luckylucy, I've worked for 41 years at probably 20 different jobs and I've never known anyone working there beforehand - honestly.
Amy Ruiz was hired as Adams' sustainability advisor. She herself admitted she is probably the least qualified sustainability advisor candidate in Portland. Are you saying the old adage that it's not what you know but whom you know should be true in Portland politics as it was in the Bush administration? Do you not see with her hiring the appearance of impropriety?
"People somehow want a saint to work in politics. Grow Up. Mr and Ms prissy pants. "
luckylucy, you don't know your audience. I don't want a saint in office, I am grown up and I'm - trust me on this one - not a prissy pants. I want someone I can trust in office. If that person has made a mistake in his past, has paid for that mistke and proven his trustworthiness again then I find that person acceptable to be in office. Sam Adams has not paid for his mistakes or proven his trustworthiness again.
"MAYBE, Portland needs to stop behaving like some podunk small town and put on a sharp suit. if we just shut up and start acting like a grown up city"
Not from around here are you luckylucy? Been here long? We don't like "sharp suits" . We're into flannel and denim. We like being Portland, we don't want to be Seattle or San Francisco. We like our politicians honest, we pay attention and we're very voiceferous when we see something we don't like.
Why do you bring up the age 18? Adams groomed and made out with a 17 year old. This did not happen in Adams' "personal life." It is and was public (public restroom, etc.). Adams' subsequent lies, conspiricies and slander brought this sordid affair further into the public domain.
"But really, it comes down to homophobia."
Playing the Gay card, hey. This really cheapens the lame excuses you've already dug up for Adam's behavior. luckylucy, we elected Adams. We knew he was gay when we elected him.
