Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha! How are all those “sustainable and green” jobs working out for you? When are you idiots going to get rid of your bankrupt homo Mayor?

You are pathetic, thanks for not living here.
They’re working out quite well, thanks a bunch for your concern.
Obviously his sexual orientation and private life render him incapable of running a city, that’s why we kept him around.
You can go shave your back now.

Portlands mayor is a pedephile, plain and simple. and he never has had the ability to run the city. the city is backrupt under his watch in various capacities of government. the sewer overflows into the river everytime it rains but he wants to divert sewer funds to new bike paths? thats the “green” industry for portland, stealing funds that are supposed to stop pollution so he can win over the lycra crowd on wheels. lord knows he loves them teen boys in tight shorts. becoming mayor may have been a case of not who you know, but who you bl-w.
