Adams' Admission Reaction: Adams and Fritz Confront Protester at City Council Meeting
Portland's policy on public testimony for topics unrelated to pre-determined agenda items establishes a deadline of Thursday at 5 pm to sign up for the following Wednesday's weekly meeting. The first five people to sign up are given three minutes at the beginning of each week's meeting at 9:30 am to address whichever topic they want.
But that policy became the subject of a tense exchange Wednesday after Rondine Ghiselline went before the City Council during a later portion of the meeting to urge Mayor Sam Adams to resign.
Ghiselline has been a regular at City Hall in the days since news broke that Adams had lied repeatedly about a sexual relationship with 18-year-old Beau Breedlove. Ghiselline says she lives in Portland and supported Adams when he ran for mayor, but she was last registered to vote in Oregon City, according to public records.
