erik

[Reposted from my blog at http://hillsboroerik.com .] When I first started writing this series on the politically biased, racist, logically confused, and embarrassing “White Privilege”-based Equity training materials used by many public school districts, including Hillsboro, earlier this summer, I wasn’t planning to write this article.    After all, if you have read my previous blogs, […]

How Local Government Works – Or Doesn’t – Might Just Make Your Head Explode

  [5440 note: this is an adaptation of a presentation given by the author at the TechRoanoke Conference in Bellevue, WA, June 2014] There is a battle on for the soul of the GOP. But to clarify, I’m NOT going to be talking about the 800lb gorilla in the room. The factional infighting, the purity […]

  • Roads Face Funding Crisis in King County’s Unincorporated Areas April 17, 2015
    During the recession, property values fell almost 40 percent. They’ve since risen, but property taxes have not rebounded because state law only allows them to rise 1% a year. At that rate, it’ll take the county at least 40 years to shake off the recession’s grip. The post Roads Face Funding Crisis in King County’s […]

  • The Future of Oil April 17, 2015
    Bloomberg argues that “supply alone is [not] behind the plunge in crude prices to $50 a barrel.” Instead, demand for motor fuel has slacked off due to lack of growth in driving combined with more fuel-efficient cars and more competitive electric cars. The electric cars argument is specious, as too few of them have been […]
  • Oregon’s Next Bad Idea April 16, 2015
    Oregon’s House of Representatives passed a bill to legalize inclusionary zoning.

Inclusionary zoning requires home builders […]
