Can Mayor Adams Survive Or Should He Resign?

We'll pose the question to our guests on "Straight Talk" Saturday night at 7pm.
Originally, we thought the Mayor himself would be our guest.
He accepted my invitation when I talked to him Monday night when he was in DC right after he admitted to the relationship with a teenage intern.
However, as events unfolded for the Mayor this week, his scheduler said he wasn't able to confirm a time for the Mayor to tape the show.

So, we have assembled another panel of guests to talk about the scandal in the Mayor's office.
They include; the Willamette Week's Nigel Jaquiss who broke the story; Marty Davis, the publisher of the state's largest gay and lesbian newspaper, "Just Out"; and Portland Commissioner Randy Leonard.

We'll talk to Nigel about how he broke the story. We'll talk to Marty about the reaction from the gay and lesbian community to the paper's editorial calling for his resignation. And we'll ask Commissioner Randy Leonard how this is affecting the city council and how it moves forward.

Let us know what questions you have.

We still hope to have Mayor Adams on our program at some point.

Join us Saturday night at 7pm for "Straight Talk".
