It's been four weeks and two days since Mayor Hales announced the assignments for which member of Council is in charge of each bureau. Since I wasn't expecting to be the Commissioner in Charge of the Bureau of Development Services (BDS), and Portland Parks & Recreation (PPR), my staff and I have spent time learning about the bureaus. My initial comments on these bureaus are posted here.
I have not opened comments on this post, as I am leaving on vacation after my community events on July 4, and won't be following either this blog or my email. I'm visiting my 83-year old mother, who doesn't believe in new fangled Internets (but is better than me at texting). Please contact my staff for assistance while I'm gone, or call 503-823-4000 for the City's wonderful Information and Referral staff.
I look forward to re-engaging with Portlanders when I return on July 24.
