No More Austerity – Our public programs and services are vital in promoting the health and happiness of our communities. We should be strengthening and expanding them and reject the narrative that we have to go without.
The Money is Here – Telling us there are limits to what our local government can fund, and that communities and services must compete with each other for funding, is both insincere and false. Portland is experiencing a wealth boom and there is plenty of potential revenue to fund all our services.
Tax the Rich – It’s time to change the conversation around wealth, where it comes from, and its place in ensuring Portland works for EVERYONE so we can build up the city our communities need and deserve. It’s time to TAX THE RICH!
