Local 88 passed a resolution opposing the Water District Initiative at last Wednesday’s General Membership meeting. There are many reasons Audubon, Oregon AFSCME, and Local 88 oppose the Water District. Among them:
- This initiative will reduce accountability and transparency
- This effort will undermine Portland’s most important environmental programs
- Attacks on Portland Bureau of Environmental Services are misguided
- The Water District Initiative is riddled with serious flaws
