"Every Day This Man Stays in Office You Make a Mockery of Sex Abuse Victims"

Stunning testimony this morning before the Rainbow City Council. She left ’em speechless. Read some of her testimony and see why:

“As a concerned citizen and sexual assault survivor, I am sickened that you have not forced Mayor Adams to resign. I am deeply ashamed and saddened to be part of a community that has commissioners who week after week sit silently in support of a predator or worse, yet openly condone his behavior”


Sh
e continues to talk about her attack while in Eugene in 1992 and how the community rallied around her. “I was that eighteen year old victim of sexual assault that was the subject of those large rallies and I can tell you that there was no division in that community’s anger; it was directed solely at the perpetrator. …What if instead of a huge rally in support of me there was a big rally in support of my offender? What if my offender got to wake up every morning and continue a high profile career leading the City of Eugene in all kinds of important matters? What if my offender’s colleagues continued to work with him ‘business as usual’ as if I mattered not at all? In my opinion this has been done to Mr. Breedlove. …You see both Mr. Breedlove and I were young teens when we were used by someone for their own gratification and then discarded. Although I did not consent, Mr. Breedlove was not of consensual age when Mayor Adams began seducing him.

My offender used force while Mr. Breedlove’s offender used Coercion and the city’s resources along with his position of power to seduce and use Mr. Breedlove, a very young teen at the time. …It has been suggested that Mr. Breedlove is not angry at what happened to him… We don’t have the benefit of knowing what Mr. Breedlove will say about what happened to him when he is a 34 year old man… I could venture a guess and my heart tells me that he will be wishing he had pursued justice against Mayor Adams. That is why as commissioners you need to stand up for what is right and not tolerate Mayor Adams in office for one more day.”

City of Scappoose is OPEN for Bidness

Let’s see, when it comes to stimulus what makes more sense:

Spending us into oblivion and raising taxes?

Taking the kicker, raising taxes, and building bike paths with “stimulus” money?

or doing what the Mayor of the City of Scappoose suggests:

Scappoose Economic Development Proposal

Scott Burge, Mayor, City of Scappoose

  1. Business Licenses

Give Scappoose based business owners a break for 2010 by exempting businesses based in Scappoose from business license fee for 2010.

  1. System Development Fees

Reduce system development fees for Roads and Sewer by 50% for any new private light industrial or commercial projects between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010.

  1. Building Department Permits and Fees

Reduce Permits and Fees by 25% for all Building Department Permits and Fees for light industrial and commercial permits and fees between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. Accept City Manager Proposed budget and cover budget via general fund contingency budget. If necessary move $50,000 from cash carry over to contingency for this purpose.

  1. Planning Department Permits and Fees

Reduce Permits and Fees by 25% for all Planning Department Permits and Fees for light industrial and commercial zoned properties between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. See above for covering budget.

  1. Targeted Fee Breaks

As an example: Target Water Rate reductions for 3 years to brewery or brew pub locating in Scappoose. Give brewery a 50% water/sewer rate reduction for 3 years.

Create web page that advertises available properties and vacancy on light industrial and commercial sites. Advertise demographics of Scappoose, tax rates, fee structures.

Hmmmm….let’s think…

Pedophile May Get Parole. Unless You Do Something.

Email the folks in charge of hearing from you

Kim.gonzales@doc.state.or.us. Make sure you mention you don’t want your email address made public.



Lake Oswego) “We encourage Oregonians to tell the State Parole Board not to let this dangerous predator out of prison,” said Steve Doell President of Crime Victims United of Oregon. 68-year old William “Hank” Dufort is scheduled for a hearing before the board on Wednesday March 4th. Dufort is serving a 48-year sentence for sexually abusing six teenage boys at the Corvallis Farm Home between 1987 and 1989. Dufort was director at the home.

“We believe Dufort is such a high-risk deceitful predator that no supervision is available to contain his criminal behavior outside of the Oregon Department of Corrections,” said Edie and Doug Richard, parent of one of Dufort’s victims. “We are asking the board to deny parole because the facts show he is a very dangerous repeat criminal and professional predator. The board has a responsibility to protect all children from this individual. It is as simple as that.”
