Déjà vu all over again

October 3, 2015

It’s "déjà vu all over again" on the Tuesday Memo / Econ Minute podcast.

  • A few days after Los Angeles declares a state of emergency on homeless, Portland's Mayor Charlie Hales enters "me too" mode and declares a state of emergency in Portland ... even though homelessness has been an emergency since he was city commissioner 20 years ago.
  • Yet again, even though the city can't find money for homelessness or streets ... Portland has $3.3 million to pour into the streetcar for - get this - marketing!
  • Citizen activists get a ballot title to change the make-up of city council. Now, can they get the signatures?

Here's how you can hear more:

  • Listen on Podbean, the podcasting platform.
