The Oregon Supreme Court has halted the immediate sale of bonds to fund Clackamas County's portion of Milwaukie Light Rail.
The stay was filed by Attorney Eric Winters on behalf of group of the Clackastani Rebellion.
The sale of the bonds were the latest gambit by the Clackamas County Commissioners to fund the Milwaukie Light Rail extension--a project Clackamas County voters have proven at the ballot box they don't want.
Clackamas County Commissioners hurried the sale of the bonds before a special election on Measure 3-401 September 18th. It's only the latest move they've made to shut up and gavel down citizens.
Measure 3-401 would require Clackamas County to receive voter approval before spending the millions for the light rail extension and for any future light rail project.
Arrayed against the citizens are government officials and their self financed PR PAC called "Positively Clackamas." They use this grass roots sounding group to give PR spin in support of their attempted cram down of light rail.
The Clackastanis have had several successes. They fought to knock down the car tax which would have funded light rail via Sellwood Bridge renovation funding. They've also backed candidates for Clackamas County, two of whom may go on to victory in November.
The Clackastanis temporarily have now won in the Oregon Supreme Court. Clackamas County elected officials and Positively Clackamas--but I repeat myself---have until 5pm on September 11 to ask for more briefings on the Motion for a Stay.
