Seattle, Portland, NY, could lose federal aid

Is there a way to force the governor and mayor to step down?  I am sure a lot of people feel the same way you do.

If you get enough signatures you can have a recall at the next election.  That is actually happening with the psychopath city council member of my district Kshama Sawant

I think in our state we can have a recall vote in a non-election year if enough people sign a petition with just cause.  Once the petition signatures are presented a vote has to be scheduled in a timely manner.

If they don't want me to benefit from the taxes robbed from my paycheck then they shouldn't tax me.

THAT is the single kind of independence and progressive thinking that they disagree with.

We are big on initiatives here in Oregon.  I think there is some recall initiatives started for the mayor.  The governor would be a little harder.  Oregon ranks down in the lowest 2 or 3 states for covid infections per million, and very low on deaths too.  FIre season  was brutal this year and the state did pretty well at responding. My sister, my niece, and my brother in law all were in evac. zones.  They seem to think Oregon handled that, protected their property and got them back home quickly.

so there is no way to remove them before an election.

I'm glad your families experience was positive though.

No, but she is not due for re-election for three years, however if we get enough signatures then we can vote her out in November and that WILL happen.

I remember when I worked for a software company that provided software for county government we had 9 clients in Oregon and they kept us busy with all the changes because of petitions and voters wanting legislation to address issues. 

I figure it is the most truly democratic state in the union.

Yeah.  Fortunately we had fire fighters from Mexico and Australia come up to help us. 

But the Chinooks are currently in Afghanistan, not helping Americans here at home. The Oregon National Guard sent 60 soldiers and six of its Chinooks to Afghanistan in May. “With the potential to drawn down troops, Chinooks are important for their heavy lift capabilities as they can carry equipment from one location to another efficiently,” Lt. Col. Joe Mendel said in a press release. 

They are there to help with the draw down of troops by lifting people and supplies. It is unfortunate timing, but I would find it hard to fault a Republican or Democratic governor whos sent National Guard resources to help US Military leave Afghanistan.  I know that seems like an awfully snowflake liberal thing to do.

Haha...I expect we'll soon see these three seditionist chumps racing across the desert together in an old convertible...like Thelma and Louise...and Bill:

Furious Mayors Of New York, Seattle And Portland Respond To Trump's "Anarchy" Designation

Quote

"The President is playing cheap political games with Congressionally directed funds," they wrote in a joint statement. "Our cities are bringing communities together; our cities are pushing forward after fighting back a pandemic and facing the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, all despite recklessness and partisanship from the White House."

The democrat mayors and governors seem to have succumbed to their own propaganda.  They actually believe America supports what they are doing because OF COURSE, everyone hates the BOM as much as they do.  I hope he can defund them immediately until they comply with their responsibilities to their own citizens.

It's just political posturing before the election.  The same thing will happen as what happened when Trump tried to withhold funding to sanctuary cities-  the courts will remind him (again) that the power of the purse belongs to congress and he can't do it.......
