On Sunday, The Oregonian published a story by Beth Slovic (who used to work at WW), suggesting that the conditions of roads in Portland have deteriorated under Mayor Adams, while he has funded other priorities.  The article extends the reporting done in this paper back in May of 2011, called "Dirt Road, Dead Ends."

Adams has fought back, first with a column in today's O, and this morning, with the decision to post the audio tape of the interview Slovic had with Adams on the Mayor's blog. The interview is more than an hour long and gets quite contentious. (Scroll to the bottom of the page or listen below.)
