The mayor's office has canceled a press conference to talk about progress on funding for the homeless Resource Access Center in Old Town this afternoon. A dispute over funding for the access center has been raging for a year, and last week, even threatened to jeopardize the future of the sit/lie ordinance. So we were intrigued at the Mercury to hear about the press conference yesterday afternoon. From the mayor's spokesman, Roy Kaufmann:
WHAT: Mayor Sam Adams and Commissioner Nick Fish will be announcing progress on the Resource Access Center.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 28, 2009 at 3:15 p.m.
WHERE: Corner of NW Broadway & NW Hoyt (RAC site)
Mayor Sam Adams, City of Portland
Commissioner Nick Fish, City of Portland
Bob Walsh, Walsh Construction
Update, 1:40pm: Mayor Adams is rumored to have thrown up and gone home, sick. Next question: Is it swine flu?!!
