Out of control IV Drug use. Homelessness. Seriously increased crime. It might be time to… Escape from Portland.
Mayor Wheeler won’t go out with a sex scandal, but like his predecessor, he’s unable to reconcile the demands of virtue signaling in a leftist city with the practical problems caused by its implementation. The leftist solutions he’s tried, spending more on homeless services, demilitarizing and diversifying the police, have only backfired.
Property values are falling in Portland because people don’t want to spend a lot of money to deal with drug addicts, etc. (I know, who would have thought?)
