 At PM, Portland safety commissioner blasts $7 MILLION budget for new syringes, homeless tents

Portland's Public Safety Commissioner slammed Multnomah County's proposed budget of $4 billion because of its allocation of more than $5 million for syringes and nearly $2 million for tents.

Rene Gonzalez wrote a letter to the Multnomah County Chair and Board of Commissioners, requesting them to rethink these two budget items before approving the 2025 budget, per KATU. Gonzalez noted that not only are taxpayers funding the tents and syringes, but they're also paying for the city's cleanup of the mess, which is a never-ending vicious cycle all at the cost of taxpayers.

You get more of what you subsidize. 

They vote poorly
