(Portland, OR) -- Oregon Governor Tina Kotek has pledged a-million dollars to help put homeless people to work in the Portland area cleaning up trash and graffiti. The money comes from the Governor's Strategic Reserve Fund and will go to the Clean Start program. It employs homeless people to remove trash, pickup needles and remove graffiti. Multnomah County Chair Jessica Vega Pederson says she'll ask the County Commission to add one-and-a-half million dollars to the program.
