Survivor Portland Bureaucracy: Day 13

It was ever so close -- the margin was only one vote -- but Will won't. That is, Portland Housing Director Will White won't be with us any longer on Survivor Portland City Hall: Bureaucracy Edition, because the Tribal Council voted him off the island yesterday. Our newest player, Paul, was second in the balloting for expulsion, and the computer assigned Random Immunity to Revenue Sue.

Will must clear out his hut, affordable though it may have been, and leave the island immediately. He will be contacted by a Homer Williams recruiter shortly.

None of the players was named in any published writing by Nigel Jaquiss, Phil Stanford, or Randy Gragg yesterday, and so no one has Media immunity today. Random Immunity will be awarded by our sophisticated computer system once again, retroactively, to one of today's remaining players at the end of the voting tonight. The person with Random Immunity will remain on the island, at least for another day, even if he or she gets the most votes today. (Random Immunity will continue for the rest of this week only.)

And now it's time to vote another one of the city agency directors out of the picture. Do it for any reason, or for no reason, but cast your vote just once a day, please. We'll keep at this, every city workday, until only one bureaucrat survives. We should have a grand prize winner next week. He or she will get to buy valuable city real estate for a dollar, and receive tax breaks originally meant for poor people.

Photos of the original cast, and links to all of their bureaus, are here. Good luck to the six remaining cast members:

Now two thirds of the original tribe are gone. Who should be the next Portland city bureau director to leave the island?
Chief Dave - Fire Chief Dave Sprando
Ken - Interim Chief Administrative Officer Ken Rust
Lisa - Emergency Communications Bureau Director Lisa Turley
Paul - Development Services Bureau Director Paul Scarlett
Rosie - Police Chief Rosie Sizer
Revenue Sue - Revenue Bureau Director Sue Klobertanz

My civic duty is done, having voted off Amalia and speed bump Sue. The rest of these folks are either doing a reasonable job or under my radar. Thanks to Jack for letting us make Portland better.

The thing is, you don't have to have a clue about any of them to play. Sort of like real elections.
