All statements involving Charlie Hales

On suspending system development charges for two years.

Says "I never billed a single hour of my time to the City of Portland in the last 10 years -- so, no revolving door."

Says  "I don’t agree with Mr. Hales that we should give a sweeping break to the developers to allow them to build that infill housing without paying for those very basics."

Say that under state law, "systems development charges can only be spent on capital investment."

Says "I worked with our Mayor and other commissioners to help save the school year when a budget crisis in Salem threatened to cut four weeks of the school year," including  negotiating with teachers to work for free.

Says "streetcars carry more people than buses … you attract more riders who don't ride transit now, and actually the operating costs are not any greater than the bus."

"When I served as City Commissioner, we made great strides …we successfully fought for, and won, adding women and people of color to the Fire Bureau."
