Portland’s Mayor Learns How to Navigate His City from a Wheelchair and its Challenges
Wheelchair Ninja, and all-around groovy guy, Mike Conkright of Portland recently took Portland’s Mayor Ethan Strimling on a trip around his city…from a wheelchair.
Mike and Mayor Strimling went on an outing in Portland for the Mayor to see first-hand how inaccessible the city can be for someone, like Mike, in a wheelchair. This was to help educate the Mayor on the challenges and to share ideas for improvements!
The video is a quick peek of their time together. Mike said the Mayor got stuck a few times and needed a little help, but did learn something.
Sometimes it is as simple as putting yourself in another place to see things from a different angle. Thank you Mayor Strimling for doing just that.
Thank you Mike for helping to make the world, and one of my favorite cities, a better place.
