In a post on the official Mayoral site, Sam Adams says:
Frustrated with the lack of “out of the box” thinking about options and assumptions, last month I directed Portland to undertake our own analysis of CRC options. I asked for data from the CRC, and was surprised by the alarmed staff response our request has received.
But apparently the letter he co-signed with David Bragdon, Tim Leavitt and and Steve Stuart puts a different light on things:
As the work requested by the four local elected leaders moves forward, I have directed City staff to suspend our independent analysis, and participate instead in the shared work we described in our January 22 letter to Governors Gregoire and Kulongoski.
I wonder what generated all the alarm?
