TRIMET BOARD MEMBER TIFFANY SWIETZER RUNNING ILLEGAL PARKING LOT

The TRIBUNE has published a story which implicates one of our BOARD MEMBERS in the operation of an illegal parking lot.


What's wrong with Tiffany Sweitzer?
 For the last four meetings she has left the meetings as soon as the public testimony begins. We are sure she is a very busy woman, but never hanging around to hear the public comments shows a complete lack of empathy for the transit riding population. If she feels she is too busy to actually attend the meetings to the end then maybe she should resign or be replaced.

Permits I'm not sure it's known why it wasn't pursued back in 2008. There's some other complaints for overgrowth and weeds, too. Overall, I think the real problem may be that properties with no buildings on them get charged at a low rate. This means that owners can be discouraged from building, and that the carrying cost is low. Specifically, taxes on the lot are only about $12,000. Even if that is for only a quarter of the block, it just requires 10 cars @ $100 a month (which is what I think the rate was) to pay for them. http://www.portlandmaps.com/detail.cfm?propertyid=R541382&action=Assessor

Could we please pass some sort of Legistration so these board positions are elected by transit users instead of appointed by corrupt governors? Who do we know that could do this?
