(Update on 10 April 2012: You can see video from the fair of the Portland mayor and commissioner candidates at Portland Politic on Vimeo.)
Our friends with the Rose City Park neighborhood association give us a lot to live up to. For example, their community garden project is a few steps ahead of ours. And they have also done an impressively detailed deconstruction of the Portland Plan.
Next, on April 7 RCPNA will again be presenting a Candidates Fair. Here are the details:
