Portland: Home crap home. I discovered today that rent that was $2800.00 last year is now lowered to $1400.00. People are leaving in droves and coming to my town (Eugene). And between the exodus in Portland and the exodus of California, the housing market in my town is impossible. There's no availability for buyers or renters and if you’re lucky enough to find a place, expect $300.00 to 600.00 increase on rent from last year at this time or $200,000.00 or more for a mortgage. The democrats have done this. And the Mayor of Portland is full of shit
We left Portland over a half a century ago. My mother bought her first home there for $6500 in a neighborhood that had black and white people living in harmony. Mom was a divorced mother of 4 working with her best friend (Robbie was a single black mother) and we attended the same church.
Our neighborhood store owners (disabled couple) used to pay us kids 5 cents to collect all the garbage off off the sidewalks and throw it in their dumpster. They also gave us a little money to help stock the shelves and man the cash register while they were helping customers.
We were safe enough that we would walk to school and go in and out of each others’s homes all day long without worrying about checking in for more than meals and our family curfews.
I would never want to move back to that city or even visit it again. We loved living in Seattle 30 years ago too, but I’d never want to return there either. It seems most liberal havens have become dangerous places to be, especially the cities.
