Mayor Hales and members of the Council,
My name is Sandy Polishuk. I live in NE Portland. I am with 350PDX. I am also an historian and I want to give you a bit of history.
On June 5, 2013 Mayor Hales came out for fossil fuel divestment at a press conference for UN World Environment Day North America.
On July 16, 2013 Mayor Hales met with Bill McKibben and committed to divesting the City. Over the summer 350PDX met with the rest of the council and a strong majority of you committed to vote for our resolution.
