Every multnomah county commissioners gets paid $117 thousand dollars a year. I know that isn't the same as a doctor gets paid, but it is significantly more than all the families in Multnomah county who are low income or poverty level. The same families economically impacted by school closures and business closures, are the ones told to follow these orders, are the ones told schools must stay closed. But one commissioners thinks its pretty okay to vacation in Hawaii while telling her constituents to follow these rules. Commissioner meieran.
So, why aren't these public servants withholding their tax covered salary? They have the luxery of getting this passive income simply serving on a baord for the county while forcing mandates that prevent poor families from making money.
How can you even support that?
