JULIO ROSAS: There’s a cause why I solely go to Portland for work and never for any trip. That is unlucky that they’re having to resort to beg individuals to come back to the town as a result of the actual fact stays that Portland is susceptible to riots on prime of the crime wave that lots of different cities are experiencing. And so clearly individuals are gonna be hesitant to come back to the town and that’s simply because the town officers, at a minimal, tolerated the riots and at worst they did encourage a few of them at sure factors final 12 months.
I imply, you had Mayor Ted Wheeler, he didn’t even name out ANTIFA by identify till the start of this 12 months.
