GRESHAM, Ore. — In spite of Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s instructions to Multnomah County businesses to once again stop serving meals and drinks indoors, the owner of Spud Monkey’s Bar will not be following the mandates.

“We’re tired, we’re worn out.  We’re stressed, we cry every night.  I can’t pay my rent.  I come in here 7 days a week for the past 14 months trying to make this work.  I did everything that Kate Brown asked me to do.  I can’t do this anymore.”

Last week, the Governor placed 15 counties in the Extreme Risk level.

At a Monday press conference, Sandy Mayor Stan Pulliam announced that he had filed a lawsuit against the Governor over COVID-19 restrictions.  The lawsuit also represents a number of businesses and organizations.
