Extra! Extra!

The new year has gotten off to a great start for Street Roots vendors, thanks to all of you who bought the paper from our hardworking guys and gals. A new paper is at the press now, and will be rolling your way tomorrow morning. Here’s what’s on deck:

 A long way from home: Soldiers return from the battlefields to do combat against unemployment, health care needs and the looming specter of poverty and homelessness. A special international report from the Street News Service and Street Roots.

Mark White: The latest in our series of interviews with Portland City Council candidates. Jake Thomas talks with Mark about housing, East Portland and his experience in City Hall.

Movers, shakers and moneymakers: How Portland’s leading mayoral candidates are stacking up financially in a return to high-priced races. Janice Thompson with Common Cause Oregon explains the trends in campaign donations.

Plus, a profile of vendor Saul Cortes and a look into the life of a Russian counterpart in St. Petersburg. There’s commentary by Neighborhood Partnerships on upcoming actions in the State Legislature, plus poetry and more. Pick up a copy and join us in celebrating the first Street Roots of 2012!
