Taxes Posted On: 5/3/2008 10:31:42 AM

While Portland has some positives the negatives far outweigh any positive. Try to find a decent place to live at a reasonable price. You won't. Finding a place at all at any price is challenging. Utility costs are sky high and the people seem eager to vote for every new tax and fee increase possible. You have vehicle inspection fees yearly in addition to your registration renewal and the people there want to add a vehicle emissions inspection fee similar to California's even though air quality is not an issue. The people constantly brag about their "common sense" but picked a police chief who when asked "How would you deal with the problem of people running red lights?" had no answer. In fact out of about 30 people polled only 1 person had an intelligent answer. Some of the other "common sense" answers included taking away their cell phone and doughnut privileges! In short the state is run and supported by people who have no common sense and the state itself has one of the highest rates of taxation in the country.
