On Wednesday, WW
broke the news that Multnomah Commissioner Lisa Naito has been living outside her Southeast Portland district for nearly a year and a half.
to read the original story.)
There's nothing in the county charter to prevent her from doing that, but it seems to fly in the face of the very idea of district representation. Commissioners are required to live in their districts for a year and a half before
they get elected, after all. In neighboring Washington County, commissioners vacate their seats if they move out of their districts.
In a faxed response to WW,
Naito says she "will never lose sight of the needs, the goals and the wishes of the people of Southeast Portland."
So, dear readers, here are our questions for you:
Do you care that she no longer lives in the district she was elected to represent?
If so, should she resign?
Fire away in the comments section, if you will.
