Abstract

"City" piece about Ed Democracy and Steve Kelly who recently broke away from the nonpolitical Bayside Neighborhood Association and formed Portland Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility (PCFR), a non-partisan group. Democracy and Kelly claim that Portland City Hall does respect free speech and public input on questions facing the city. They say that PCFR will provide residents and property-owners with a voice in their next battle: moving municipal elections from May to November. Currently, membership in PCFC numbers about thirty, and Democracy said the organization hopes to have 100 volunteers at the polls this November collecting the 4,400 signatures necessary to put the question of changing election dates on the ballot. With comments on PCFR by City Manager Robert Ganley, councilors George Campbell, Jim Cloutier, Cheryl Leeman, and Mayor Nick Mavadones.
