Do Heroes really work here?
Heroes Work Here," a sign in front of Center Garage tells anyone who ventures through the front doors. Are we? It doesn't feel like it. We're simply pawns in a much bigger game than our work is given credit for. https://t.co/wq6R8xSi6z— Al M (@AlYourPalster) June 21, 2020

TRIMET scanner calls-June 16
Unaccountable Trimet technocracy marches on
According to the lawsuit, because TriMet is a public body, the decision to suspend cash payments should have been made in public. Instead, Kessler’s lawsuit states, the transit agency decided to stop receiving cash at a private meeting of agency officials. https://t.co/cbHMtUShb3— Al M (@AlYourPalster) June 17, 2020

Would people actually vote yes to build more light rail?
I watched the meeting where these career technocrats talked about carefully wording the measure to maximize its effectiveness on an ignorant public So you never know.
Obviously it helps no one but the technocrats, engineers, planners, and construction contractors. Alas These professional liars are Highly skilled at fooling the public

I work in public transit.— Thomas Palmer (@c_corax77) June 5, 2020
Given what I’ve seen happen at protests, both here in Portland,and around the country, I cannot depend on a police response to a situation aboard my vehicle to be forthright and respectful.
And that shakes me.
I know how many times we ask for help.
