If appearances hold and Democrat John Kitzhaber resigns as Oregon Governor, what will the next administration look like under Democrat Kate Brown?

Despite strong support for basic, common sense laws ensuring the integrity of the vote across the country (see here, here, here, here and here), the Left continues to insist that requiring positive identification and verification of eligibility before voting is somehow suppressive, racist and and an evil plot to steal elections for Conservatives. Few public […]

Kate Brown, Oregon’s Secretary of State, REALLY Steps In It

3-19-12_SOSpage

The rumors around Salem are that Kate Brown is not exactly known for her attention to detail. The fiasco surrounding the change to the election of Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) only goes to prove that conclusively. Last night the story broke that Kate Brown had, at the last minute, enforced […]

If you have suggestions on what to add, we’d […]

    More than five years ago, our Seattle-based partnership began the long and thorough process of developing the SODO Arena.  Our sole focus is to bring the NBA and NHL back to Seattle. We believe our proposal to build a privately funded, state-of-the-art Arena at the southern end of Seattle’s zoned Stadium District, directly south of […]

  • Reason #3 to Stop Subsidizing TransitFew Use It and Fewer Need It April 25, 2017
    In 1960, when most of the nation’s transit was private (and profitable), 7.81 million people took transit to work. By 2015, the nation’s working population had grown by nearly 130 percent, and taxpayers had spent well over a trillion dollars improving and operating urban transit systems. Yet the number of people taking transit to work […]
  • The Rail Transit Money Pit April 24, 2017
    After more than a year of shut-downs, slow-downs, and break-downs, the Washington Metro rail system still faces a huge maintenance backlog.

  • Reason #2 to Stop Subsidizing TransitSubsidies Haven’t Increased Ridership April 21, 2017
    In 2015, the American Public Transportation Association issued a press release whose headline claimed that transit ridership in 2014 achieved a new record. However, the story revealed that 2014 ridership was the highest since 1956. That’s no more a record than if it was the highest since 2013. The truth is that America’s urban population […]
