Beaverton wants to bring the Portland Beavers to Beaverton AND at teh tax payers expense. I think that is one of the most idiotic thing that our Beaverton "leaders" have come up with yet. First of all, bringing the Beavers to Beaverton would kill this town. The traffic is horrible the way it is now... bring the Beavers in, AND in that area, would be almost impossible. Our so called leaders want to do BIG things for Beaverton that will put Beaverton on the map....PERIOD! They think that bringing in the Beavers will make people want to move here..... What a crock! IF they want to put Beaverton on the map I strongly suggest that they start making Beaverton more livable. If Portland couldn't keep the Beavers then what makes our idiot leaders think Beaverton can keep them? Wake up and look at the facts.....
There are people in this country AND right bere in Beaverton, who are living from pay check to pay check. I say, if the so called leaders of this city want the Beavers in our city let THEM pay for it..... They are making a lot more money that most.
Lets clean up our city and repair the roads that need to be repaired..... lets Cut the property taxes..... lets improve the city's police and fire..... Lets build a new jail, a basic jail without all the luxuries, BASIC, lets do more for the city to entice companies and business to come and WANT to live here. Lets take care of us tax payers because without us there is no city.
Look at teh companies that are moving out of the city...the small businesses that can't make it because the taxes and cost of living is too damned high..... and now our "leaders" want to RAISE taxes to pay for this stadium. They say it will cost $55 -$60 MILLION dollars to build the stadium here.... That does NOT include teh parking, teh rebuilding of roads to accomidate all the traffic... WAKE UP PEOPLE! Vote no on this issue. It is a bad idea that will cost us tax payers thousands of dollars we do not have. Beaverton is NOT big enough to support a baseball team so it would be a waste of money.

I think that the Portland Beavers should move down to Corvallis, Oregon, home of the two-time College Baseball National Champion, Oregon State Beavers, because they have a die hard baseball fans here in Corvallis, Oregon. Period.
