Recall Campaign Starts Using Paid Signature Gatherers

Sam Adams Recall

The campaign to recall Mayor Sam Adams says it started using paid signature gatherers on Sunday, about one month before the final deadline to submit the necessary signatures to the Portland auditor's office. But the mostly volunteer-led campaign still faces several challenges.

The campaign has until April 20 to collect 32,183 valid signatures. So far, volunteers have collected 10,000, the campaign announced over the weekend. And since being kicked out of City of Portland-owned digs, the campaign has operated out of a volunteer's home.

The campaign's press release from Sunday did not say what company would oversee the signature gatherers, but the Portland Tribune reported yesterday that it would be Ready Intelligence Service, a Northeast Portland company. The Trib also reported that Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle would give another, undisclosed donation to the campaign, according to a volunteer.
