The Trib’s got it here.
Portland Mayor Sam Adams came to the meeting to address the Board for some reason. Here’s what he said:
“With your decision to delay (the vote),” he said, “I offer you the full participation of the city of Portland. … to figure out the best sustainable way forward to make sure every Portland parent can expect their child to walk into any Portland school and walk across the plank with their certificate.”
Sustainable? Full participation of the City Council? Why? Walking the plank with their certificate?
He’s pretty much the last guy I go to to help with the schools. Maybe he’ll steal money to run the schools from the water bureau too.
