While working at the City of Portland Bureau of Transportation, I was provided with a Trimet pass as a perk of employment. Since I cashed final check from the Portland Bureau of Transportation on March 26,2015 I am being bypassed for rides and harassed on the train and buses.
I have been discriminated against and harassed by Involved City of Portland Oregon Employees and their associates for over a year at the St. John’s Branch of The Multnomah County Library. On August 24, 2019 I was harassed by 2 former City of Portland Oregon Employees and then told to leave the librarian.
A barricade was laid out by Location Services Inc. a contracting company hired by the Portland Oregon Bureau Of Transportation. The barricade intended to prevent the Kowitz Family from leaving there home during a riot, was painted on all 4 streets outside Mrs. Kowitz’s residence.
