Multnomah County Passes Antiwar Resolution

Portland Communique reports that Multnomah County passed an antiwar resolution:

"Going where the Portland City Council feared to tread, in a session that was short and painless, the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners this morning adopted an antiwar resolution by a 4-1 vote.

"[...] Lonnie Roberts, the lone dissenting vote, appeared mainly concerned with the futility of the Board expressing an opinion on the matter. Confusingly, he also expressed concern that there were more pressing matters facing Multnomah County, failing to see the connections between a massively-funded war machine (on the one hand) and woefully-underfunded social services (on the other hand)."
