Farewell, Cary Clarke

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Mar 9, 2010 at 4:06 PM


Sad days here at the Mercury music corral. Our dear local music columnist—he of Our Town Could Be Your Life fame—Cary Clarke is leaving this paper for ever and ever and ever.

Clarke is departing the slums of print journalism for the bright lights of City Hall, taking a position as the City of Portland Arts & Culture Policy Coordinator. One of the original founding voices of PDX Pop Now!, a tireless champion of all-age music reform, and a vocal fan of Sublime (seriously), Clarke will be a great resource for the city of Portland.

Congrats, Cary.

P.S. Now that you are in City Hall, I expect all my parking tickets to magically disappear. Remember, I have some embarrassing photos of you.
