I'm not feeling it
Here's an interesting profile of Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone, in today's Willamette Weed.
I see enough there not to like that at this point, I'm inclined to hold my nose and vote for Wheeler. According to the story:
- Portland State urban planning expert – strike 1.
- Throws "Ph.D." around as a credential, with various qualifiers, when she doesn't actually have one – strike 2.
- Wants a municipal wi-fi network and a city-run bank – strike 3.
- Multiple years of not paying taxes – strike 4.
It goes on. I'll stop there. Ted is a drag, but I don't see Ms. Iannarone as an improvement. She's an uncomfortably risky proposition at best.
There’s enough momentum against the police union now that she wouldn’t add much there. And that would be the only reason even to consider voting for her.
