Portland Survey Shows Voter Priorities?

To All COLA LO Members,

In a recent survey Portland residents overwhelmingly told local government that they want their City Council to focus on core services and stop spending in specific areas. 

In a response that was very similar to the Streetcar?transportation survey Streetcar Survey voters are illustrating a strong set of priorities which does not conform to the direction taken by their elected representatives.   

The details can be found a new article in the Oregonian this week Portland Should Fix Streets

The results were insightful in that residents favored reducing expenditures on light rail and bike lanes which is a direct rejection of the current direction in both Portland and Lake Oswego.   

It seems the voters have a clearly defined set of priorities.  

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
