I liked the guy a lot.
We had some good times together.
It appears he has been spending tax payers money in vain.
And he's not in Portland where the money flows like water, he's in Arizona which doesn't take kindly to democratic spending principles. The local paper did an actual investigation (something they don't do around here) into his spending habits and voilà, it turns out he's acting like a transit executive.I'd sure like to know what those extra checks to Mcfarlane totalling $10k+ were for.
This man occupies various offices whereby he reports to himself? Can that happen?

Interestingly enough Mcfarlane has hired the ousted COO of Vancouver Metro's organization, Doug Kelsey. (and raised the salary of course) Why is that interesting? Because Kelsey was thrown out of his job because the public had lost faith in the transit system up in Vancouver . To make a long story short, the public didn't trust Kelsey so he had to go. You can read a couple of articles about Kelsey HERE and HERE and there is a video of the man below the break. He sure has the Canadian accent but does he have a green card?

Yes its Earl Blumenaur, the Don of the light rail mafia. A key figure in getting pork from the federal government, now trying to keep things rolling along here in Portland. This guy will have his congressional seat for life because there is never a challenge against him. His carefully scripted "show" is a beautiful thing to watch. With his "nice guy act" and his "bicycle pin" he exemplifies the Portland myth. His schtick goes unchallenged in the mainstream media. Trimet just got a tax increase in case you forgot. But that's not enough for the light rail mafia, they need YOUR MONEY! AS MUCH OF YOURS AS THEY CAN GET!

The good thing about the design of the MAX is that when stuff like this happens they ALWAYS can blame the victim and not the design. Pretty ingenious if you ask me

Neil's got his buddies and he likes giving them nice jobs. Bob here was supposed to improve service and we all know now that nothing has improved, if anything service has gotten worse. The scuttlebutt around Trimet is that Bob will be taking over for Mcfarlane when his contract runs out, which is next July. Bob was supposed to be "temporary". We know how that goes around Trimet. No need to be honest about things, nobody can touch any of them no matter how much they lie to the public
