Re: “Can A Proposed Nonprofit Reverse Mayor Charlie Hales' Reforms of Last Thursday?

jesiah: If you light your house on fire on the same day at the same time every month for four months, you will absolutely be charged for the services rendered. You'll also spend some time in jail.

Re: “A Key Operative in Fluoride, Water Fights Says He's On Board for Recall Campaign

This is a bad idea and the time/money would be far better spent fighting the fee and/or finding a quality candidate to run against Novick/Hales when the time comes, but I don't think signature gathers would have to stray too far from truth to sell this one.

Re: “Can A Proposed Nonprofit Reverse Mayor Charlie Hales' Reforms of Last Thursday?

I don't think enforcing laws which already exist really qualify as "reforms." Collecting fees for an event that costs the city money and knowing the most basic information about the vendors making money on said event seems like a baseline for a street fare which is already permitted to run afoul of city regulations.

The notion that there's some city hall jackboot stomping the life out of an event that would be in no way substantively harmed by reasonable rule enforcement, which every other event in the city seems able to function under without issue, is an odd one, even for Portland.

Re: “Good Morning, News!

Perhaps it's just PR, but many reports say ISIS is great to have around for about a month ... then the blood starts to flow.

Re: “Town Hall on Street Fee (the One for Businesses) Moves to Larger Location

Hales/Novick using an 8 AM start in a cavernous room as a backdrop for their "few showed up to testify so we assume that means no one has a problem with the street tax" defense. Novick already used a version of this tactic in his childish response to Nick Fish.
