I don't think saying 'Criticize CRC Spending' is accurate as 'Criticize CRC Waste'.

If this was your bank or insurance company wasting tens of millions on a project, PM would be going ballistic. Before you go off with an ad hominem attack, why don't you watch a detailed presentation of the waste happening? It is your money being wasted after all.

Let's see if the view count goes above 163, I doubt it.

When did the president of Plaid Pantry become some kind of authority on anything other than the cost of Slim Jims?

Have you heard his testimony? Girard's actually quite knowledgable about the CRC, as it's directly affecting his business.

This isn't just a bridge, it's a 12 lane, 9 mile long freeway expansion into the heart of downtown Portland.

Yeah, how does this thing help Portland? Kill the bridge, and spend the money in Portland, it does absolutely nothing for us.

"Kill the bridge, and spend the money in Portland, it does absolutely nothing for us."

It's not Portland's money to spend. It's state and federal money. The city of Portland isn't kicking in much.

And that's what people fail to understand: this is a multi-state issue. It's not all about Portland.

Chuck, the money isn't all about Portland, but the impact, the downstream repercussions of widening that flow of freeway traffic into the heart of Portland... That's all about Portland.
