Deputy Singh received a call about a naked man sleeping near the Dollar Tree on Cherry Park. When she arrived, she found just that. She gave him a blanket and a few community members nearby gave him some clothes.
Mental and physical health of this man was a concern so Deputy Singh called for AMR to come check him out and he was taken to the hospital.
Although we never want to find someone in this condition, we are happy to help by giving someone a warm blanket and connecting them with the services they need.
During his tenure serving as City Commissioner, Nick Fish was a champion of the people, he cared about the most vulnerable, he loved our city, and he was a fair and steady force in Portland's City Council. In all my interactions with Commissioner Fish, even when we didn’t agree, he was honorable and a man of his word. What a great loss to our city. He will be greatly missed. Our condolences and prayers go out to his family during this tragic time.
