Gresham Area Chamber Position: NO on the Metro Transportation Tax!

There are so many reasons to either vote or throw up your hands and say “I quit.” This year has stretched our patience, pocketbooks, and perspective. I, too, have had to reorganize my priorities as a CEO of a business organization to respond to the needs of our 503 members and their 32,451 employees.
But I urge you to join together to stand up and say yes to long-term good ideas and candidates and say a loud NO to untimely bad ideas. That brings me to the Metro Transportation Tax, an untimely bad idea.

Gresham Area Chamber has endorsed: 

Sue Piazza City Council, Kim Thatcher Secretary of State, Justin Hwang State Senate, Randy Lauer Troutdale Mayor.
