May Ballot Measure to add to your taxes and benefit Multnomah County

MEASURE 3-372: CLACKAMAS COUNTY $5.00 Annual Vehicle Registration Fee dedicated to acquiring property, designing, engineering and constructing a replacement for the Sellwood Bridge and its approaches.

Superb: Multnomah County lets the Sellwood Bridge rot, and then wants us to pick up the tab. After all, 90% of all trips across the Sellwood begin or end in Multnomah County; why should Clackamas taxpayers pick up the tab?

CITIZENS INFORMED and AWARE (CIA) will have a forum on the subject Wednesday night, 7PM, at the Fellowship Hall of Rose Villa, 13505 SE River Road in Oak Grove. Please do not park on the Rose Villa property itself: It is OK to park on either side of River Road or in the lot across River Road from Rose Villa.

If you show up, you can influence folks who can influence other folks.... and make your voice heard.
