Portland is a PR machine for light rail & streetcar

Here are Some Facts About Portland Oregon          

“It must always be remembered how cost-effectiveness works in the public sector: the cost IS the benefit.” - author unknown

Here’s Why Portland Loves Light Rail
If anyone doubts that the "fix" is in, they ought to know that the Portland planner type heading up the "Barbur Corridor Pl;an" was selected by a panel on which the SWNI President (and PBOT Budget Advisory Committee member) Marianne Fitzgerald was one of the three folks selecting the lead planner, Jay Sugnet. The other folks on the selection group were PDX planning and Transportation bureaucrats.

Then, when the citizens / "stakeholder" "Community Working Group" group was selected, Fitzgerald and lead planner, Jay Sugnet, carefully skewed the advisory group selection to exclude those who questioned rail, preferring more bus service.

Portland - the city that works you over and over and over.
