Leavitt Bails on Scheduled Interview

by lewwaters

All week long Victoria Taft has been announcing a scheduled interview with Mayor Tim Leavitt of Portland’s Vancouver for 11:25 AM Thursday, May 12. The scheduled interview was accepted earlier this week.

When Eric, Victoria’s producer called Mayor Leavitt, he did not answer and after first saying they did not know where he was, Eric was told the scheduled interview had been cancelled. Wouldn’t it have nice of the Mayor’s office to inform KPAM 860’s Victoria Taft.

Why is Tim Leavitt afraid to face voters and answer questions on his many changes since lying to get into office?

Leavitt says, “I would urge this board to hold off on making those decisions until we better understand the climate and have the facts and details at our fingertips.” Concerning voting on light rail maintenance funding Leavitt said, “There are a lot of complex machinations that are happening. Locking us into a decision either way is way too premature.”

However, he seemed perfectly willing to be locked into a decision last year when he pulled his sleight of hand trick to combine voting for light rail maintenance funding in with a vote for C-Tran funding.

And now, he reneges on a scheduled appearance where citizens would have the ability to confront him outside of the confines of the Vancouver City Cartel? He sends notice of cancelling two minutes AFTER the time scheduled to be on?

Bad form, Mayor Leavitt, Very bad form.

In lieu of the actual Mayor, callers to Victoria Taft’s program chimed as if they were him.
