Moving to Portland in 2016

My daughter of 8 and I are moving to Portland next June and I have looked at the most popular neighborhoods, and the neighborhoods surrounding downtown are more inviting probably because I don't drive however my daughter is into dance so I prefer a school of the arts. I am self employed from home so that is no issue . Can someone advise me on the best places to live and rent also the best schools foe elementary. I am a single parent do I am looking for affordability .

Best Portland Oregon Hotels - or where to stay when you need to lay your head down at night

If you're traveling to Portland Oregon, either to visit or in preparation for moving there, you need to have a place to stay. Many people stay out at the Portland Airport, making a common mistake in thinking that it is "centrally located to everything."

No... not even close. It can easily take 45-60 minutes in normal traffic to drive the few miles from the airport to downtown. Longer if it is rush…

Dr. Monica Wehby Exploring A Run for Governor in 2016

Dr. Monica Wehby is considering a challenge to incumbent Gov. Kate Brown in 2016.

Wehby, a Portland pediatric neurosurgeon, ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 2014, losing to incumbent U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore).

Since then, Wehby formed a political action committee, MONICA PAC, which has raised and spent $183,000 this summer.

In recent days, Wehby and Robert Stryk, a political consultant representing her, have reached out to leading GOP figures in Oregon, seeking to gauge interest in Wehby's seeking the party's nomination for governor next year.

A spokesman for Wehby, Christian Bourge, confirmed she is considering the race but has made no decisions.

"Dr. Monica Wehby is being courted by both Republican and Democrat leaders at the state and national levels about the possibility of her serving as Oregon’s next governor,” Bourge said in a statement.

St. Mary’s Academy Officials Launch "Continuing Conversation" With Portland Archdiocese Over LGBT Hiring

Aftershocks continue to ripple through St. Mary’s Academy and the Catholic Church following historic policy changes at the school in the wake of firing a gay staffer.

Officials at St. Mary’s, including president Christina Friedhoff and principal Kelli Clark, met this morning with a bishop in the Archdiocese of Portland. They emerged this afternoon with a joint statement pledging “a continued conversation” on the decision to hire openly LGBT faculty and staff.

The context of that conversation?

St. Mary’s administrators warned parents and students Thursday that the Archdiocese could remove the school’s religious designation. Portland Archbishop Alexander K. Sample is a staunch foe of same-sex marriage, and vocally supported the school withdrawing a contract offer to college counselor Lauren Brown, who is gay.

Here’s the full statement from St. Mary’s. It includes the full text of the school’s new equal-opportunity  employment policy.

Letter to the St. Mary’s Academy community
August 28, 2015

To the St. Mary’s Academy community:

St. Mary’s is a diverse community that welcomes all students, faculty, alumnae, parents and friends.

We now recognize that our decision to rescind the job offer to Ms. Brown after we learned of her intent to enter into a same-sex marriage did not reflect St. Mary’s mission and beliefs.

Effective the evening of Wednesday, August 26, the board voted unanimously to change our employment policies to be inclusive of all individuals, bringing our employment policies in line with our values. That policy is included below.

Today we met with Bishop Peter Smith of the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon at a mutually agreed upon location. A joint statement from St. Mary’s Academy and the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon follows:

“The Archdiocese and St. Mary’s Academy are in discussion regarding the recent policy change by the Board of Directors and committed to continued conversation.”

This has been a difficult period for our community and we are committed to healing and to moving forward with transparency.

We are proud of our work preparing the next generation of women leaders for service and leadership. We remain deeply committed to our Catholic identity.  

Sincerely,
Christina Friedhoff
President, St. Mary’s Academy

St. Mary’s Academy Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
St. Mary's Academy does not discriminate against any person because of age, gender, color, race, national origin, religion, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation or any other class protected by law. St. Mary's Academy will make efforts to ensure that employees and applicants will not be discriminated against on the basis of the characteristics mentioned above in terms or conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, classification, compensation, promotion, training, termination or any other employment decisions.
