César E. Chávez disliked illegal immigrants since they broke his Unions picket lines (sometimes leading to violent reactions from Union members). The biggest problem with this entire fiasco is that there has been NO EDUCATION about who César E. Chávez was, what he stood for, what he accomplished or his failures.
CECBC is a political action group who are intent on flexing their political muscle with complete disregard for the city's laws, its residents wishes, and César E. Chávez himself. They are incapable of Honoring anyone.
Change the name of Division Street !!! - all the way through Gresham.
After all the name is divisive by definition.
The committee can make it a project of unity and financially affect as many people as possible and in two city's, that will get them the attention they want. Last time around the committee did nothing to educate anyone about why César Chávez should be recognized or how his work affects anyone who just happens to eat food. So they must want the attention for themselves.
Where was the City Auditor last year when the council agreed, behind closed doors, to subvert the city's code? Oh yea, he was too busy running the Sam Adams election.
As I said last time around: Name NEW Streets. Portland has the largest urban development in the country right now, we are building new area's and streets. Let's start were is has the least financial impact on our residents during this downward economy.
This shit again - fuck.
Let's see if ANY of the City's laws will be followed this time.
(what do you call it when politician's subvert the law for personal and political gain?)
