Here are a couple of things readers should know about President Obama coming to Portland this Wednesday Oct. 20 to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Kitzhaber
at the Oregon Convention Center.
1) Anti-war protesters
plan to rally from 3:3o pm to 6:45 pm near the convention center
urging the president to end both wars and close the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
will cut MAX and #6 bus service to the convention center around the time of the president's visit. Citing security, TriMet says services to the convention center will be cut when the Secret Service notifies the agency and that commuters should expect "moderate" to "significant" delays through the afternoon and evening rush hour.
In short, if you're planning on going to the protest, ride your bike.
