Mayor Sam Adams Heads to Canada, Then D.C. | Willamette Week
The story is about the mayor traveling to Canada and subsequently to DC. One purpose according to Adams’ spokesman Roy Kaufmann: "This trip also provides an opportunity for Mayor Adams to export Portland’s leadership in active transportation planning." The Week appropriately followed that comment with: "Insert your own joke here."
Interesting too - the political bedfellows. "[T]ravel companions to Canada include executives from Gerding Edlen, which just got a $3.2 million city subsidy for its new Vestas project in the Pearl, Glumac, Zimmer Gunsul Frasca, McKinstry, RDH, Green Building Services and Columbia Green Technologies."
