Mr. Why: Clack Co’s Paul Sava, Turn Coat

Get a load of this crap: “As I stated in 2010, Clackamas County is at a crossroads. “Politics as usual” has brought us to a point where the future of this County is in jeopardy. Misguided politicians that believe they know best have forced upon us an agenda that does not reflect our best interest. Even to this day those people believe that holding onto the failed Portland style agenda is the way to go and they will resist allowing the citizens a right to vote on the future of this County.” Really? — he must be called out on this!! This is infuriating. If Savas had his way there would be NO public vote on UR and right now the county would be about to approve a new UR plan on McLoughlin to fund Light Rail and all the usual development. The ONLY THING that stopped them was the initiative measure Savas voted against. He himself has been opposed to the citizens voting and is now providing the same Portland style resistance to the new rail vote measure. And he has the gall to pretend to be in favor of these public votes? —–Original Message—– From: Mary Olson To: stevescare ; stevespinnett ; Rob Kremer ; lindsay ; Jim Knapp_SAV_CC ; john070 ; Eric Sent: Tue, Jan 31, 2012 1:05 pm Subject: Fw: Elect Paul Savas for Clackamas County Chair Get a load of this crap: “As I stated in 2010, Clackamas County is at a crossroads. “Politics as usual” has brought us to a point where the future of this County is in jeopardy.
