Not a citizen? No problem!

Not a citizen? No problem!

“A lot of families in East Portland are refugee families, not actually American citizens. They deserve equal representation in the same way a big donor in the West Hills does.” – Shemia Fagan

Today, Willamette Week published a “hotseat” article about Shemia Fagan which could best be described as lukewarm. The paper asked a bunch of softball questions which didn’t address her chronic absenteeism or why she wouldn’t include a prominent Senator in her plea to City Hall to restore sidewalk funding.

Perhaps the most telling quote was the one where Fagan made sure to point out one of her main priorities: Giving non-citizens preferential treatment over taxpaying Oregonians. Most people would disagree – but then again, Shemia Fagan isn’t most people.
