Excerpts from a 'State of the County' presentation by Multnomah County

Commission Chairwoman Diane Linn,

delivered June 20 at Portland City Club:

'There is a person at the end of all these budget cuts Ñ and almost always there is a family attached to that person.'

'The business income tax was created in the '70s. Like disco and Burt Reynolds, it is an outdated relic of those days.'

'If a child isn't achieving, it isn't just about what's happening in the school classroom. It's also about what's happening at home.'
