Ruth Ann Barrett was a resident of Old Town Chinatown in Portland, Oregon from 2013 to 2019.  When COVID-19 ends, she intends to locate her business, the EarthSayers Network back into the neighborhood.  This site is used to publish her blog, Ripples, and to promote the Old Town Dog Ballpark proposal (101dogspdx.com). There are documents one might find useful if advocating for affordable housing and other community issues and projects.  

Visit pdxdowntowner.com for an overview of past positions promoted by Ms. Barrett and her work here in the neighborhood, Portland's Caring Community, a positioning she created for Old Town in keeping with its primary industry and housing units.
