Your taxpayers dollars are paying for this PR campaign so that you vote for the proposed 2020 bond measure that will if passed will send your property tax bill to new high!  This entire report is “FAKE NEWS” on so many levels that one must think all creating this report must be smoking some good pot or they have vested interest in getting into your wallet; maybe both!  TriMet is under Metro, who care less about facts that contradict TriMet statistics.  The agenda of pushing this folly is (approximately$300BILLION) is just getting started.  Just note that most all the officials who are for this do NOT ride or use public transportation.  Their guiding principle can summed up in the following sentence “Mass transit is for the other guy so I can drive my car faster.”  Eric Severeid said this over 40 years ago and it is still true today.   So it goes... Two Bells.
