Credit Where It’s Due – The Oregonian Publishes A PERS Primer

Oregonian box

We wanted to bring the readers’ attention to a solid article posted by Jeff Mapes in The Oregonian that briefly covers the history of PERS, and why it’s currently in deep, deep trouble. The article gives a good, basic overview of Tier I and Tier II public employees, and where the burdens lie for the […]

Occupy Portland costs at $1.4 Million and rising – taxpayers on the hook

chapman lownsdale

Thank you, Mayor Sam Adams. Your steadfast refusal to apply the law equally to Occupy Portland, simply because you agree with them politically, is costing Portland residents big time. You have failed to do your job, Mr. Mayor. You have not protected Portland taxpayers from unreasonable expense. This sentence from The Portland Tribune says it […]

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union – Portlandia version

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union – Portlandia version

The stories of Water Bureau ratepayer abuse at Portland Water Bureau are legend around these parts. Wait, you might be thinking, water rates? Who cares? Well, that’s kinda the point. Not too many people pay attention, and they keep on electing the people responsible for creating slush funds with our water bill receipts. And if […]

Author’s note: This post originally appeared at http://redcounty.com/content/oregon-most-corrupt-state-union-pt-6 on Nov 2, 2010. Pertinent archives are being migrated to this new blog. Over at my buddy Max Redline’s Blog, something that will make you shake your head: Just In Time For Halloween! Metro, that sterling “regional government” had a great little money-making scheme going on – until […]

No surprise: Multnomah County one of nation’s most liberal

No surprise: Multnomah County one of nation’s most liberal

As Multnomah County goes, so goes the state of Oregon.  We have our work cut out for us! From Jeff Mapes at the Oregonian: Multnomah County is the nation’s 16th most liberal county, according to the Daily Caller. You have to figure that a county where Barack Obama beat John McCain 77 percent to 20 […]

  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget. Legislators were unable to agree on a water-rights bill to address the Supreme Court’s Hirst decision, an issue rural representatives had tried to raise repeatedly throughout the session. “We’ve never seen anything like this before, but the stakes have never […]
  • Ranker: Unconscionable that Senate Republicans blocked vote on capital budget July 21, 2017
    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]
  • Capital budget, Ryan Calkins, #dadhacks July 20, 2017
    With luck, today will be the last day of the 2017 legislative session, giving us a whopping 12 days before the August primary.  We’ve got a few data points for you, both qualitative and quantitative, on the session and the ballot box in this edition of the Morning Wire. As always, thanks for reading our […]

  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration. HUD had ordered Westchester County, New York, to build low-income housing in response to claims that county zoning led to segregated […]
  • Will Miami Settle for Modern Transportation? July 20, 2017
    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro. Both buses and laptop computers are far less expensive than rails and mainframes, but the former […]
