On Wednesday, July 31st, 2019, community member, Chuck Crockett sat down to talk to Mayor Ted Wheeler about his open associations with known sex offenders, such as Matt Hennessee.
Commissioner Nick Fish got up and left the City Council Chambers, right before Crockett spoke, and then sat back down, right at the end of his 2 minutes.
Commissioner Chloe Eudaly let out a Long Sigh after Crockett had mentioned the city’s lack of response and aid to the African American community in Portland. She kept her head down, for the most part, occasionally looking up and getting distracted by the sounds of construction on the building, but overall, appearing overtly disinterested, the entire time he was speaking.
At the end, none of the commissioners responded to any of his public testimony, aside from a “Thank you, next” given by the Mayor.

Child Rapist Matt Hennessee
On June 12th, 2019, Portland Police Bureau held a meeting with Pastor Matt Hennessee at the Doubletree Hotel with a Barbeque outside at Holliday Park. He was there to present his “Public Safety Plan.”
Hennessee is known to have raped his underaged family member, from when she was a preteen, to right before she would have turned of legal age, had she not told the truth to her school’s counselor, for fear of escalation.
This is known, yet, Hennessee has been given a role to serve in the community, alongside the Police Department, to reach out, personally, to disaffected youth.
