Portland Public Market
Portland Public Market backers Ron Paul and Amelia Hard posted a 1,700-word response to my column on the local blog Portland Food and Drink
I appreciate the response but regret that Amelia Hard and Ron Paul believe that my article in Willamette Week was based on a personal agenda or pre-determined results. The article was the product of more than 20 interviews and reflects the views and concerns of many members of Oregon's food, agriculture and urban planning communities. I stand by my story and the accuracy of all the quotes. Promoting local agriculture is a laudable goal and I share it with the supporters of the Portland Public Market project.
