Support our local businesses

October 31, 2013

The water main break on SW 4th & Burnside this week has impacted travelers, neighbors, and businesses. Some nearby businesses lost power and have flood damages. On Tuesday, Blue Collar Baking Company had to throw out all their product because of the damage.

Special thanks to Warren Becker, owner and head baker at Blue Collar, for welcoming Commissioner Novick and me to his bakery this morning. Blue Collar is up and running -- and delicious!

Portland depends on its small business community. Please show them your support.
