Mayor Charlie Hales and Council, City of Portland, Portland's Socially Responsible Investments Committee
Portland Mayor Charlie Hales has promised to make good on the burned fuel and taxpayer dollars he spent to meet with the Pope, after letting the Fennica break through Greenpeace fliers despite heroic actions by Portland Rising Tide, Climate Action Coalition, 350PDX and great community support.
SO PORTALNDERS ASKED FOR A RETURN ON INVESTMENT... IN THE FORM OF A LITTLE DIVESTMENT.
We asked Charlie to divest City of Portland's Portfolio of Fossil Fuel Holdings* and during this petition drive he has responded by agreeing to put a resolution before City Council ON SEPT 24 AT 3PM not just to divest but to declare a moratorium on all future fossil fuel investments. Sign if you support that resolution. We have a Council to convince THIS SEPETEMBER.
*Combined Exxon & Chevron are 4.6% of the City's portfolio. That's $35,000,000 in Chevron and $28,350,000 in Exxon. Our Responsible Business Practices should preclude ecologically unsound investments.
