government abandoning its core mission.

Unfortunately Portland politicians are too deluded by the greenies  and are mostly just more smart growth idiots who wants to force their religion on the rest of us.

    Ummm…It seems to me that the only people that could get elected mayor of Portland was a party boy and an establishment king.

    Politics as usual in Portland. It’s all insiders all the time

      The question is how bad things have to get before people make a financially rational choice.
      Note that Eileen got caught being less than honest about her part in Whole Foods. That might have made the difference.
