Last week, I wrote about the campaign to bring an elected-mayor system to Portland.
Earlier this week, Cheryl Leeman and the Citizens to Retain Responsible Government held a press conference stating their opposition to such a proposal. They cited cost as their primary concern, saying that establishing such an office would cost about $150,000; the Elect Our Mayor; Yes on One campaign said the elected mayor's $60,000 salary would be "very modest."
A municipal-election issue that's actually kind-of interesting!??! omgspacetimevortex
