Portland hires a second assistant city manager at $138,879. We also have a city manager and a mayor. Plus, we lost all of our waterfront concerts to Westbrook’s Pavilion at Rock Rowe and all of the revenue that these concerts generated in Portland.

It’s no wonder that our taxes are through the roof!
