Contributions to the campaign for Portland Public Schools' $548 million construction bond
continue to roll in. And these aren't small-time donations. Legacy Health System
gave $5,000 recently. Northwest Natural Gas
gave $25,000, and Adidas
gave $10,000—the same amount as Nike gave last month.
The Portland School Board is expected to vote on Jan. 24 whether to couple the bond campaign with a second measure to promote the renewal of a five-year local-option levy.
Members of the School Board first raised that possibility last month, and a subcommittee of the board agreed on Tuesday to forward the idea to the full board.
