Oh, and I didn’t vote at all for all the judges, or anyone running unopposed. And I honestly can’t remember what I voted on the Metro bond measure. I hate Metro as an example of an unaccountable quasi-public agency (an example of Portland’s governmental corruption – handing money out to favored parties) but they’re asking for money for what they were originally created to do (preserve greenspaces and parks and stuff) so it seemed like a good thing.
Oh, and also, he said, but I can’t find a link anywhere, so you’re just going to have to trust me, he said, “If all you do is vote, you barely get a passing grade in citizenship.”
On that basis, yay! I’m (barely) passing!
