Statement on Tear Gas Ban
In response to today's announcement by Mayor Ted Wheeler that he was banning the use of CS gas, Candidate Sarah Iannarone released the following statement.
A day after he learned that 2/3rds of Portlanders disapprove of his performance, he takes an action we have been demanding since May. But it is too little too late. Children have been gassed in their homes, moms have been gassed in the streets, and our youth have been assaulted by his police force for over 100 days. Portland voters will remember this on Election Day.
